Cast of characters:
Fiance’s brother: B
Fiance’s brother’s girlfriend: T
My fiance’s younger brother’s girlfriend is pregnant. She’s probably due…at the end of June. Please reference my wedding date…!
F thinks they planned it to be disruptive and dramatic. F asked his brother to be in the wedding, and his brother complained about that because B thought he should be the second groomsman not the fourth groomsman. Then B said he wasn’t sure if he could even be in the wedding. Then B thought my fiance didn’t WANT him in the wedding. He’s very dramatic.
Given that T’s only 19, and they’re both really irresponsible, I doubt it was planned at all. I just wonder whether my fiance’s mother will be okay missing the birth of a grandchild for a wedding (they’ll be in PA, we’ll be in NH). It’s not certain when T’s exactly due, but she’ll definitely be too pregnant to travel at the time of our wedding. *throws hands up* INLAWS!

Yikes that sucks. have you talked to Future In-Laws about it yet? I doubt it’s at all planned, but it sure is inconvenient 🙁

What can ya do? Just keep planning, and pass out cigars when the little one sprouts.

Beautifully executed… don’t you think? The drama of youth and pregnancies. Hope it all works out for the best for both of you women.

I just hope my fiance’s mom still comes to the wedding. She babies her youngest son (the one who got the teenager pregnant) and would probably want to be there when the baby is born. My fiance thinks she won’t want to miss the wedding, but I don’t know. It’s just…poor timing. I wish them well, but it’s frustrating. Their family is so dramatic.
Oh and I also learned this evening at dinner that my fiance’s older brother thinks women who go back to work after having kids care more about their careers than they do about their children. Wonderful.

@peachacid: But it’s okay to not have enough money for the kids if you don’t go back to work? What an immature way of thinking.

@peachacid: Because everyone should let the man provide for the family if he says so!
That sounds like such a sucky situation – not much you can do though, except come on here and vent about it! We’ll happily plot with you about ways to bring them down

Yikes, what a sticky situation. I hope your Future Mother-In-Law will still be at your wedding!

Side comment: I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a second or forth Groomsmen. I thought there was a Bridesmaid or Best Man and groomsmen.
