It was your choice. I think your opinion was good and that you stayed out of saying things behind his back. You did not have to leave though because you already stated how you felt. There’s nothing wrong with staying, unless you felt uncomfortable.

I agree with you. But people like to talk and spout their opinions, its just what they do. I understand where they’re coming from, they just want to make sure he doesn’t make the same mistake, but what do they know? its good that your uncle is happy 🙂 Did they make him feel uncomfortable while he was there? Maybe you could contact him later to tell him you are happy for him and offer his new bride help with her engagement  🙂

I like the way you handled it. I think their concerns are valid but none of their business 🙂 Basically he is old enough to make his bed and lie in it. I would have the same concerns as your relatives if someone I cared about was rushing into marriage but that isn’t to say the marriage will fail or that the couple won’t be happy. Its good that you didn’t join the trash talk and that you stuck up for them.

I would have stuck up for them. You did the right thing.
