- Wedding: June 2014
So, I had previously posted about FIs family who is so encouraging and insistent on his younger siblings relationships (they are 14 and 19 now). It wasn’t worth a fight so we just figured we would see what happened once it was time for the wedding. In between I was told by Future Father-In-Law and Future Mother-In-Law (stepmother) that their son was very upset we got engaged before he and his girlfriend. Well sure enough they just got engaged right out of high school! I feel a little hurt because I really dont want to have to compare weddings and it seems Future Brother-In-Law is just a bit competitive. But then I also just feel really worried for them because they are so young and really helpless. The two of them probably could not boil water or do laundry themselves! I know plenty of people marry their highschool sweethearts and wish them the best, but as a parent I don’t know that I would be so encouraging about marrying young.
Just needed to vent this. I know I am slightly unreasonable and selfish because I don’t want to share my attention, but FIs stepmother and his dad are probably his only family that have shown any interest or excitement about it, even over my own family, and I am going to be sad to lose some of that =[
Hope you bees had a wonderful Christmas!
