    You can put a big fat check mark next to "lonely" That is the hard thing- no one really knows him. UUGH! Parents!

      lonely or not he must be really suave with the words and somewhat manipulative because i dont think your mom would just be that dumb to fall for a convict. maybe she will snap out of it ORRR maybe he is really a great guy. whatever it is dont let this stop your special day from being the best possible. i know its an insnae amount of stress probably for you right now but what else can be done.

        Wow steph - that is really a bad situation. maybe you can try writing her a letter about how you feel regarding her safety and then also that she can't wait a couple more months until after your wedding - that is very hurtful

          Oh my, that is a crazy chain of events! I'm not sure how to help, but I think you should try to urge them to wait til after your wedding...at least then maybe there'd be more time for your mom to at least get to know him better.

          Stephanie, this is totally nutty. I would urge you and your siblings to immediately get a background check or P.I. on this guy to find out his deal. Obviously your mom is not thinking clearly. Hopefully you or your siblings can try to get her to hold out a little longer to wait until after your wedding at least. If she does get married before your wedding anyway... and you were already having second thoughts about inviting him... I'd tell your mom that she's invited but her husband is not, but that's just me.

          This totally creeps me out and I'll be keeping you in my thoughts. Let us know how we can help.

                  Thanks to you all. My sister and I just did the check and it was long, he has been in and out of jail since 1992 and then the record trails of (too old or something)

                  Our younger sisters is all sunshine and angels about the whole thing so it is just me and my older sister. I did email her asking her to reconsider the date and let Chris and I have our date and then we can all spend time helping her get set. This will give her time to think about it. I would have preferred to talk to her but she works odd hours. I will let you know what she says.
