I'm trying to step back and realize she is also going through change...retirement, her youngest child getting married, getting a daughter in law and meeting my whole family...I just wish she would step back and realize that things are changing for us too and that her way isn't necessarily right. Her and I come from VERY VERY different backgrounds-I was born in Poland grew up in Germany moved several times due to my dad working for the government and plan on spending the rest of my life traveling. And she on the other hand has never moved from small town NC and the only time she has left the country was to come visit us in Canada and the next time will be our wedding. So I realize in some areas we will just NEVER see eye to eye.
I think my FI should definitely grow a little back bone and talk to her about some of their issues ESPECIALLY those with his older brother. I know that is the cause of a lot of sorrow for him and in the short run it may make things awkward but I'm a firm believer of putting things on the table and dealing with them. I understand him not wanting to "ruffle any feathers" or upsetting his parents but at the same time I don't believe they should be upsetting us either...we are all adults and I just think this can be better handled than what the situation has become.
I'm so grateful to have a place to talk about this. Thanks for the words of encouragment and support...it's really helped a lot to know I'm not alone!
