It is very shallow what they're doing but I can't blame his parents, they are very ancient. He is the last out of 7 children and his father is almost in his 80's.
Wow. There you have it! I am sorry you have to go through this... I think you are on the right track taking the high road. No regrets that way. Kill them with kindness, and deal with it head on. Thank God you dont live in the same town so its not a day to day thing.
And remember:you are in the right here. But considering your partners feelings even when unjustifies= what marriage is all about!

oh my gosh. I am so sorry.


That is wrong. Plain and simple. I absolutely can't understand it and I'm sure you are just beside yourself.


I agree with the others - stay strong and let your FI deal with his parents.


I hope you can get past this and enjoy planning your wedding :)

that's terrible!! I think that you have a positive attitude and eventually they will see it too. My parents' parents (on both sides) didn't like the fact that they were getting married either, and it wasn't until I was born that both sides put aside their bs and started acting like grown ups. If they see how much you love eachother they will come to respect your relationship too.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
