Letter to FBIL

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I'm a little confused about why his entire extended family needs to write him a letter for a church retreat. What is the purpose? And if people are supposed to be giving you advice or encouragement...shouldn't they be the people you actually spend your time with, who know what's going on in your life? I don't get it. . .

 

What I DO get, however, is Maria's delightful response!! Omg...totally LMAO when I read that!! "How 'bout that Psalm 69"?!??! Like "how bout those yankees" or something...TOO FUNNY!

 

If it makes any of you guys feel any better about being bombarded w/ religion/religious beliefs. . .I very nearly cancelled my wedding because my absurdly religious conservative parents threw a bitch fit about me inviting my cousin, Jen and her girlfriend to the wedding. They said that if they were there (in all their sinning glory - my own sarcastic words) not only would my parents not come...but they would not contribute to the wedding at all. Which sucked because they had given me 8k for it when we first started planning. I flipped out, told them to take their damn money and not plan on attending my wedding since they couldn't manage an evening among "the sinners". (massive irony here...David and I were living together at the time - also VERY against their rules. yet they were still willing to pay for the wedding etc.) I didn't talk to my parents for at least 2 months. Everything we were planning came to a screeching halt as David and I tried to figure out what we needed to do. The minister who preformed our ceremony & did our pre-marital counseling (who also happens to be their pastor) ended up talking to them for me. He thought they were being pretty extreme and actually sat them down and told them that. After they had some meetings w/ him and David and I met w/ him a few times...they finally came to us and apologized for everything and gave me full control of the wedding...handed over the money -as a gift this time- and didn't say another word during the entire process. It took me a long time to get over all that. I'm SO not supportive of forcing your beliefs on people like that.

 

Sorry..that was a pretty brutal hijack Maria...It's actually kind of nice to get all that off my chest though! I SO wish I'd had you girls around when I was planning my wedding!!!

I actually wondered about that myself! I thought maybe it's like the military---- they "break" you so they can "mold" you into what they want/need. It's so much easier to complete the brain-washing at that point! hehehehe

That's the great thing--- he "gets" me and has the exact same sense of humor that I do (only he keeps it coming all day long, every day!). :)

He cracked up when I sent the letter to him at work...


But, alas---- he killed the idea of me actually sending the email.

(So instead I sent it to every *other* member of his family, so the Catholics could get a good chuckle!) hehehehe...

    • 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?
