My future father-in-law has just had two felonies added to his already existing record and is looking at 11-12 years in prison.
My fiancé and I have have been planning a wedding after the birth of our daughter. That was supposed to be in September of this year.
My future mother-in-law continues to try and convince my fiancé to postpone the wedding and even went as far as saying that we shouldn’t have any more children until her husband is out of prison.
I am sick thinking about waiting 11-12 more years to marry my fiance. We have been together for 7 years already. I do not want to postpone having more children. My daughter could be 12 by the time she sees him again, and I’m not waiting 12 more years to grow our family.
The venue has been booked, I have my dress, invitations have been sent, and I have family flying into town.
I don’t think I’m being selfish here, and I just don’t feel like we should be punished just because his father decided that being a criminal was more important than watching his first granddaughter grow up and watching his only son getting married. I just feel as though he should have been thinking of his family. My fiancé has a sister that is only 10, and she could be 22 by the time he’s out. Maybe she shouldn’t graduate, go to college or get her license so that her dad doesn’t miss it while he’s serving time for his 6th felony?
My fiancé is not having any of it and has had enough of his mother and her relationship with a man who he doesn’t even know. His own dad long since divorced his mom and is happy to attend the wedding. We took his advice and are absolutely planning to go ahead with the wedding and to have a child.
If his mom cannot accept this, she does not have to come to the wedding.
