Question: Dear Luise: My son is getting married. He is only inviting my husband’s dad and one brother. This is my sons step dad. His dad died. He is having the wedding Memorial Day weekend and a lot of people have to travel and I told him it was a bad idea. He doesn’t care what I think. My husband had 4 brothers and very close nephews. Long and short of it we had a very big fight with both him and wife to be and now are not going to the wedding. It’s killing me. Oh and we also lent him 5200.00 so he can by an engagement ring. We also offered to pay for any guests he could not afford to pay for and offered to pay for flowers and DJ. I’m at a loss and feel like I have a hole in my heart. Help me. M.
Answer: Dear M.: Our kids get to pretend to be adults and then they get to make the rules. It can be excruciating.
Please come over to my Web-forum with your issue. The site was designed for those of us who need help navigating the choppy waters stirred up by our´ “adult” children (who have so much to learn.) You will find us at: www.WiseWomenUnite.com I hope to see you there. Blessings, Luise
