Mother of the Bride and ex's 2nd family
My daughter is getting married next year, and her half-sisters are to be bridesmaids. Problem is, my ex and his girlfriend barely acknowledge me, so the worries about the whole thing are distressing me, which in turn distresses my daughter. I don't have a problem with the half-sisters being bridesmaids except for the fact that the mother just cannot be civil to me. I phoned her a couple of weeks back to try to smooth things over, but she just resorted to being offensive to me. She's even implicating that I should keep out of the way for some of the arrangements as apparently, the wedding arrangements are none of my business! (Yes, in case you are wondering, I did bring my daughter up, and we are very close.) I don't want this to be a battle as it is going to cause my daughter (and me) extra stress for what should be the best day of her life.
