FMIL not interested! 😡
I hope I don't sound like an idiot but...
It really frustrates me that my FMIL and my fiancé's sister (her daughter) are really not interested in our wedding?! (We get married in 9 months)
We got engaged nearly a year ago but a couple of months before we got engaged, his sister announced she was pregnant (now I don't want to sound judgmental but she got pregnant with an older man she had known for 8 weeks ..and she also planned the pregnancy by the way) And the only interest his family have is the baby.
It's lovely there's now a baby in the family, the first grandchild blah blah ..but all I'm asking is for them to show a little bit of interest in our wedding.
Myself and my H2B are quite traditional in the sense we want to get married before we have children, we also both have good careers, we've just brought a lovely home (which we scrimped and saved for) and I've never had help off my parents (nor has he) ...and yet his parents have spent thousands of pounds on baby stuff for her because she doesn't work, brought her a car and yet they are so immensely proud of her (they say this everyday) because she had a baby.
Every time we visit all they talk about is how many poo's the baby has done today, etc. I'm classed as an under achiever in his family because we have not yet had a baby (a question his mum is ALWAYS asking us!!)
My career means that I have to travel all around the world, stay in some amazing countries and in 5* hotels which my parents (and family friends) are really proud of and always asking me questions about where I'm flying to next etc,.. But again this is no interest to his family.
I always try and sound interested in their lives and ask questions (even though I'm not really interested at least I pretend!) they don't even pretend to be interested in mine/ours.
When I mention the wedding they just change the subject back to talking about the baby.
I even casually asked his mum if she had any ideas for her outfit and she just said 'I want to wear black'
His parents are not married so maybe this is a subject they're just not interested in?
I've mentioned it to by H2B and he says 'that's just the way they are'
Any advice would be great. Thanks
