His divorced parents
Hi I'm new and a friend told me to give these forums a go. So I need some advice and opinions in what to do..
Me and my other half are getting married next year in September. The venue is booked and the dress sorted but that is it. Anytime I try to bring something up about the wedding and try to plan something my other half shuts down and won't speak about it at all.
So the reason we are currently having issues with this is because 3 years ago his parents got divorced. They've both now met new people and engaged to new people. All good you would think. But no his father has not gotten over it clearly and is acting like a child saying if she stays in her corner and doesn't talk to me then its fine.
Obviously this has really stressed out my other half to the point where he is not looking forward to the day at all. And all because he is worried about what might happen and the atmosphere it will create.
So we've considered getting married abroad instead just us two or with 2 friends or just my parents. When I've spoke about it to close friebds and my parents they have said they wont be happy because they want to be there obviously and one of my closest friends who i thought would understsnd said we will regret it later. Which maybe we will but how can we go ahead with a wedding day that only one of us is excited for.
This is meant to be a partnership and I hate the idea of not having my close family and friends there on the day. I'm very family orientated person. But I want my other half to be happy and excited about the day. I want him to be stressed out because the colour of the cake is not the same shade as the flowers not because of the tension between his parents.
Just to show how his dad is being difficult his mum said if it was going to cause problems she won't be there. For her son's wedding she was going to sacrifice it so there would be no issues.
I don't know what to do and I need some opinions and advice anything anyone can give.
