My sister in law is almost 21. She is getting married this coming September 11th (which, in my military mind, is a faux pas in and of itself). My husband is getting deployed to Afghanistan in April of this coming year. Sister-in-law can't seem to get out of her own selfish bubble and understand that MARINES CANNOT JUST COME BACK FOR A WEDDING when they are deployed. Hell...they can't even come home for the birth of their own children! If they are lucky they can watch the birth via the internet! We suggested they move the wedding up or back if it's that important that her brother be there. She has declined. It's more important that she get married on the anniversary of 9/11. I am angry that she can't be bothered to understand that there is NO WAY my husband can be at the wedding. She's all bent out of shape that big brother won't even try to be there. And her mother...agrees with her! No voice of reason. Ugh! Am I wrong?Answer Question

And their mother agrees with her. She is 21. What are the chances that the marriage will last. He should tell her he will try to make her next wedding. Since this one is doomed, because she is still a child! Not because she is 21, but because she is acting like she is 12. Mother agrees. What an idiot!

He should tell her that if she insists on getting married on 9/11 that he wouldn't come even if he was home rather than in Afghanistan. That is just rude.
