  • Go on with the planning, send them an invite. There is a good chance they will come after all the planning is said & done. They're just being assholes right now. Everyone will be phsyched for your wedding & they will feel like jerks because they are the only ones against it. They will get used to the concept within the year, I would not worry about your old fashioned grandparents. I betcha anything, they'll show up.

  • run run. You are young you don't need a man with that much baggage. i did the same thing. i was with a guy who was 10 years older with me and already had 2 kids. at 21 i had my son, he completely changed after my son was born..thats when all the fighting started. All he realliy wanted was a mother/baby sitter for the 2 kids he already had. Thats my story..i did love his kids but i wasnt gonna let him be ugly to me and keep me as his baby sitter. no way. This man is no dummy..he's got experience on you and he knows what he is doing..don't let him fool you
