My fiance and I have a baby together. Our baby is 6 1/2 months old and we just got engaged on V-Day. My fiance's family is really religious and conservative. We only see them on holidays and birthdays for the most part. My FH occasionally works for his godfather, but that's about it. Anyways...they always try to push their beliefs on EJ and it drives him crazy. He knew that they'd be all over him when they found out I was pregnant so we waited until I was about 4 or 5 months along. His godfather was so polite and nice on the phone about it(I suspect because he didn't know if I was listening. They never talk about the situation with me) and then a few days later when EJ was working for him he told EJ how he really felt...either get married or put the baby up for adoption. So obviously that made both of us mad 1. because it's our life. 2.marriage has always been in the plan. Then they told us we couldn't come to family stuff until we were married so the younger kids could be "protected". Once we had our son they SLOWLY warmed up. We were "allowed" to come to family stuff and all that. They got us all xmas gifts and us them. Though I found out later godfather asked EJ to tell me if I needed to nurse I needed to go to another room. 1. I'm doing what's best for my baby 2. I always use a cover and 3. I wouldn't want to nurse in front of them anyways! OK, now fast forward to the present...EJ posted on his FB that he proposed and I said yes. Of course everyone was congratulating us and all that. WELL EJ's godfather posted this: "Congratulations. Collin deserves it for sure." WTH. Why can't you just say congrats??? Not only was that rude, but our other friends and family saw that. And you've made it perfectly clear how you feel about our situation. Was that really necessary??? What happened to if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all?!
Am I overreacting or would you be mad too? I'm not going to say anything. I never do, It's not worth it. But geeeez!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
