Wedding from HELL! Would you be offended?? *Crazy Mom-Zilla*
My cousin is getting married in March 2013. My mom let me know about the wedding in November 2012. I told her I really didn't want to go because I don't see what the big deal is. When my husband and I married three years ago we only had one guest (my mom) and it was a small affair. I did invite family members, but the chapel was 8 hours away from them so realistically I knew they couldn't make it.
My mom has turned into a total monster about this wedding. In January she begged my younger sister and I to come. She even told my sister she'd pay for my sister's boyfriend and their kids to fly out to the wedding as we live 6 hours from our nearest relatives. I told my mom that we (my husband and I) are interested in attending and we'd pay our own way. My mom's immediate response was: "Why does he want to come?" in the rudest tone ever. Keep in mind our extended family has never met my husband, my sister's kids, or my sister's boyfriend.
To say the least I was offended and told my dad to let my mom know I'm not interested in coming especially if my husband isn't wanted. So today I get a call from my mom asking if I'm still coming. I told her point blank no because I don't want my husband who's never met my extended family to be treated like garbage. I also asked her if any of my aunts and uncles alienated their children for not coming to my wedding. My mom tried acting all bewildered saying my husband can come if she chooses that's not her business.
Would you be offended if your mom reacted that way to your SO or spouse attending a family event?
