I am so sick of me and DH being ignored in his family
It's like anytime something happens to us, something happens with his parents or one of his siblings and seems to make us irrelevant.
A week before our wedding, BIL's wife left him. While I understand he needed his family, DH's parents dropped everything for the wedding. MIL didn't come to my bridal shower without even telling me and she was supposed to do the games, my sister had to throw stuff together last minute. Then the day before the rehearsal dinner, she told me they weren't throwing it (as they had offered to) and they weren't going to coming so we had to do a second rehearsal the morning of the wedding and my mom had to throw together something for the rehearsal dinner.
BIL understandable didn't come to the wedding but everyone did nothing but talk about him at the wedding and half of DH's family left early because they were all worried about BIL, who as it turns out, was out with friends.
When we got pregnant with our first child, SIL was pregnant with her first too but miscarried and from then on out, we weren't invited to anything, no one's birthdays, not Thanksgiving, not Christmas because seeing me pregnant would upset SIL. Now, I am due any day now and no one on DH's side is even excited about the baby or came to my shower or anything because apparently, SIL (the one who miscarried at the beginning of my pregnancy) can't have a child
The worst part is seeing how this upsets DH, he really wants his family to be interseted in our lives but it just seems like someone else is always more important then us.
