| | Re: Parents and my wife
I think your parents need to grow up menatlly. They should respect your wife and treat her like a daughter.
Them blaming their "unhappiness" on you is total BS.
If my mother told me to tell my wife before my sisters wedding, I would have said, Maybe you and my wife can diet and exercise together seeing you also need to lose some weight mom. (for the record my parents were cool in that area)
But sure I had fights with my Step-father involving my wife, he was just a jerk, and I made it clear where I stood. Eventually he came around. Seem's like your dad is trying to.
Just basically tell them, you could ahve gained a Daughter, but now you are losing a son....no one to blame but themselves.
It's all Mental and them worrying about what others think. As soon as you stop worrying about what others think, the better off you are.
