My MIL did not wig out; she was fairly sane about the whole thing. Can't bitch too much, since she married J's dad at 18. They told SIL's dad and he was just kind of like "Oh."

They're talking about getting hitched summer of '14. Would be before their junior year.

Every new ounce of information, I'm sure, hurts. It's part of the process, I suppose. Still sux.

So how do you think your ILs will do over the next year and a half leading up to the wedding? You think they will be cool about it or will there be drama?

Thanks. It feels like breaking up all over again.
I know it does. Maybe think about going somewhere...like Tahiti...with a bunch of girlfriends for a week or so. Just go do a bunch of fun stuff. And remember, what happens in Tahiti, stays in Tahiti.

Martinique. It's closer to her and its French as well.

Rough for you. Sorry, but you are right, it was necessary.

I'm sorry it hurts so much.

Are you trying to stay friends with him? Is it making things easier really?

True. Of course anywhere that has sun and I can get a drink with fresh fruit and an umbrella is ok by me.

There will be drama, fo sho. Already not expecting SIL's dad to show. J will walk her down the aisle. My MIL was a hot mess for our ceremony, and that her kid then was 32--I know her "baby" will be worse.

My SIL is terrible at decision making; I don't think she has any clue that she's going to have to spearhead wedding plans. I definitely expect drama in that department.

Yes, we've been talking all along as friends. I don't know how things will be with this new development. I want to be friends in the long run but I might have to step back for a little while. I'll take it day by day.

I can't sleep. This is worse than the day he moved away.

Ugh. I know that feeling. Like a low-grade-gonna-puke feeling that lasts all frickin' day. For days.
