New here! Lack of support from family. Please help.
Hi, I'm recently engaged to my best friend and this will both our second marriages. He is divorced and I am widowed. Neither of us have any children.
We don't really have a lot of support in this. Most don't approve of us having an actual wedding. Both of our parents suggest we go the courthouse because this is our second marriages. They think it is "stupid and wasteful" for us to have a wedding ceremony with guests. It's very hard to have so little support in planning such a big and happy part of our lives. The other issue that everyone wants to talk about is our 11 year age difference. For those of you having little support, how are you dealing with it?
