Dealing with parents...ugh :(
This is the 2nd marriage for both FI and myself. Neither of us has kids and we are 30 and 32. Our friends, his parents, and most of our family is extremely supportive. The problem is my parents! My dad questioned if I should wear a white dress, and now my mom is not wanting us to register or have an engagement party or showers (when we have friends and other family members wanting to throw these for us and we don't live together so there are things we'll need when we combine households). I just feel like they are taking all the joy and fun out of this. I also want them to understand that etiquette for this sort of thing has changed. Anybody have a good book or article about this I can send to them?
