I'm new here, but I'm not entirely sure where to go on from the point that I'm stuck at.
My fiance proposed in June. Our engagement got off to a rocky start, with his family not really understanding or accepting what being engaged really meant. His sister even told us she cried for several days after finding out because he did not tell her before he proposed. From the start its been hell. His sister's first sit down with my FI after the engagement news began with her telling him that we'll probably get divorced. His mother seemed alright at first, but has steadily gone downhill.
We live with his parents (I pay rent, he does not) and have always had a hard time with it to begin with, but its gotten significantly worse. We finally decided on a date, changing all wedding plans that I ever wanted to accommodate what his family wanted too. When we told them, his mother told us that we would no longer have a home if we chose to get married when we wanted to (this October). We're in graduate school, so we had no choice but to change our date and save to move out, but we cant afford it for another few months (if they'll even let us go then, they've stopped us from moving out before). She made such a huge argument out of this that we cancelled our engagement party and my family refuses to see her anymore. Since we live with her, she's since pretended that nothing ever happened and refuses to acknowledge that she was out of line.
Living with them is killing me, I don't know how to overcome my anger for the entire situation. Since the fight, we're stopped planning our wedding and no longer have anything to look forward to in regards to our engagement. She's effectively ruined the experience and is now part of our every day life.
I was so excited about marrying my fiance, but now I'm not so sure. Having these horribly selfish people in my life seems like a death wish. My fiance has a hard time standing up to his family, and we dont seem to have any allies within them. They've effectively made him chose between me or them and he has just been silent and straddling in the center.
