I'm just wondering if anyone else is having a problem with their family thinking they should wait or not get married. We have both been married before and have no kids. We were engaged only 10 months after my divorce and we plan to be married in about 6-9 months. I met my fiance in high school and we lost touch and reconnected right after my divorce. I was just looking up old high school friends because I was feeling kind of down, I wasn't looking to fall in love, but it happened. I always kind of thought he was the one for me back then and now 12 years later we just happen to be perfect for each other. I coun't be more sure I have the right one this time and I don't want to wait years to marry him and start a family. His family could not be more supportive and they are so happy for us. My family however is not so excited. I don't have a single person in my family that has not been divorced at least twice , so I don't really trust their advice at all. I just don't know if they should be invited to our ceremony if they are going to be so negative. We aren't having a big wedding of any sort, just a small ceremony (25 people max) and dinner at a nice restaurant, or maybe a back yard bbq type thing. I just don't want any type of negativity there for our wedding, but I don't want my family to be offended if we invite about 10 of his family members and only one or two of mine (leaving out my parents/stepparents, and all but one of my siblings). Anyone have a similar situation? If so how did you resolve it? Any advice would be appreciated!
