We got engaged on Nov. 24. and My fiance's family had thanksgiving the next day. So I assumed that it would be the time to announce our engagement. But no. I wanted to tell his grandma by myself ( we're really close ) and after I tell her she informs me that she doesn't want me to tell the rest of the family until after the holidays because it will just upset everyone.. ) : Idk what to say after that. But this is the hard part.
My fiance, Alex, is catholic. But once we get married we're going to attend a christian church ( I'm christian ). And my uncle who is a christian pastor is performing our ceremony. And his family is outraged about this! We moved our wedding to out of state and limited the guests to only our parents and siblings because it would devistate Alex if his only living grandparents refused to come to his wedding. Idk what to do. I didn't force anything on Alex but they're acting like I'm making him leave the catholic church. It was his choice!! And I keep telling them this and they won't listen.. And Alex just tells me to not worry what they say that we'll do this our way no matter what they say but I love his family and I don't want this to come between us.
