hi girls!

still figuring out how this new format works...but i have a very important question!

my h's cousin who lives in hongkong, just got married. they're having a "local" reception in california (where all of h's family is). him and his then-fiancee came to our wedding 3 months ago.

h doesn't really know him because he's mostly-always lived in HK. as for the wife...i'm not really fond of...(she borrowed my hair dryer the night before my wedding and never gave it back to me..i had to borrow one at 3am to dry my hair so i could go to sleep......ugh.) but all million of my h's family will be there. we found cheap plane tickets..oh, and the reception is on superbowl. 4th quarter (6pm).

would you go?

    Ahhhh!!!  I see a ghost!!  Surprised

    I say no.  Not that I'm a superbowl fan, but seriously, who would borrow the brides's hairdryer the night before her wedding and not give it back???  No, just kidding (kind of) I say no because you clearly aren't that close to him, you obviously don't like the wife, and if you or FI is a big football fan, no need to miss the superbowl for it.  JMO.

    If you can skip it without causing a huge amount of drama? I wouldn't go.

    I agree with PP. If it won't cause drama, don't go. The girl doesn't seem very considerate.

    If you guys need a weekend away.. go. :)

    Besides that, how many people can just hop on a plane to go to Hong Kong? I would say just the long distance in itself should excuse you. :)

    If you need another vote, no way would I go and I certainly could get FI to go.

    I wouldn't spend the money on that if I didn't really like someone and my FI didn't know them.

    Stay and chill and watch Superbowl you'll def have more fun.

    Nice to have you back to the board!

    I agree that if you can skip it, do. If it is going to cause drama and you can afford it, then go.

    Nice to see you again! I think you already know the answer to your question. And from what i've heard from your post, you don't like the FI, and your DH isn't close w/ his cousin. Unless you want a fun weekend away w/ the reception as a pit stop, then go for it. Otherwise, I don't think they'll be heartbroken, and neither will you.
    Stick around here will ya!! We need our Mod!!! Wink
