Interfaith wedding; fiance's family threatening not to come!!!!
My fiance comes from a deeply religious Christian family. My family is interfaith. My mother is Athiest, my step-father is Catholic, my father and his family are Christian, and my mother's father and his wife are Buddhist. I am Buddhist as well. My fiance's family is telling us that if we don't have a Christian ceremony, they will not be attending!!!! I agreed to have a Christian ceremony, but asked my fiance if we could incorperate some Buddhist elements. He told me no because his family would get up and walk out of the ceremony!!! I'm so upset about this!! My family is getting over the religion difference so we can have have our dream wedding... (keep in mind my Buddhist grandfather is also the ordained minister who is marrying us) If my family is willing to suck it up for 1 day, why can't his family do the same???? Any advice on dealing with this??
