I need some real advice from people that have dealth with this issue themselves. My soon to be MIL has pretty much just excluded both myself and my Fiancee from all of their family functions because we are getting married. Instead they are inviting his ex wife!!! She has also pretty much just out right said, to not include her or his father in the wedding. We are planning a destination wedding for next year with my family and ofcourse I would love to have his family there, to support him. Apparently, this is not going to happen. He has tried speaking with them, but no improvement in their despicable behavior. The BIG PROBLEM, here is that they live in the basement of his house, where will soon be living. HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS???? I have never had to deal with this kind of behavior from a person and don't even know how to react to them??? I get more upset than my fiancee does about the entire issue? I know I should just focus on the two of us and forget them, but family is very close and I cannot believe that his family would do this? Any advice would be great. Should I try speaking with her directly???
