My parents are driving me up the friggin' wall. Apparently my FI and I being engaged doesn't mean anything. Apparently we're still considered two seperate entities. When they asked us to come down after Christmas and said they'd pay for it, I assumed they meant that they'd pay for both of us to take a bus.
Apparently I was wrong. Apparently my FI has to pay them back for his portion of the ticket. Wth? Whenever FI's parents help us out, they help US out, not just FI because they acknowledge that we are together, we're living together, we share expenses, etc. I know when I tell my FI this it's gonna tick him off and make him not want to go down there. He didn't even want to go there in the first place because they refused to even acknowledge the engagement in the first place. I don't know, sometimes my family really brings my pot to a boil. I mean, why offer to pay and then be like "Oh, well your fiance has to pay for his half of the ticket"? It makes my FI feel like a jerk because they'll pay for me, but not him even though his parents help us out way more then mine have [i.e. his parents gave me a spare car they had because mine died on me and we need two cars to be able to get to work].
I don't know, am I wrong about feeling like this? I feel like if they want to see me, then they need to accept that I have a fiance now, that this is serious and we're getting married. I already went down there a couple weeks ago by myself. They know we're struggling as it is, which is why we haven't been able to buy tickets to go see either of our families, so why are they gonna offer to buy tickets and then turn around and say he has to pay for his? I know I'm probably gonna get some crap for this, but I just feel like this is just one more thing that my parents are doing to say "Hey, we don't acknowledge/approve of your relationship."
