Y'all, I tried to keep my judgy-pants at bay, but it's been hard.
was a lot of drama with BIL and his now-XW/recent fiancee. Married
when XW/F was still in high school (oh, Arkansas), popped out three
kids, BIL was serially screwing around and they eventually divorced.
Then there was that odd chapter when he briefly married a woman old
enough to be his mother (truly, her oldest child was older than him, her
grandkids were his kids' age). If they had been happy, then great,
what do I care, but that (of course) led to more drama, he was cheating
on Wife #2 with XW, it was just a huge cluster with the kids in the
middle. (Which is about the point at which Mr. Heff and I really turned
up the judging.)
Yesterday, we got a FB invite to Wife #1
& BIL's wedding in December. Man, I hope things turn out better
this time around. I hope they are both older and wiser. I've heard
stories of things like this working out much better the second time
around, and I hope they are in that camp. (However, BIL's doucheyness
seems to be a constant, so we'll see.)
However, I did tell DH we should probably hold off awhile on booking tickets, just in case.
