Addie Pray January 15, , 1: Addie Pray January 15, , 4: You know she is hitting refresh and reading and re-reading all these comments as much as I am — yet, no update with more info. Take the high road. Your husband loves his family and has a right to spend time with them with and without you.

Do you really want to go to the party or do you just want your husband to stay home? This could very well be a situation that calls for the lowest of all roads! Wendy not Wendy January 15, , Highly doubt it though. CatsMeow January 15, , 3: Looks like responded at the end of the letter! Ended up that after everyone turned out to be pissed both sides of family, many people bugging the bride and groom they caved and changed their minds…. Oh yeah, that letter does sound familiar.

My advice is a bit different. He should say no, even if the SIL has a totally valid reason for not inviting his wife. The point is the LW is his wife and that loyalty has to come first. No one should compromise their integrity or their sense of right or wrong for someone else. Not because the LW should be welcome — in your scenario, she understandably is not. But because the husband chose the LW, and chose to stay married to her. And, if your scenario is the case, he should demand that his wife get some serious counseling and mend the rifts she has torn in their family.

So if I disagree with my spouse my options are to support him or divorce him? It may just be a party or it may be about the relationship with his sister. Amber January 15, , Obviously there is a reason she did not invite the LW and the LW does not want to say what it is. TaraMonster January 15, , Did anyone else notice that the husband is traveling from Boston to Chicago to go to this birthday party?

But the husband is definitely in the wrong for choosing to go to this party without his wife. I would think this if the party was just across town, but this is halfway across the country! The wife is having to stay home while her husband basically goes on a vacation without her, which seems very wrong in this circumstance.

Brigitte January 15, , I have a wonderful husband, but I do not get along with his family. His family, his veto, he gets to chose. How I feel about their rejection is something I work on myself. Kill her with kindness!! Do not make him choose between his wife and his sister, it turns you from victim to villain.

In the end, your husband wants a relationship with his sibling, for better of worse. Now, this is my opinion because this is his sister.

Couples are a unit. My situation is sort of similar to yours, but not as drastic. My FSIL has never liked me, and has done whatever she could to undermine me and try to end our relationship. The difference is, I expect him to stand up for me with his family. They have made ridiculous requests of him like contributing to their bills when we have student loans and a house down payment to save up for , including using his vacation time to clean their attic and him to spend weekends taking care of his grandparents, who refuse to accept Medicaid nursing assistance and insist on family care only.

WAPS January 15, , 1: Those are things that families do for each other. My brother helped his in-laws with bills because they needed it, even though he is saving money for basic things, like a car and a house. I am using my vacation this year to help my sister move across the country for her new job. My mom is old enough for Medicare and she is having a big surgery soon, but why would we have her get nursing assistance when we could help her with the things she needs?

It sounds like you resent the time and effort that he spends on his family, and that is just really sad. Family tends to be able to see those things. Krissy January 15, , 3: This is completely cultural.

My family would never expect, or even request those types of things of me. Most people in families care about each other and want to help each other. I totally agree with Waps, and was thinking it myself. Lili January 15, , 6: It makes me sad to think that families are so fractured that asking for help is seen as ridiculous. I mean, we all have limits but short of a situation like that one letter about the sister getting pregnant by my ex husband type actions, my sister will always have a roof over her head as long as I have one to give.

Krissy January 15, , 8: While I would never let my family starve, I would also not expect that they give up their time to do things for me that I should be capable of dealing with myself ie. Some families are very dependent on each others and others encourage independence.

Those are things that SOME families do for each other, not all. In fact in my family this would be more than a ridiculous request unless it was for an emergency emergency, it would be an insult… we take care of each other, not enable each other to make bad decisions or fail to plan.

Steeze January 15, , And people who refuse to address issues like that? They tend to be a bit unhinged. Lynn January 15, , Sorry, but this letter gives me n-o-t-h-i-n-g. All I can do is make assumptions. Oh so hard to give advice without more information. And secondly I would ask them if this was one of those issues that was worth it. Maybe your in-laws are awful people who treat you like crap and your husband never does anything to defend you.

If that was the case however, I feel like you might have mentioned it. The lack of details are very telling in situations like this. To me all it shows his family is that they can still see him whenever they want even if they exclude his wife. They get the best of both worlds in that scenario. I guess my question is, is that the case, is it just the SIL who causes issues?

Does the rest of the family exclude her? Is it worth him not going and adding to this fight at this point? I think like Wendy said things need to be smoothed over between the two of them, but after the party. Why cause more issues before? And a potential fight with your husband? Or if this is a one time thing or happens all the time. But the husband has already decided to go, whether or not he should, and the LW is just going to have to deal with that in the best way she can, I guess.

I was thinking too more like what is going on between you and this SIL in why to though. And if this is a continual thing, then she does need to bring it up, with her husband and figure out a way to work through things.

The more I think about this letter the more questions I have! Gine January 15, , 1: This is what I was wondering as well! I was thinking the same thing! How do you invite someone to a family function without inviting their spouse?! Oldie January 15, , 1: Not true at all.

First she is not letting her husband go. Her husband has already decided to go over her objections. The family likely already knows this or will find out. LW is really left with two basic choices: But it sounds like husband is going regardless and also sounds like husband will not succeed in convincing his sister to invite LW.

Obviously, as some have surely suggested — it is rather rare to be so obviously excluded from something unless you truly deserve it. And from the pointed, clipped vagueness of the letter here, it is quite obvious to me that the LW knows damn well WHY she was excluded but has deliberately chosen NOT to tell us.

Not as rare as all that. Quite common when the family strongly objects to their family members choice of mate — wrong religion, wrong skin color, wrong socio-economic status, wrong political views, gay. The family hopes to drive a wedge, break up the marriage, and redirect their family member in a direction they deem more appropriate. None of the scenarios you suggest seem true here, however, — especially since the LW oh so conveniently failed to mention any of them…. Oldie January 15, , 4: Quite pathetic if you ask me.

The LW came across as snobbish, entitled and demanding. Amybelle January 15, , 1: Sorry, adults who make a big deal out of their birthday annoy me. GatorGirl January 15, , 1: They just made a whole movie about turning 40…. Addie Pray January 15, , 2: GatorGirl January 16, , 9: It was awesome because it was an excuse to get everyone together all at once, AND yes, a couple friends drove in from out of town.

It made me feel special. And I got carded. Fabelle January 15, , 2: Ehh actually, I agree with Amybelle for the most part. Your friends and family are all adults! Who the fuck do you think you are? Addie Pray January 15, , 3: Actually, I agree with Amybelle and Fabelle only to this extent: Is is super annoying when the adult birthday girl or boy expects people to do so much for their birthdays.

My favorite people are ones that do this: I will always go to that party. Well that just sounds like an annoying person, way different that normal people who just like birthdays!

Fabelle January 15, , 3: Ok, ok, we can be friends again. I agree with you about Those People. I just was thinking of my 30th and it was awesome having everyone in one place, many of them out of staters. In my defense, it was a surprise party. Amybelle January 15, , 4: Some people like to get together with their families to celebrate special occasions.

Kelly January 15, , 3: Was it the sil or someone else in the family? Especially for an adults birthday party. What is so wrong with wanting to have fun though, because that to me is all a birthday party is. Kim January 15, , 3: I think the Husband should NOT go to this party for his sister.

The person responsible for the invites did not invite her for a reason whether it is to cause strife in the marriage or trying to remove the drama LW may bring but in doing this they are causing drama in and of itself. I would not expect nor respect a decision if my brother chose to leave his wife home and travel for this party.

If I was the LW and my husband made the decision to go well that to me says a lot about the respect, and value he places on our relationship. MP January 16, , Or is that just me? They are very similar personalities. Strong opinions and quick tempers. This summer my sister invited me on a trip with her but did not invite my fiance.

So by that logic, your SIL has every right to invite whomever she wants. So let your husband go to the party, stop pitting him against his family, and stop basing the stability of your marraige on his willingness to dump his family for you.

SHE is his family now! In fact the only times things are explicit is if someone is NOT invited. So how was hubby invited? Was there a fancy invitation addressed just to him, or did sis call his cell and tell him to be available on her birthday weekend without making it clear the message was meant for the two of you?

Sue Jones January 15, , 8: And she immediately left and filed for divorce? Sometimes extended family is just evil. Or she insisted to her husband that she went to Chicago too? You Go Girl January 15, , 9: When a spouse is excluded from a family event, it may very well be due to poor behavior such as provoking an argument when drunk.

Family dysfunction could also be a factor here. My step-siblings hated my mother, and for 30 years excluded me from family events in spite of my efforts to develop relationships and get along. Readers from more normal families may have trouble fathoming the depth of the dysfunction in my family, and may assume that I must be at fault because only very serious issues would cause them to act in such a mean fashion.

In conclusion, I am saying that we do not have enough information to know why the LW was excluded or whether she needs to make amends for poor behavior.

The LW January 15, , 9: Wow — thanks so much for all the great comments! My SIL is a wonderful person. I love her and I love all my in-laws, crazy as that sounds.

But now, with this invitation, my feelings have been confirmed. I feel a bit like the rug — or at least a corner of the rug — has been pulled out from under me.

I feel like I got the punch: I love the idea of sending a gift and following up with a call to my SIL. Thanks again for all your input! This really has helped me think about the issue from different viewpoints. Was it a formal invitation through the mail addressed only to your husband? Could it possibly in any way be an oversight, or could she have assumed that you two would know you were also invited? Addie Pray January 15, , 9: How did she invite your husband, anyway?

Which might lead to mended fences, who knows? SevenEleven January 17, , 4: I think your SO should talk to his sibling and 1 make sure your not invited it may just be a misunderstanding and 2 if you are not invited, find out why. The LW January 15, , The invite came to my husband via text and it was then followed up with a phone call telling him the specifics date, other people attending, etc.

I feel like if anyone is going to say anything to her, it should be me. Hmmm… is it possible that they used to kick it together with mutual friends and she kind of just was hoping to reconnect and party — and hey what better way to do that than her upcoming bday? I was bored today. I think it all goes back to what Wendy said — have discussion s with your husband about the fact that this incident has shaken you to the core and caused you to doubt the foundation of your marriage.

Traci January 16, , 9: Fabelle January 16, , 9: Yeah, after reading the clarifications the LW wrote thanks, LW! LW, I think you should either flat out ask your husband what the f is going on or call your SIL and ask her what the f is going on.

I still think something about this is odd. I know that if I invited my brother to something, it would be assumed that his wife would be invited. MMcG January 16, , 3: I go back on what I wrote earlier, I think you should contact the SIL directly and express some honesty… I mean best case scenario it was a misunderstanding and your husband is a bit of a pushover, medium case is that your SIL is a nuts control freak and your husband is ok with that… worst case is that there is something else going on in Chicago.

Vathena January 17, , 1: It makes me wonder what else gets swept under the rug in the interest of maintaining a false harmony. Sue Jones January 15, , I have to say that something does sound a little fishy here…. Is he perhaps having an affair with someone there? Did you actually SEE the text? I might even call your SIL before the party to find out what is up — or to finalize flight arrangements as if you ARE going…then you can suss out whether your husband is not being truthful with you.

The fact that he is not supporting you here is a bit fishy. Shame on your husband!!!!! HmC January 16, , This is a short letter and how slighted you feel by the sister depends on the context of the snub… did you guys have a fight?

Have you never gotten along? Do you always invite her to similar events? I dunno, feel offended by that, perhaps. Making this so about your marriage is weird. Honestly the way you write about your marriage… to me that is so unappealing. You sound really co-dependant. Lark January 16, , 2: I could understand getting really pissed about this, both with the SIL and the husband. Not cool at all. No drunken rants or anything dramatic. This is an out of state party, and to only invite her brother…Yikes.

My advice would be for LW to calmly confront SIL and be prepared to perhaps not like what she hears…Maybe jot some notes down, and call her up.

Because this is just going to get worse when LW has kids, for future Holidays, etc. Better to nip this in the bud. Basically, people made their point and moved on. She was invited to family birthday parties, dinner, holidays, etc. Some people were kind of cold, but everyone was polite and made an effort to re-include her…My point is, I never understood alienating or refusing to invite the significant other of a relative when it comes to family events unless said person is physically or emotionally abusive or prone to huge, drunken, racist tirades.

Lark January 16, , 3: That said, I mean family events like major milestone birthday parties where people fly in out of state, big weddings not small courthouse weddings or weddings where you only want to invite something like 12 people , holiday parties, etc.
