I need to rant!!!!
I'm so frustrated and heart broken. Out of the 40-50 plus people we've invited on Allen's side, only eight are coming. Yes, eight. You would think that with the absence of his deceased father, his relatives would make an extra effort to attend? No? Does that NOT make any sense?! I mean it's difficult as it is to have his mother say that she's not attending= NO PARENTS on his side.. and now, NONE of his 50+ relatives are even making an effort to come. PATHETIC.
YOU ARE PATHETIC!!!
Did I mention that Allen is the eldest and first son on his extended families side to get married? I mean the entire situation is flipping ridiculous.
I'm so heated. The ONLY family member attending is his younger brother. WOW. I'm not a bitter person and I absolutely believe in forgiveness, but this?! This is just... unforgivable. They're all cut off. EVERY SINGLE one of them. ESPECIALLY his other sibling. She's nonexistent to me and my future family.
Ok, to make matters worst, aside from his four groomsmen, only four others are attending. THIS IS NOT NORMAL RIGHT?! I mean, honestly?! Allen is the most amazing and loyal friend you can ask for. He's been in so many weddings himself as a groomsmen and half the people that he was a groomsmen for, aren't even coming. Really?!
With me feeling this way, I can only imagine how Allen truly feels. I'm trying not to explode in front of him and trying to comfort him but I'm so fired up inside. I won't forget this. They've burned a bridge.
