OT-wtf family! ? Can I disengage from all of you?
So, my little brother is getting married, for the second time, in the last 3 years. He courted, proposed to and married one woman, she decided she wanted to be a lesbian, and apparently a bulimic drug addict who also accused him of abuse, they got a divorce. About 6 months later he is engaged to another woman who looks almost the same as wife #1, with shorter hair.
Lets go back to the first wedding. In addition to having all of my 4 younger brothers as groomsmen, my step sister was a bridesmaid, and my daughter was a flower girl. I, however, was left out of the wedding party completely. It was hurtful, and obvious, and I don't know why. His ex wife also alienated most of the family, so when things got bad, my brother came crawling back, wanting support and legal advice, which I freely gave and hoped our relationship might turn around. Shortly after, he gets engaged again. A few days later my step sister posts on her Facebook page about how honored and excited she was to be part of the wedding (bridesmaid again). This is the same sister who, when she got remarried, didn't even tell me. Just one day I got a friend request from a girl with my sisters first name and her now husbands last name, I accepted and then saw her wedding photos, which included my parents, his parents, her best friend and husband, my little brother, and the lesbian
. I also had to sit through my sister bitching about how she can't afford the bridesmaid dress BOTH times, and complaining about going to the salon to get hair and make up done.
So fast forward to to now, 2 days before the wedding shower. My sister is freaking out because the maid of honor dropped the ball planning the wedding shower, there is no food or anything. She asks me if it would be tacky to have it be potluck, and trying to now involve me in planning the shower. Uh nope. Go consult the board you created for it on Pinterest, since no one wants me involved in anything.
