Uh oh! DH is about to lose it.
He's been on the phone with his DD for hours tonight. She's unloaded a whole boat load on DH. Let's see if I can remember it all:
1. She's gone over budget on the wedding by nearly twice what DH agreed to pay. She doesn't even know who, or how much, she still owes exactly. She still owes for half of the wedding venue, half for the flowers, and half for the catering and cake that she's sure of. She can't explain where the money went that DH gave her to pay these expenses in full. Her only explanation has been, "I don't know! I spent a $100 here and $300 there, and before I knew it, it was all gone, and I was afraid to tell you until now!" She expected him to give her the money to cover it, but he's refused. She said, "I might as well call this wedding off if you won't pay for it." DH agree that it might be best if she did.
2. In all the preparations for the wedding, she missed her gynecology appointment last month and has been without birth control for 2 weeks. She's bloated and emotional. I certainly hope she's not pregnant!
3. She gave away most of her furniture so that they wouldn't have to move it because they were supposed to have closed on their new house today, but the finance company is requiring some additional financial info before finalizing the loan, and she didn't want to move some of the old furniture into her new house. However, they have no house to move into, so she's moving back in with bio-mom and future son-in-law is moving in with his brother until the closing.
4. The future son-in-law called DH because some of the furniture that he brought to the household is what she gave away and he's about to lose his mind too.
Is that it? I feel like I'm missing something, but I'll update later if it comes to mind and is worth mentioning.
I feel so sorry for DH. His blood pressure is through the roof, and he feels like everyone is laying all the responsibility in his lap. I'm, of course, no help, but I did let him rant to me without offering any opinion or advice. I just nodded and shook my head a lot.
