I’m in a long distance relationship and we plan out our visits months ahead of time because we know what long weekends we will have to see each other.
My sister broke up with her boyfriend in August, was dating a new guy two weeks later, and 3 months later in November she was engaged to the new guy. They announced they would be married a year from then. Suddenly in December, they announced they would be getting married in 6 weeks. (Some background… this new boyfriend got her involved in Amway, a company known for its multilevel marketing aka a pyramid scheme.) We did our research and the company works more in your honor as a married couple. So our consensus – they are marrying such short notice because of their jobs BUT they are telling everyone it’s so soon because they want a small wedding with immediate family only. That being said, they live in Vegas and the majority of our immediate family lives in Connecticut. So their guest list consists of a number of distant friends and relatives that conveniently live closer. So basically, they are rushing their wedding, giving no thought or consideration to all their family that cannot make it. Her wedding also lands on the weekend that I was supposed to fly out to see my boyfriend, one of three visits over a 6 month period- there’s a chance I won’t see him that weekend anyway. I refuse to allow anyone pay for my $700 plane ticket to the wedding and my dad is pissed I declined his offer (he can’t afford it.)
So is it wrong of me to not attend her wedding being that I may be with my boyfriend, and it’s too costly for me to go? And she’s getting married under rushed circumstances making it a difficult situation to even make it there? Sorry, very biased, but someone tell me if I’m wrong.
