My son is getting married in 4 weeks time in America.
His dad and I divorced 3 years ago, very acrimoniously. I am 60, 61 in July. He left me for someone else and has left me in a terrible financial position.
We are both going to his wedding. We are both attending the wedding rehearsal dinner the night before his wedding (which is a big thing over there) and both going to the wedding the next day. For the sake of harmony (my daughter and grandchildren all live over there - she is married to an American too) I have said that I will sit at the same table as him at the reception.
No-one from England is going to his wedding apart from us. My ex husband has now arranged for a reception in England for my son and his wife (they fly to England for 2 weeks after the wedding). It will be his family who attend this. I've said that I'm not going to go to this as enough is enough I think.
However I think my son is now beginning to feel that I'm being unreasonable about this. What do you think?
