“I told my parents I just want one day for Michael to be my partner and not Anna’s comfort person. They called me selfish and asked how I expected them to agree to something like this.”
“They told me Anna is disabled and may never experience a wedding of her own and while I have Michael for probably the rest of our lives she’ll have no one and that Michael and I can be a little more understanding to the reality of her life.”
In the end, her parents decided not to attend her wedding, and they also think she should not bring Michael to their house at all in the future since she’s picking a man over her own sister.
Her mom and dad then said Anna’s behavior is “normal” for a 21-year-old and they insisted Michael should stop making it a problem.
She offered to pay for someone to watch Anna so they could come, and she also said she could live-stream the wedding, but her parents declined all offers.
Her parents then got into an argument with her about not wanting to be Anna’s full-time caregiver when they pass away.
They then texted her a super long message that laid out the fact they will no longer speak to her unless she does “the right thing.”
She does feel terrible and now she’s wondering if she should not have asked for Anna not to come to her wedding.
