The Question Club
My 18 year old cousin is getting married next weekend, none of her family is invited...she's known the guy since October, and they are both in the Marines, stationed in different places. No one has ever met him, he's 19. She just sent out a long email about it's my life, blah blah blah, you're my family and you should support me, this family isn't perfect either, etc. etc.
The email says that she loves us all and hopes to hear from us. I do not support this wedding at all. I do want to write back. What do I say? Something like "yes, I heard your news, good luck?"
I kept my mouth shut when my sister married a moron, and I hate to not say anything.. but this is also my cousin, and not my sister.
ETA: this is my possible response: does it sound bitchy or horrible? (this will be talked about with my grandmother and then to my mother who will get shit for it if I sound "like a bitch"
I can't say that this isn't a surprise. It sounds like you know the work that will go into a marriage and you've mad a decision. I wish you both the best!
