Finally Found The Dress

I should have known that the relationship with the in-laws was not going to be great, I would have been happy with tolerable.

Seeing as I had no friends in Texas yet I had very few choices when it came to choosing someone to go wedding dress shopping with me. I chose to take my fiancee with me; I know superstition says he should not have seen me in my dress before the wedding day. I do not believe in superstition. I wanted my one friend in Texas to come with me and he did.

I was not looking for a true wedding dress, we were having a small wedding and I was really looking just for a formal dress to wear. We went to a couple different stores and I could not decide until I saw the perfect dress but wait it was a traditional wedding dress. Did I really have a secret desire to have a real wedding dress? I do not think so but this dress was so pretty, it fit like it was made for me. It did not need any alterations at all.

When the in-laws heard that we chose a real wedding dress the fact that he came with me just did not sit well. By this time I have realized that no matter what I do the in-laws were not going to be happy with us getting married.

Now I am no detective but the signs were very obvious. Here are a few of them and you tell me if I jumped to the wrong conclusion:

My mother in law to be suggested a wedding date for us. It was the same day as his first
wedding.

My mother in law suggested his former mother in law do the flowers for our wedding.

I kept getting called his ex-wife’s name.

The clues were definitely there but I kept ignoring them. I was marrying my fiancee not his family, I did not care what they thought of me. I knew that I am a nice person, I am a great friend to have (if I do say so myself) and I loved my fiancee. Isn’t that all that should matter to his family? Should their only concern be that he was going to be happy?

About Tammy Woolard

My name is Tammy and I am 40 year old mother of 3 wonderful children who came to us through domestic adoption. Although we did not have any fertility issues we chose adoption because there are so many kids that did not ask to be born but truly want a family to love. We did research on adoption choices and decided on domestic adoption through CPS. You would be surprised the differences between each agency. The adoption process is nothing like you see in the movies. I am also a 5 year breast cancer survivor. When I was diagnosed my kids were 3, 5 and 7 I did so much research I may have driven my Dr. a little crazy but that is ok it is my body not his.
