Normally I don’t air my dirty laundry on blogs or social media, but man oh man I am in some desperate need of some advice from my lovely readers.
My kid sister is getting married two weeks from yesterday. She’s 8 years younger than me (just incidental) and, unlike me, she just can’t stand to be alone.
She dated her ex on again off again for five years and has a one-year-old with her ex. Both she and her ex are serial cheaters so their relationship ultimately dissolved and before they split she already had a rebound fling. Well, it’s her rebound fling she’s marrying and they will have only dated for like…3 or 4 months beforehand if I recall.
I’ve gone on record as not supporting her decision at all and I think she’s making a grave mistake as rebound flings never work out. As such, I’m conflicted as to whether or not to even go to the wedding. If I do, it’ll come across as supporting what is IMO a stupid decision. If I don’t, well, I look like the biggest asshole ever.
I’ve already got a PTO day the the day of the wedding and a hotel reserved for that night because the next day I’ll be attending the Firestone 600 (a car race in the Verizon IndyCar series – essentially the US/Canada equivalent of Formula One) in the town they’re getting married in. I just don’t know what to do.
What would you all do if you were in my place?
