Woman (UK) - - Ask -

QMy youngest daugh­ter got mar­ried in March. We’d booked a lovely ho­tel and had ev­ery­thing ar­ranged. Then her fi­ancé said he’d found a cheap deal in a lux­ury place in Spain, avail­able be­cause of coro­n­avirus fears. We ob­jected, but she stuck up for him, so we had to can­cel the ar­range­ments and book there. Well, guess what hap­pened – it was can­celled. We scrab­bled to­gether a wed­ding, but a lot of the guests were ei­ther fed up or self-iso­lat­ing, so we had an in­ti­mate wed­ding. It cost us a lot less and our new son-in-law re­alised this. He now says since we saved money we should add it to the gen­er­ous gift we have given them. We said no and now they are threat­en­ing to stop see­ing us.

ATell your daugh­ter you love her. Tell her firmly and calmly that, what­ever hap­pens, your door is al­ways open to her. And then tell her you have no in­ten­tion of spend­ing any more of your sav­ings. You funded her wed­ding and gave a gen­er­ous gift. The fact the wed­ding cost less was a for­tu­nate out­come of a sham­bles in­sti­gated by her hus­band and it could have ac­tu­ally cost you more. His de­mand is barefaced cheek. Some­day she will see that. Sadly, she may come to re­gret back­ing him up.

Your daugh­ter may re­gret her hus­band’s cheeky de­mand
