GFG#1 ( previously known as PC/GFG) is living with a GFG who has some strong points. Of course being a GFG there are some unacceptable bad points. I'm "really trying" to accept that this young woman is aok and I totally KNOW she wants to spend her life with GFG#1. It's hard for me because we have been blessed to have upper middle class mores and she is "country" etc.
Recently there was a wedding invitation where an old friend of GFG#1's who is marrying a hispanic girl who is much loved by her family. The invitation was issued originally to me and GFG#1. The groom (a former GFG, lol) loves me because I baked him a pie for his eighteenth birthday and had GFG#1 deliver it to him. Nobody in his family acknowledged his birthday...just me.
Anyway the "invite" came addressed to me and GFG #1. As you guys know I am not at 100% and really don't want to do anything that I don't thave to do. SO, GFG#1 "accepted" the invite to the wedding and receiption for him and his gf. This evening is the wedding/receiption and GFG#1 won't wear "good" clothes because his gf doesn't have any.
I know this is strange and likely not "appropriate" but the reception is as close to "top drawer" as you can get in our community and PC/GFG or GFG#1 is not wearing "appropriate" clothes because his gf does not own more than one dress. It's bothering me that my kid is going to a wedding reception at the "top" place in our city and is not "dressing up" because his BP gf can't. I don't know whether I should be proud or conflicted. Life is weird. DDD
