Ask Kate: Trouble with the in-laws

June 15, 2012

Kate Thompson has been offering heart-felt advice and sparklingly different wedding inspiration for ten years. She is married with two children, and often features in the national press. With her warm and caring nature and off-beat sense of humour, she'll answer every question with knowledgable insight and understanding to help and inspire or simply restore your peace of mind.



My husband-to-be is divorced. I am dreading having his family at the wedding because they’re still extremely loyal to his first wife. What shall I do?


Try not to let this spoil your happy day. If your fiance’s parents are coming to celebrate your wedding day then they should do just that and there should be no mention of his first wife. This is your day and your fiance’s parents will become a part of your family. It is their choice to keep in touch with his ex wife and it should not mean they disapprove of you if they do so. Try not to compare yourself with her. He chose you! I am sure that in time they will come to love you almost as much as your fiance does.
