I have a wonderful and beautiful 7 months old baby girl. For the past couple of months I have felt like I have missed out on some thing in life like Baby Showers and Wedding Party type stuff when I was pregnant and when I got married. I am happy with my daughter and my marriage...
When I was pregnant my husband's family didn't do anything for me or my daughter, no baby shower, no baby gift, no congratulations. We weren't married till two days before I gave birth due to waiting on the state to grant him his divorce.
When we got married, it was a quick marriage because I due any moment at the time before I was going to give birth. We had planned to get married at the beginning of 2009 or atleast by summer but couldn't due to the state didn't grant him his divorce till Aug. So we didn't actually have a wedding just went to the court house.
Now, I feel like I missed out on both events.. I had one baby shower from my family before we even found out what we were having and nothing at all from his family. We haven't done anything about a wedding or a wedding party and its not looking like we are going to due to the fact that his family has a bunch of weddings already going on this year.
His first marriage was a full wedding, dress, cake, party, guest, friends, family everything.. I told him that and he feels that because that marriage failed that it was that big of a deal.. His family also threw a big baby shower for his ex wife and they got lots of gifts and everything..
I have told my husband how i felt about it and now he is saying that I am just jealous.. This is my first and what seems like my last child and this is my first and I don't plan on a divorce..
Do you think I am jealous??
