I'm tired of my family chastising me because we just want to get married in the courthouse. My mom acts like I'm purposely doing this to spite her. In reality, we both don't see a purpose in doing it big (we're in college & supporting ourselves and our son so have VERY little money anyway).
Is there a way to make her realize that this isn't about her? It's about us! We can't get everyone into the courthouse either and we don't want to have an argument about who can and can't come. I want it to be the 2 of us and we'll probably have a couple of our friends that live nearby since we need 2 witnesses. Is that rude to do? My family is trying to make me feel horrible about this whole thing!
