stepmom at wedding
I just attended my stepson's wedding two states away from home. We've never been very close in the six years that I've known him. I did contribute 1/3 of the money for the wedding gift. I, however, expected my husband to pay for the lodging and meals on this trip. My thought was that I wouldn't have made this trip if it hadn't been for HIS child's wedding. (When bouts and corsages were distributed, I didn't receive one and was told by my husband that it's not like I've been in the kids' lives since they were little.) Did I commit a major faux pas in not contributing? My husband feels that I did.
