Am I right to feel hurt...and where do I go from here?
Dear Miss Manners,
My son's fiancee is having her bridal shower in 2 weeks, which is being hosted by family. As the mother of the groom, I had expected to be invited, but was not. The shower will be held in a town 5 hours drive from here, and perhaps they assumed I couldn't attend, but shouldn't I at least have been invited?
I am deeply wounded by this snub but I'm unsure if I should say anything to her, or to my son, or if I should let it go and move on. My fear is that I will still hold on to some of the bitterness and resentment, as much as I would like to let it go, and that it will taint our relationship going forward.
Where do I go from here?
