  •  really difficult topic for most families, given (6+ / 0-)

    that many families today are "blended families" of one sort or another.  For example, my daughter was adopted at birth and did not meet her birth mother until she was 25 (Which is a trainwreck in and of itself)
    My daughter's mother and my wife died one month before her wedding after a long and painful illness.  We decided to go ahead with the wedding but her birth mother issued an ultimatum of either she would be presented as the mother of the bride or she would not attend (no word on how my daughter was supposed to deal with her birth father, who was also alive at the time whom she had never met or her birth mother's husband).

    Therefore, her birth mother was not at her wedding and I understand the birth mother's take on the subject is that she was systematically excluded from her daughter's life.

    Just saying that in any sort of family dispute, there are 2 sides to every dispute.  However, I would hope in times of grief, both sides can put their differences aside and unite to mourn their loss and share their sorrow
