Help torn between my families
Answered 4 months ago
I live in a small town just outside of Bathurst…My sister is getting married next week in Sydney and my husband does not want to go with ur kids aged 8 4 and 2 the eldest is single vaxxed obviously the youngest are not
My hubby is also immune suppressed
If I don’t go my mum and my sister will be really upset if I go my hubby and his family will be upset
Have an answer?
I say this because too many people are living in fear because thats the narrative given. It can be deadly for some however most die with covid NOT from covid.
Would your partners family skip a wedding for you, if you required it? Would they skip a event because you didn't want them to go? Would your husband skip his friends wedding or siblings wedding? If not, then how can they demand you skip a family members wedding, when they wouldn't do the same for you?
You deserve to visit with family or friends, without having abuse or silent treatment or harrassment and manipulation used against you.
If you want yo go I say go alone, stay with family after the wedding for 5 days, then take a rapid test.
I had symptoms 2 days after 2 hours max exposure.
So 5 days is plenty of time to work out if you have symptoms and to take a test.
If your husbands family cant support you being there for family, then they arent a good family are they. Its very selfish.
But ultimately your decision
You do what is right for you
COVID will be here forever - no changing that - so can you realistically just stay in your small town and never see your family ever again?
I'd see if you can get to the wedding and stay with your mum a couple of nights, then take a rapid test. If you are clear, head home knowing you are safe and if you are positive, sit it out without risking passing it to your immune suppressed husband.
