Nobody wants to write thank-you notes.
It's just something we all agreed to torture ourselves with, probably centuries ago. And for anyone who doesn't write thank-you notes, a lifetime of shame awaits.
One bride is trying to get out of thank-you duty after learning that her in-laws said some not-nice things about her at the wedding. Now she's asking the internet: is it okay to forego thank-yous?
So my partner (28M) and I (25F) recently got married. We had a wonderful wedding that we paid for ourselves (with some help as wedding presents from family). I've admittedly had problems with my in-laws for a while. They've called me some really nasty names and blamed me for moving my partner and I out of state.
I've found out that the day of our wedding my in-laws again said some really nasty things about my relationship with my partner. Including suggesting we get an annulment because "it won't last long enough". During our wedding we paid for the rooms and food for our weekend wedding because we knew family was coming from out of state.
