    My wife's sister is a massive bitch, I mean huge. She has always been a bitch to me, and always been a bitch to my wife every since she was in high school and the wife was in junior high.

    She doesn't work (outside the home) has 5 kids from 19 to 5, and my brother in law is a pretty good guy works IT stuff in Salt Lake, probably makes a lot of money.

    My wife has exactly one sister, she has never been to her house and rarely ever seen her but a few times since they both left California about 15 years ago.

    They feigned an attempt at meeting us in Europe when I was stationed there, but didn't want to stay with us only make us meet them 150 miles away in another country. Really cunty shit. My wife conned me into falling for it, and the result was us wrecking our car on the way to see them and me getting arrested.

    Anyway, their 19 year old kid is a nice kid. She cuts hair or something like that and is marrying another young kid who's dad owns a construction company.

    We are invited the 2 of the wedding parties but not the wedding (because we aren't of that religion, and that is fine). Were given a huge list of shit we had to provide, and told we had to do our own lodging, vehicles (we live 1000 miles away) and no one at any part can wear a mask (pictures). 350 at the wedding, 450 at one party and then 350 at the other.

    Half of the family is staying in Las Vegas for a few days on the way up, and the other half is coming from Phoenix area.

    They registered on Amazon and every gift they want is $500-1500.

    I told my wife to slip a dollar in one of those complimentary Christmas cards the elk foundation gave us and write the words "covid says fuck you".

    I had a team come through for work and one of the assholes had been to Vegas and had covid and had to go home. He actually attended a funeral and killed off a few more people (old fat people in Louisiana, of course covid is like a hand grenade in that situation). His fat ass recovered.

    Wife says I am not allowed to do that and is distraught over the fact that her only sister's oldest brat is getting married.

    You have the perfect excuse for 2021

    Just say due to the Delta variant outbreak, you don't feel safe traveling and will regrettably be unable to attend.

    Then just forget to send any wedding gifts, or if you must, send like a $50 amazon gift card.

    Nope...don't go, easy. Reference this thread if the SIL asks why? Or just tell her what you think? What could go wrong?

    Fuck them and that wedding. If you have to go, give them a $25 dollar Cabela's gift card. It will pay for the shitty dinner.

    My wife has two assholes for sons. They went to college and returned screaming Bernie Sanders fucktards. They married to leftist cunts and had three leftist kids. They are Fudd's who can only hunt with their wives approval and between them they own a 30-06, 22-250 and a shotty. One of those woke women implied I should be ashamed to have such an amazing well paying job and asked me why don't I donate my salary to others.

    I told her, "Others" can fucking apply for a job. I'll donate a box of ink pens if you like. Haven't been friends since.

    Just because someone fornicated and made a mistake doesn't mean you have to like them, help them or be in their company.

    Tell her you are worried about the Rona, tell her to be safe, and send her a Rona survival kit, a dozen cheap paper mask, and a 4 pak of the cheapest 2 ply toilet paper you can find.........

    If you like the kid, send them something inexpensive with a note wishing them the best. He's a contractor, if he's any good, he has plenty of money so they can get anything they want. What they can't buy, is the 'wishing you the best'.

    As for the SIL, stastically she's headed to divorce anyway. Wait until that happens and tell her to F OFF.

    Hey asshole who the fuck are you calling a generally pissy bunch of guys? I’m offended! Not really. My wife is in the wedding business and we hear stuff like this pretty frequently. Like the others have said, use the Rona as a valid excuse not to attend. After that you have options. If you send a cheap gift card, they will look down at you for being a cheap ass forever. The bitch will never forget it. Literally never. This could be good or bad. If you like the kids, send a nice gift. If you really want to fuck the bitch over. Don’t respond to the rsvp card until three days before the wedding, then announce that you are coming and demand premium seating near the wedding party since you are “family”. You have no idea the problems And stress this causes everyone involved with the wedding planning. All night just keep looking at the bitch and smile and raise your glass to her. As a side note, NEVER do this to friends or family that you actually care about.

    For the small few of $714,000.00, I’ll go in your place and reenact Indecent Proposal.

    Nah....don't listen to this guy. Not a real pro.

    Me and @Snipe260 will crash the wedding, ala "Wedding Crashers" style, for the cool sum of $259.87 plus travel expenses.
    Motorboating the brides mother, is a probability.

    You should of told her to donate her CUNT and her husbands asshole to others in need.

    You're not allowed to attend the ceremony because of religion? What religion are they? To me, it's bizarre that someone would invite you to a wedding party, but not allow you to attend the wedding itself because of religion. That would be an automatic No from me.

    Ah, I missed the SLC part, so Mormon then. Thanks for catching it. I didn’t know their weddings were members-only.
    There are ways to make it special for family and others (like a ring exchange). That doesn't happen inside temples.

    There are many times I am annoyed at members of my own church.

    You all have your feelings about different churches. That's fine. I don't care. There are those of us that try to do what our church teaches and help others be a better whatever they are whatever their beliefs.

    From someone who has a very similar relative:

    The 19 year old wasn’t a bitch to you, be happy for her and send them an Amazon gift card for what you can reasonably afford. Send a note with the gift card expressing regrets you & yours can’t be there due to COVID

    Then get on with your life.

    You became defensive even though no one said anything bad, weird.

    No one expressed any feelings about anything. SLC is like the Mormon Mecca, just a fact.
