I doubt we will get any updates. If the wedding hasn't been called off them the brother and Louise are working things out and I would expect the details of that to be kept between the couple.

Darn - this was one that I wanted to find out what happened.

I suppose it may take a while for the OP to get back to us, if there is a delay in the wedding for Susan's brother & Louise to work through whether or not her distaste for his sister is a deal killer.

Or perhaps she found out that there is a genetic risk to her children of the same thing and Louise is having to decide if that is a deal killer......?

That made me suck air in very sharply.

The wedding isn't until November, if I remember the OP correctly - we might not get an update on the situation until then unless the wedding gets called off.

Also, if I was Susan's brother, I'd have changed her role in the wedding from being one of the bride's attendants to being one of the groom's attendants.  I feel like assigning the bride/groom attendant roles based on gender rather than which half of the couple you're closest to is a little outdated...

I don't remember if it was the OP or someone else who mentioned that there is a genetic component to something that causes more females than males to be born this way.  I don't know why Susan has half an arm (I'm assuming that she is way too young to be a Thalidomide [sp] baby) - but if it is genetic and not a developmental anomaly......well, I don't know what Louise's reaction would be to being told that one of her daughters could end up looking a lot like Aunt Susan.

I don't know what her reaction would be - but I'm guessing that it wouldn't be something she is thinking about it.

Hi folks,

Sorry for the delay, I just recently heard from Susan.

The wedding will go ahead as planned, however since Susan has two young children to keep track of, it would be easier for her not to be in the wedding party.  This is what Susan plans to tell anyone who asks, as Susan told Louise she would keep this "disgraceful incident*" between them.  There was someone sort of confrontation between them that I don't have details on, but Susan seems pleased with the outcome.

Susan did tell me that everyone has at least one really stupid moment in their lives, that hopefully this was Louise's, and she will let it drop provided nothing like this ever happens again.  She isn't going to hold it against her brother for marrying Louise.  They love each other and make each other happy.  And Susan loves her brother.  She really wants his weddding day to be happy and unclouded, and she's willing to do her part to make that happen.

*Actual phrase used when Susan spoke to Louise. 

PS-to answer recent queries, I don't think there is a genetic componant to Susan's arm.  Both her kids have all limbs and she wasn't particularly worried about it when she was pregnant with them.

Wow.

I'm going to be the first to say it: I actually feel that Dave is worse than Louise in this, unless Louise *grovelled* to Susan.  Anyone who told a family member of mine "oh sorry, I only want normal* looking people at my wedding, and you're not," I'd have to tell them "You can count me out, too."

I just want to say that Susan is really a class act!

Wow. Yeah, me too. I know if I had found out prior to a wedding that my betrothed was as nasty as Louise is being, I'd say to my fiance "Don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya."  I wouldn't marry someone who proved themselves to be this narrow minded.

My guess is that there was first a "confrontation" between Dave and Louise and that Louise then turned it around onto Susan.
