Hi, I'm looking for some advice I think.
Me and my partner have been engaged for a little over a year and our wedding is in 6 months (April 2024). My fiancé's mum got diagnosed with pancreatic cancer about 4 months ago and whilst the outlook didn't look good, there was some hope with chemo. Fast forward and she was too unwell for chemo in the end and is now moving into the last stages.
I'm really struggling with how to support him and his family, knowing that she isn't going to be at our wedding. My fiancé doesn't want to change anything and neither does his mum. But I don't know how to keep pretending everything's fine when its not. We're finalising a lot of details at the moment which would normally be a happy and exciting time but now it just feels sad and whenever we sit down to talk about things I just know he's finding it really tough even though he doesn't say anything.
I guess I just feel guilty about carrying on with planning it even though I know its not my fault and its what everyone says they want and I'm struggling with how to help him come to terms with it.
