Short background, my ex in laws have no idea that their son cheated on me, they think it was a mutual split. I never told them otherwise because at the time of the A MIL was fighting cancer and I didn't want to burden her more, then as time passed I just didn't bother. Anyway, long story short they still treat me well.

So my ex nephew is getting married and he and his fiancÚ came down for a visit, he is also DS' godfather, so ex MIL invites DS and me to come down to see them.

The whole family was there, except EX. They all welcomed me, engaged me in conversation and were kind but I still felt awkward, especially when the new fiancÚ spoke bout her ex, his obvious to me infidelity and his relationship with their child. I wanted to tell her I understood, but I couldn't say anything. Then I started to feel like I was hiding a secret and really got uncomfortable. At time it felt like old times and I was family again, and then suddenly I was an outsider.

I realize most of this is I n my head but it still made me sad. Sad I have lost a family I love and have to be an outsider
