My mom and dad have been married for about 25 years, they are both Catholic and married in the Church. But my parents do not have a very happy marriage; they just can’t seem to communicate. So I am preparing for marriage and have been talking to my grandmother (my mom’s mother) a lot lately about marriage. She keeps asking me if I’m nervous… and then goes to tell me how my mom was so nervous before she got married that she was crying and really not doing very well… so my grandmother told me that she gave her a tranquilizer to calm her down!! Now this completely shocked me and now I am left questioning if my mom really had full consent when she was getting married?? Should I be worried that my parents are really married? Also, I can’t believe everything my grandmother says, she is elderly and still has a sharp mind, but sometimes she says things that are completely wrong (for example… she is convinced my brother was born underwater, when in fact he was born in a hospital bed). So should I worry? Should I bring this up to my mom?
I also am afraid to bring it up to her; my mom has so many ill feelings towards her marriage and her wedding day.
