I am 42 years old and getting married in April. My parents had a fight with him about 3 yrs and still hold a grudge. We told them about our intentions and they said some very hurtful things. I havent spoken to them since because they hate him and there is nothing I can do to change that. What is your advice? Do I get on with my life and never talk to them again I dont have many other options.

Well, Minnie, the first thing to do, indeed, is to get on with your life. It was well said, that living well and happilly is the best revenge. As for "never talk to them again" ? Never is a long time, and any of you might change your minds at any time. J and Sean are right, too. Why not be the bigger person, and invite them to the wedding, explaining that however hurtful some arguments have been, you do love them and would like them to join you in celebratng your happiness, so long as they feel able to contribute to that happiness and to let their old grievance take a back seat.
