Dear Annie: I have a wonderful husband and a problem that started when we married last year.
We had a destination wedding. My husband's stepfather paid for the immediate family to stay at a beautiful rental house. My brother's ex, “Martha,” surprised us by coming, and she brought her daughter, along with a friend and her 3-year-old. The next day, Martha and her friend had to check out of their hotel hours before the wedding and simply assumed they would hang around the rental house until then. This was not OK.
