Family Not Supportive of Baby on the Way

Group Therapy: Family Not Supportive of Baby on the Way

This question is an excerpt from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

My family is being completely unsupportive. Mind you, I am 30 years old and engaged to be married to a great guy (that they all LOVE). My grandmother and mother are so upset that I am pregnant and not married, that my grandmother has basically called me a slut and told me if we don't marry before baby, the baby will be considered a bastard. I'm so hurt and upset about all of this, and don't understand how they can't be this inconsiderate. They are also mad that we didn't tell them when I first found out I was pregnant, like we were lying to them (we waited until I was 12 weeks to tell anyone, to make sure I didn't have a miscarriage).

I just don't even want to talk to them, and can't believe this is happening.  I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN CLOSE WITH MY FAMILY, and this just dumbfounds me, considering I have cousins, etc that have children out of wedlock and though they were not happy about it, they did support them. I feel like I'm in a better position financially, professionally, and relationship wise than my 18-year-old cousin was. What do I do? I'm at the point that I just want to cut them out of my life. HELP!!!
