Aedan and Cheri went to visit their families at his parents house the day after their wedding to continue the celebrations with them since they hadn't been at the wedding. Aedan's mom ran out of the house as they walked up to greet him with a hug, "Congratulations."
Still in your surgical uniform I see, Lexie, couldn't dress up nicer for your son and his new wife?
His dad rushed out a minute later catching up quickly to hug Aedan as well "Congrats"
See, like this guy in the snazzy suit who looks like he dressed for the wedding. Okay maybe we need a middle ground.
Aedan's mom went off to find Cheri to get details and pictures from the wedding, while Aedan's dad stayed to talk to him.
"So the wedding went well, I assume?"
"Yeah, it was great. But all I care about is that she said 'I do' and that she was happy, so it was hard for it to go wrong."
"Just hang on to that wanting her to be happy thing, always keep her happy."
"Always do, always will. I have the best influence, of course, of what to do."
And after chatting with his dad for a couple minutes Aedan went inside to say hi to everybody else, while his parents stayed out to chat with Cheri. It turned out neither of her parents had shown up, proving why family wasn't invited to the wedding, as they were afraid the other might have shown up and didn't want to be near them. So Aedan's were doing what they had often done and were making sure that she knew she still had them and was a treasured part of their family.
Meanwhile, inside, Aedan's sister Andrea was also proving why they didn't invite family to the wedding as she was mocking him over... well, who even knows what, nobody really listens to her.
His sister Annabelle acted in much the same way a few minutes later, but his sister Alexa was much better and was bugging him for details about the wedding. He and Alexa hadn't always gotten along, but they were maturing and forgiving past differences.
Yes, I had an "A" thing going on when I was naming Aedan and his sisters, 5 kids, all "A" names, his other sister is April. Don't judge me XD.
Cheri's conversation with Aedan's parents had moved inside, though his mom had stepped out of the conversation as his dad and Cheri had gotten into a trivia contest that she had no interest in.
So she went to practice witchcraft, as one does. I think she cursed on of her kids... they probably deserved it.
But everybody was getting hungry so Aedan's dad went to cook them dinner, while Aedan and Cheri were getting flirty in the kitchen. So flirty, Andrea thought they needed to get a room.
Says the sim walking around in her underwear...
His dad burnt the food and nobody ate together. Not the best celebratory dinner for a marriage, but fitting of the Levine family anyway.
Aedan and Cheri were getting anxious to get going back to the hotel to be frisky newlyweds, so he hugged his mom goodbye (he had no idea where his dad had gone off too), and off they went.
But back at the hotel Cheri was in a whole different mood and by the time Aedan came out of the bathroom before climbing into bed with her she was curled up sobbing. He knew she was upset about her parents so he just laid beside her and held her close accepting that was the best he would get that night. "We'll pay them visits tomorrow."
"They don't want to see me, I don't want to see them."
"I'm sorry babe, but the offer still stands if you change your mind." He gave her a kiss on the shoulder and snuggled in closer and just let her cry it out.
