She is psycho.  Was she drunk when she said all of this?  Condolences… steer wide around this one forever.

How nasty. She’ll regret it. She may never say so, but she will regret her behavior. She has just potentially left a bad taste in quite a few people’s mouths. You probably want to try to keep the damage she has done local, but things like this have a way of spilling over so be careful and prepared. Did you delete the comments on your FB?

holy moly!!

that’s craziness – sounds like you’re dealing with crazy in the best way – just leave it be. I wondered the same as FMIlady – was she drunk??

Yeah, totally awkward. Isn’t it weird when adults act completely rediculous? Grow up, lady! – I’m glad you got to get it off your chest! – Talk to FI and see if that changes your wedding plans. Do what you want and do what makes you happy – maybe FI can ask her if she even wants to be part of the wedding or be there at all? Geez. I dunno!

Keep up the good work though – you’re being the bigger person! – hah I thought it was nice you thought to call her and chat about wedding stuff and include her. – Maybe she thought you were tryng to hint for her to buy things for the wedding. Maybe thats part of why the money thing came up? Hard to say.

In the mean time, I’d save that crazy message. You never know what would happen in the future and might want to have that on hand.

Wait are our mother in laws related? Well future anyways. Mine is crazy too girl she has done soo many hurtful things and you learn to let go and maybe you wont be close to her but it is important to be able to have family christmas and a wedding where you can all talk. My fmil i dont even know where to start girl she has trashed my parents, she has trashed me, she broke us up before ive had to call the cops on her i mean it seriously is never ending. As long as he understands how his mother is it makes things ALOT easier. Mine didnt want to admit it at first but we are on the same level now and we know she has issues. When we got back together all of the sudden she was in the er everyday we find out she was having “panick attacks” now shes on anti depressants and shes half way normal but trust me you both will learn to interact with each other without ripping each others heads off. Good luck and ignore like 98 percent of the crap she says i know its not right and its hard but try and keep the peace be the bigger person

i am soooooo sorry you are dealing with this! and i have to admit – reading posts like this make me SO happy that my MIL is your basic “little old lady” who stays out of everyone’s business. (course we have had family drama, as everyone does…mainly DH’s sister… :p)

but my advice – take it for what it is – obviously talk with your FI about it – but ignore her. you are NOT marrying her but her child – who is an adult.

i hope you feel better soon!

You can’t really ignore this. As stressful as this is she has to realize that she can’t treat you or your family this way. That is just ridiculous!! My best friend went through something like this, not so much of the upfront confrontations lik eyou are having, but they would talk so much about her that it literally brought her to tears. Because you’re supposed to get a long like family right? Well in her situation, that was not the case. Luckily the husband is on her side and realizes what BOTH of his parents are doing. Sadly, they don’t get a long and eventually (right now they live in the same house) they’ll move out and the grand children won’t really know their grand parents because of their behavior. So my advice is take care of it right now, before it escalates to the point where you’re alienated by your In laws. HOp eit all goes well and just like ccranetobe said, share with us, we’ll get you super excited to share anything about your wedding!!
