@isabelle_86:  Yeah, I think you’re right, boundaries are important. 

I think if your mom wants to apologize and wants to be in your life, let her in. Obviously I don’t know your history with your mom. But I would regret it if I kept my mom out of my life even when she tried to apologize. Yes, you can absolutely set your boundaries however you want to. But I would be worried about regretting it if I just stopped talking to my mom for the rest of my life.

First I think your fi should apologize for breaking the law and giving your under age brother alcohol (I am assuming the drinking is 18). That is really inappropriate and I can see why she would be angry, although she handled it poorly.

Have you actually ltalked to her about why she doesn’t llike your fiance. Have the two of you been together long? it seems like there is a lot of backround we are missing, but it would have to be some thing pretty severe before i would recommend cutting her out of your and your daughter’s lives.

@isabelle_86:  This might sound bizarre because you are an adult, but you and your mom could go to family counseling together. It could help to have someone unbiased. It sounds like you’re not sure what to do.
