She sounds horrible. You need to talk to her, you tell her if she coming to events at your house she needs to treat everyone with respect. She sounds like a difficult person because even people in your family have issues with her.

Don’t let her ruin your wedding experience, ps if I were you as soon as I could I move out to another place and put some distance between you. Keep her a distance during your wedding day, and if you know she going to storm off, let her know she won’t be allowed back in. It’s not ideal but I think if you don’t react to her bad behavior she not getting what she wants.

Granted I don’t know too much about agoraphobia, but perhaps between that and your grandmother it might be easier to have a private ceremony/elopement? It’s drama free and inexpensive. I’m not trying to shoot down the idea of a wedding if that’s what you really want but if you have anxiety issues and family drama, a quiet low key affair might be the way to go. Just a suggestion. I eloped myself and I was glad to have saved all that money (I had a baby very early into my marriage).

I would say that you tell her that if she can not be nice to your future in-laws, then she is no longer welcome at your house.  It may seem drastic, but she might be able to put it into better perspective.  I am a little confused as to why you are referring to her husband as her husband. I am guessing later marriage and not your grandfather? It is not right of her to act that way, but some people are just plain rude.

@JesC:  Ah, okay. That is understandable.  He sounds like a bad influence, maybe! Hope everything gets worked out!
