The same exact thing happened to me this weekend and now both of our families hate eachother! My fiance and I decided not to register. My soon to be MIL registered us anyway! She called my mom and told her and my mom was so stunned because we all told her 100 times that we didn’t want to register that she just said “great.” The more she thought about it she decided that she needed to tell my fiance and I so that we could decide what steps to take. She told us, we flipped out and his mom turned it on my mom and I. How dare we not care, she wants her son to have nice things if I don’t want things, she was just doing it because she loves us, my mom is evil and ruined the surprise, blah, blah, blah! The point is that she went against our wishes whether it was a surprise or not. She gave my mom permission to delete the registry or change it. Do you think that would have gone over well? Of course not! She just wants control and she doesn’t like that she is the Queen Bee anymore!!! Now she and my soon to be FIL called up my fiance and asked him to postpone the wedding!!!! He told them no way so now I know that they really don’t like me! Oh well, I’m just going to keep torturing his mom because I am obviously driving her crazy by just being who I am and that is why her son loves me!

Oh no. This is not good. Why would she insist so much? I am glad your FI is sticking by you. Hopefully this will pass.

How is she blaming it on you and your mother? Has your fiance talked to her about this assumption that it is all your fault?

This is so weird to me. Why would someone else register for anyone but themselves. She doesn’t know what type dishes or towels or whatever you want.
She’ll get over it. Hang in there!

Wow – Im hoping this FMIL lives on the other side of the country so you dont have to deal with her in your home too often – what a bitch. Good luck.

This is really strange. I’ve never heard of this happening so I have no idea what to say! Why on earth would they be so upset over a registry to ask your FI postpone the wedding? Sounds like FMIL is a bit off her rocker. Sorry to hear. Just stick to your guns. She stepped on you and your FI’s toes by doing something you clearly did not want.

She registered for you? OH MY! That’s a new one! Do you plan to cancel the registry? This is a person who has no boundaries and it is going to be very interesting to see what she does next. All I know to say is, May God Be With You.
