MIL had come over to our home to talk before our ceremony. She expressed her opinions in which she didn’t feel we were going about having our ceremony the correct way, only immediate family members, and not extended family. Long story short FI kept quiet the whole time so I stepped up to the plate and said that is not what we had planned and we are keeping things the way they are (keep in mind this was 2 DAYS before the ceremony.) That night he had asked me to call her and rectify the situation which I tried to do. The conversation resulted in her telling me that I should not marry her son and we are too different from each other in terms of personality and she would appreciate it if we held of on getting married. Needless to say he called her and told her, her opinion was not going to change anything. We had our ceremony and I was just upset the whole time. I didn’t even enjoy my day because of the fight 2 days before. She has never apologized for what she said, and I doubt she even feels what she said was wrong. How can I get past this? I feel I am holding such a grudge against her, and that she deserves it. Our relationship was never really close before, but we got along perfectly. There was never any annimosity between us prior to the day i disagreed with her. I know its easy to say just shrug it off and move on, but I can’t help being angry at her for ruining my day.
BTW, this was just for a legal ceremony, we are doing a symbolic ceremony and reception in Key West in a few months.
