- Wedding: April 2011
I can’t believe I have come to this, but I need support.
My FMIL causes me so much disstress and I need to find ways to just let it go, but I cannot. I try to be nice and involve her in the wedding, but she is not helpful, is condescending, and then she is passive aggressive and will never say what she wants to say, but just goes around it poking little snide remarks into your side.
She throws a wrench into most of the situations we involve her in with the wedding. My parents are paying for everything, and she is barely courtious of that. She never acts happy about the wedding or seems excited about the plans. We have approached and she just told my fiance that “their” family is not good at showing emotion.
I am a very nice person and I want everyone to like me and be happy, which is my main problem. I get angry now at everything she does, and it is effecting my life and I think my fiance is getting frustrated (even though he is on my side). I dont want this to hurt my relationship or myself anymore.
Any advice on how to deal with this?
