- Wedding: April 2014
my fmil is driving me crazy! im sure all wives say this at some point but i really dont think i can take it anymore. first it was that she was very insistant on getting a dark blue dress that matched the bridesmaid dresses cause thats what she had at her wedding that the mothers matched the bridesmaids. then she wanted it short even tho we have a very formal theme and she’ll stand out. i told her very planly from the beginning she could get whatever she wanted but the only provisions were to be long and it could be any color but dark blue. she hasnt gotten her dress yet so see what happens with this. Plus she hates my dress and keeps telling me i have to cut my hair even tho im growing it out to be able to do my updo.
Then for my bridal shower were having it in my appartments party room which isnt very big. when i invited her she decided i have to invite a ton of obsure relatives from their family, most who ive never met or only met once or twice so barely know. i do have a few of his relatives coming but its the ones i know well like a few of his cousins and his grandmas. its my shower and since its such a small room im not going to invite every random person, just a few close friends and relatives. her shower had over 800 people and i think shes trying to do the same to me. plus shes insisting on the foods i should serve, the deorations and that we have to have centerpeices and favors. Im not even the one throwing the shower so im not even paying. i have no intention of telling them her ideas. if she doesnt like it too bad.
the other night was the last straw tho. i dont think i have ever been more angry in my entire life. i cooked dinner for everyone while i was over and my FIs dad said it was really good. perfectly fine compliment right? well she freaked out and blew it out of preportion and started accusing us of having an affair! me, him and my FI all teamed up on her all told her she was nuts so she grabbed me and tried to throw me out of the house. my FI grabbed her back, everyone was screaming at each other. I pulled him off her and started pushing him out of the house cause i knew we should jsut leave and let her calm down. she came running out after us still grabbing at me trying to pull my hair. we got in the car and took off. that was insane! if that wasnt bad enough. we drive down the road and try to calm down ourselves and a little bit later get a call from his dad saying the police are there. she called the police on me and wants us arrested for battery against her! we got on the phone with the cop and told him our side which is the same as what his dad said so they dropped the charges. she started yelling at the cop to! the cop told us to just stay away for awhile which we did. later she called and told him he had to choose between me or her because you cant replace a mothers love and thats forever. which to that he pretty much just laughed at her and was like um yeh…im going with the one who didnt try to beat me and get me arrested earlier… i was like go honey! but yeh that was the last straw. you faslely accuse me of sleeping with your husband, physically try to hurt me and then you try to have me arrested? and this wasnt even the first time she yelled at me. there was a time a few years ago on his bday me and her were standing in the middle of the street litearlly screaming at the top of our lungs at each other. she has some mental issues and i can be tolerant and understand that to a point but to that i say oh hells no!!!
