You’ve been together 5 1/2 years and his mother still thinks it won’t last?  Does your time together not prove anything?  Some people just have to be right I’m afraid.

Your story reminds me of this song…

Unfortunately I can’t commisserate with you on this one.  My FI’s parents adore me and my parents adore him.  I do think that it will get better for you after you’re married though… at that point what can Future Mother-In-Law do unless she tries to break you two up after the fact?

Well said, Jen! As for the OP, good for your man for seeing through his mother’s behavior. 🙂 I wish I had some advice, but all I can say is to keep doing what you’ve been doing and don’t feel guilty. She’s the one putting this on your man, not you!

I truly have empathy for you.  There are some people you just can’t win over though.  My mother in law (his stepmother who practically raised him) didn’t like me either.  In fact, she cried the entire day of our wedding.  She never even gave me a chance before deciding I wasn’t her type.  We’ve been happily married now for almost 30 years and at this time, she is no longer in our lives.  My husband finally got fed up with her constant criticism of me, my family, etc and he blew his top and told her where to go about 9 years ago.  We no longer see her, his dad or his half brother.  His “talk” with her was one of the happiest days of my life and I honestly don’t miss the bitter hateful woman being in my life.  I know that I will never treat my son’s future wife (whoever she may be) that way.  I am proud of your fiance taking up for you with her, he should.  And if you’ve been together 5 1/2 years what on earth would make her think you won’t stay together?  She’s crazy and doesn’t know what she’s talking about.  Don’t sweat it, she isn’t worth it.  🙂
