  • Wedding: October 2005

@His_missus: You are not alone! I  can totally relate. My FSIL does not seem to like me at all. Which is strange considering we were actually kinda close before my fiance and I got engaged. Throughout the wedding planning process she has just been a pain in my butt.

-She skipped my bridal shower,

-complaned about the bridesmaids dresses,

-we registered at Macy’s and she repeately makes comments about how she cannot afford Macy’s and how we should have registered somewhere more realistic like Target (like seriously we did not register for you),

-she has a super mega-meltdown because she is not getting a plus one (its not just her everyone is due to the size of the venue and the guest list and its 12 weeks to the wedding and she is single. Who was she going to bring anyway?) and called me super controlling,  

-she freaked out when she found out one of her friends was not going to be invited (why she thought we would invite a friend of hers that we don’t know we don’t understand but whatever) and she blamed me for it.  

She is just overall mean to me anymore. She acts like I am a giant snob. Personally, I think it just has to do with her own insecurities and jealousy. I don’t really have much to do with her outside of family events and when we are there I’m super sweet to her and I have never said anything hurtful or mean to her (no matter how much I’d like to tell her to stop being a spoiled brat and grow up. We are the same age, 24, and I know better than to behave like that). 

Asking you to give them money is beyond rude. I cannot even understand how someone would think that is okay? I mean basically asking for cash is just tacky. I’d be so upset. 

 

What does your husband think of her behavior? What does your MIL and FIL think?

 

I think that you are doing the right think. No matter how much it sucks. You will never regret being the bigger person. Ever. I am sure your husband appreciates you not putting him in a tough spot and I guarantee there are people who notice that she is just nasty to you and you continue to be pleasent and sweet. She is the one with the problem not you. My guess is she is jealous of you and to feel better about herself she needs to push you down. Don’t let it get to you. I mean you don’t like this lady so what does her opinon of you matter anyway?
