    @ashleyr0512:  Yikes! Did she come to the wedding? If she didn’t that’s like confirming why she wasn’t asked to be a BM!

    I took this as a more general question.  First of all my in laws are better than I ever imagined.  And they are very sarcastic by nature.

     On their wedding day 35 years ago, she walked up the aisle and he said, “that is the ugliest dress I have ever seen” or some form of I hate your dress.  Wow.  He wasn’t kidding either.  He stands by that opinion even today.  Lol.  As I said, they have been married 35 wonderful years. 🙂

    @ashleyr0512:  Omg, MIL wouldn’t attend? That’s so crazy and dramatic! What a pain.

    My FH and I still live at our respective parents houses. Everytime I come over she makes sure to let us know how were not married yet so I shouldn’t be over late… And that if the lights are off the door should be open. okay, were 22 and 26… We’ve been together for 6 years and we havent gotten pregnant yet so I think we know what we’re doing. Lol.

    My FFIL doesn’t even talk to me so it’s not like I could have a story for him, except the fact that we have been engaged for 6 months and he still has said anything to me, even though we have seen each other at least t a dozen times since the engagement.

    Now FMIL, I get along with her most of the time but she has this thing were she likes to treat my FI like her husband, not creepy or anything but she makes him do EVERYTHING for her and gets mad when he takes me on dates without her.  And she is super upset that I’m the beneficiary for his life insurance and she isn’t, it’s like um hello we are going to be married soon!  She also cries almost everytime we talk about moving out and insists that I should just move into their tiny 3 bedroom rancher with one tiny bathroom. Even though she has grown to love me I still think she would be happy if the wedding didn’t happen or got pushed off until after she died and wouldn’t need FI to be her stand in husband.

    They both piss me off but at least FMIL talks to me and likes me as person, just not as the woman who is stealing her baby/husband.

    MIL (FMIL at the time) said the year SO and I chose to get married would be bad luck according to some kind of superstition. But since we were paying for the wedding ourselves (with some contribution from my wealthy grandmother) we felt we had the right to pick a date that was significant to us. SIL (FSIL at the time) literally cried when we revealed our wedding date (I suspect she was jealous we would marry before her, even though my (now) husband and I had been together for much longer than her and her SO; she was not even engaged at the time we announced our wedding date). She said (tearfully) that it would be shameful for her mom to have to tell her friends that her son was getting married during a “bad” year. (We had never met this set of MIL’s friends and would never even think to invite them; and while MIL was concerned, she certainly was not in tears over the “bad year” superstition.) Then SIL said it was her brother’s “job” to bring home a wife to live with and take care of their mother (my MIL) forever–which I think she knew DH and I would both object to. But we didn’t need to say anything; at that point, MIL scolded SIL saying that that was ridiculous, that is a very dated mindset and why would she even bring up something so absurd. (After SIL got married, I think she was relieved that this “tradition” wasn’t upheld in her family, otherwise she would need to explain why she hasn’t moved in to live with and care for HER husband’s mother!)

     

    Fast forward 7 years later, DH and I are still enjoying marital bliss (while living in our own house), with our relationship growing stronger every year 🙂 MIL is happy for us and cannot WAIT for us to have children. And we kept our original “bad luck” wedding date.

    When Dh and I first got together, MIL told me that I was ok to date her son since I “looked white” (I’m Hispanic). 

    As far as wedding stuff goes, she tried to buy an actual wedding dress to wear to ours.  Plus she tried to share her not so sage advice when we never asked for it.

    My FIL is one of the nicest men that I have ever met.  My MIL is the true definition of a monster in law.  We are fake nice when we see each other for the sake of my DH but deep down i know she doesnt like me and the feeling is mutual.  When DH and I were dating she outright told me I could learn to like you and my response was dont do me any favors.  You either like me or you dont, it doesnt matter to me either way.
