You just don’t say anything.  What would be the point?

@ChocolateLime:  My guess is that you dont say anything. 9 times out of 10 that is what i would do….however, we dont know the story here.

You take the high road and don’t say a word. If your Brother in law plans to marry this woman, she will be your family whether you like it or not.

You can’t change her.

She can’t change you.

Confronting her would solve nothing except further burn bridges and hurt feelings. Just leave it alone.

I wouldn’t say anything. Be civil at group functions and otherwise ignore her.

@ChocolateLime:  Can you give details?

Say nothing and she will get the message. Make yourself unavailable for phone calls, texts, and social gatherings.

@ChocolateLime:  Be the classier one and ignore her except for when you have to interact with her at family events and then try to limit contacct as much as possible.  Saying something mean to her is only going to make you look bad and she might spin so that the family is upset with you for saying something to her.

If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.

@ChocolateLime:  um, she sounds very unstable. why would you want to confront an unstable person? it will do no good except make you even more of target… Ignore and stay away from her as much as possible!

@ChocolateLime:  And this is why sometimes you need to go against the ‘rules’ that are thrown around here!
