Wow… I don’t really have any advice for you but I wanted to tell you to stay strong.

Don’t stoop to her level and do things to aggravate her, but you can stop going “out of your way” to win her over.

Just be yourself. Has your Fiance talked with her one on one about her concerns? Maybe there’s something more going on that she’ll tell him when you aren’t around that you can work through together.

Again I’m so sorry and I can’t imagine being berated by someone who I thought was happy for me to be joining the family.

Yeah. You crossed over from “harmless girl my sonny dates”, to “the bitch that’s going to take my baby from me!” It totally sucks, and I am sure you are a great person and this has nothing to do with you, other than the fact that he put a ring on it. I wish I had some more advice, but I don’t. Just know you’re not alone and that it doesn’t matter how many pearls you wear, or Thank You cards you write, this is her deal and she’ll hopefully get over it. Hugs.

I don’t have any words of wisdom but I want you to know you’re not alone!

My fiance was raised with a strong Christian upbringing – his parents are both pastors at their church. I was raised agnostic. My fiance and I have always been understanding and respectful of each other’s beliefs but I know his parents don’t approve of our relationship. They’ve always been polite to me but I know his mother says things to him behind my back about how “concerned” they are about our differences. It makes me a little sad at times to know I’ll probably never have a close relationship with my mother-in-law. I just try to plaster a smile on my face and pretend it doesn’t bother me.
