I forgot to add that approaching him from that angle may make him realize how it affects you, I would imagine it stings a bit that he  is talking to mom more than you at times. Maybe instead of calling him out for it, tell him it’s taking away from time you guys have together.

Boy, do I feel your pain! I have no advice to give, but I just need to vent too! I love my future Mother-In-Law dearly; we became very close and I view her as a second mother to me. With that being said, she is very overbearing and it drives me crazy! She is often sweet and caring, but sometimes she just snaps!

She calls me every day/every other day which is way more than I speak to my own parents. If I am busy and do not answer, she will keep calling until I finally pick up. She will then ask a million questions as to what I am doing and why couldn’t I have answered the call the first time.

She can be overly sensitive at times and really grill me over the silliest things with the wedding planning if I do not include her in every detail or decision. So far, she has had problems with our wedding date, the color scheme, the order in which we walk down the aisle, our first dance song, the style of bridal dresses I am eyeing, the veil, my makeup artist selection, etc.

She often ends each conversation with a guilt trip of crying herself to sleep at night because she misses her son and doesn’t see him as often as she’d like because we moved to another borough (only 30 minutes away via subway!). Btw, the weekend before we moved she had a mini freak out and grilled me in a rude tone about why I chose to move so far away, why were both of our names on the lease, why did I prefer our new neighborhood to our old one, the list goes on and on. It was her son’s choice to move just as much as it were mine, but somehow I got all of the blame for it.

The fiance does not know how she truly acts with me as I don’t have the heart to tell him. We have different schedules so he is not around when his mother & I speak. I do not know how to approach my fiance about it as I know they are very close and I do not want to hurt his feelings. However, I know there will be a day when I need to address it somewhow. I just need to find the right words!
