You can’t conrol your FMIL’s actions, only your responses.

Just make a decision to stop letting it bother you. you can control that.

In the meantime, carry on with mending the relationship. She will be your MlIL for many years and perhaps grandmother to your children. It’s worth the effort.

Why do you feel the need to compete with anyone?

I would just plan your wedding and enjoy what you can with his family. Ignore or cut out the rest.

Don’t worry about your wedding or their wedding, focus on mending the realtionship. The family relationship will be there long after you are celebrating anniversaries and the wedding is some pictures in a book. Be supportive when you can be supportive and enjoy your wedding.


Work on keeping the family relationships good and forget about competing at all.
