I am sorry you are going through this—believe it or not alot of parents do choose favourites with their children but they will always deny it.  To be honest just make the best of things and focus on marrying the man of your dreams, just be warm and be friendly with her and always respect her, your fiance will even respect you more for this and being the bigger person.  Sometimes you have to make the best of things and focus on the positives and not the bad.  I did not get a engagement gift from my Mother-In-Law at all either shrugs that wont make or break me.

yeah, unfortunately, she probably isn’t even conscious of her favoritism and therefore may never recognize it as an issue and change her behvaiors, even when it is brought to her attention.  i would follow FI’s queue and limit your contact with her.

It’s terrible that she is playing such obvious favorites- I’m sorry. My boyfriend is also in a similar situation to your FH with his brother being more favored. It sucks for me too when his brother’s gf is treated differently than me, and I am jealous even if I try to fight it. Just stay true to yourself- there’s nothing you can do to change how she acts. Even though most people seek approval and love from others, we have to make the decisions that make us happy. Enjoy your wedding and life, and don’t let your future Mother-In-Law get to you!
