Wow. What a pain. I could tell you how I would handle this, but you seem like a really nice girl.  You’ve got a good guy though. (Good looking out with the shower issue).  Good luck with her, I’ve got my own! Haha

I agree, plain and simple, she sounds like a total bitch.  This just seems like something that you are going to have to deal with, but sounds like your Fiance is totally worth it, so as long as YOU remember that, you will be ok!  : )   Don’t let her ruin your wedding planning, and if you haven’t seen that movie Monster-In-Law (typical chick flick with JLo and Jane Fonda, but it is amusing), you might want to watch it, I think you would get a laugh out of it!

You say she’s 60+, so I think the majority of it is her age. You know, they older ones are “set in their ways”. Best of luck to you! Just don’t let her negativity and pestering stand in the way of a blissful like for you and FH!

Next time she does that with a doughnut, you look right at her, take a huge bite and say, “OMG, the cholesterol is so freaking good, you have no idea. Good thing you don’t eat this stuff cause I’m not sharing,”

Seriously. What a B.

Your mother in law sounds awesome. I love how some MIL’s like to inject their “wisdom” into every conversation. At some point, you have to learn to laugh at how ridiculous it is and vow never to be like that. 🙂

I love the idea of being presented by a father with the line “she gives herself freely but with my/our blessing”, unfortunetly, my dad did not!

  • Wedding: June 2010

I think your Future Mother-In-Law and my Mother-In-Law might be related. She is fulll of what I think are passive agressive and just plain mean comments sometimes. I try not to take them too seriously and blame it on the slight language barrier. According to her no one is as good as her family. She always goes on and on about how perfect her daughter is (over 6′ tall, skinny, blonde, blue eyes, was a lawyer until quitting to have her first baby, married to a well-known olympian in Sweden…blah blah blah). I always joke that the only way her son’s marriage could stand out was if my DH has married a princess (and I’m not exactly a hideous looking, worthless toad).

As for the food comments…omg! She is in her mid-50s and a very petite person. She works out everyday (like serious workouts) and hardly eats any carbs. She made a comment about hoping my wedding dress fit because I bought it in July ’09 (wedding was June ’10) when I was visiting my family in the states. She hears about foods that I love and miss from the States and comments on how unhealthy they must be.

The only advice I can give is just smile and nod 🙂 My one comforting thought in my situation is soon we will be living back in the US and have an ocean between us!

Wow, she sounds like a pain. Just try to tune her out, thats the only thing you can do and just be glad that she doesn’t live closer. She would really drive you up a wall. Kudos to your guys for standing up for you and good luck

She should not have said that about the ex. That is really inconsiderate.  And who cares if she has a nice body…your man loves your body…not his mom’s.
