hahha anytime i joke about FH’s bad habits, my Future Mother-In-Law will say, “he didn’t learn that from me. i didn’t raise him that way.” i always want to say, “well somebody did, and he lived with you for the first 26 years of his life!”

@artichokey: That is hilarious!
Update: Fi wanted to go to his mom’s house this weekend and stay overnight. I told him I’d do a day trip but not overnight. I was just really annoyed with her after the last weekend, and the wedding dress shopping rejection e-mail. Fiance basically made me tell him why….. So we had the whole TALK last night… he agreed that some of the comments that she shouldn’t have been said. He said that she doesn’t think about what she says before she says it. He was also saying how we shoudln’t get married if I think his mom hates me, and if I hate her. I had to explain to him that I don’t hate her and I don’t think she hates me. I think we’re just different people. I think she’s lives a very different lifestyle when it comes to shopping, eating and life in general. Our main difference is that when we’re with each other, as Fiance says it “she feels comfortable being herself” even if that means coming off blunt and offensive. Where I always try to put my best foot forward, watch what I say so everyone has a good time. It was how I was brought up, that you do things to be nice, even if its not what you want to do, because it’s what you should do. Isn’t that what being polite is??? Hopefully we find some sort of balance between now and the wedding…

Umm? “If my mom hates you and vice-versa, we shouldn’t get married?” Excuse me!?! I am really angry by his comment. What the f**? How does THAT solve the problem!?

She sounds like a nightmare mother in law! Does your fiance stick up for you? Shes prob upset because your taking her baby away from her. But those comments are unnecessary! Stay positive!

I know a lot of little things can add up quick, especially when you’re stressed, but some of your complaints seem petty. She sounds annoying, but I don’t think complaining about the drive or giving her taste in jewelry and feminism was intended to insult you. I think she was trying to get to know you (or trying to get you to get to know her!)
Some of the other stuff, ex and diet, i get. Either your fiance is right and she doesn’t think before she speaks (ex), she was testing you, or she has very strong beliefs (i suspect about the dieting). I have a feeling she won’t stop making those food comments anytime soon.
As for your fiance’s comment, guys can be dense sometimes. The point is can you live with her (well, not with her) for the rest of your life without constant conflict? No one wants that. Just relax. It could always be worse.

Try not to let her get to you, because she’s not going to change. Her unhappiness is her problem, not yours.
My Future Mother-In-Law does a lot of that kind of crap too. I’m very unconventional, and she’s the exact opposite so we butt heads a lot. She’s still reeling over the fact that there will be NO arranged family portraits at the wedding! Thank god SO was the one to break that to her!
