I’m really proud of you that you told her on the phone to respect what you and your fiance have.  While I was reading your story I was thinking that I would say something stupid like “it’s okay as long as we can move past this” because I’m non confrontational.  So, I’m proud of you for sticking up for yourself.  And thankfully his family is behind you.

My advice is that you should not try to force a friendship with her.  Be nice to her, she’ll be nice to you, and maybe someday a friendship will follow, but if you try to force it now it will be shallow and not necessarily as real as you’d like it to be.

She sounds nuts. Hopefully going forward she can keep the crazy comments to herself. I don’t think there’s really any advice to give besides just let it go and don’t worry about what she says, which is easier said than done.

@lotto:  That’s on her. You seemed to have handled it as best you could. Good luck! & internet hugs! 🙂
