My Future Sister-In-Law has been very vocal to my Fiance of her disapproval of us getting married. She has tried to pull the other Future Sister-In-Law into the problem too and is running her mouth to everyone back home. I want everyone in the family to like me but we dated for 5 years before getting engaged and dont know how hard I should try. Has anyone had to go through this? Does it get better later? Or how about family events did they ever start to include you?

This is a hard situation, and I am sorry that you are going through it. I think the ball is out of your court on this one. This has to be something that your Fiance needs to take up with his family and tell them to please respect the decisions that you guys have made. It sucks when family isnt supportive, but in this case it sounds like it is just FSIL! That means that if your Fiance expresses these feelings to the whole family it may get nipped in the butt!! I hope things get better for you guys. I know how hard this can be!

I’m dealing with the same type of thing, only my Future Sister-In-Law is very cunning and nasty. She’s being really nice to me to my face but telling lies about me behind my back, so she looks really good and sweet and I sound evil. Since my fiance and I live far away from everyone, there’s no way for me to defend myself! I just found out about all this because I got a really nasty phone call from my other Future Sister-In-Law. They’re both SIL’s by marriage, married to my FI’s brothers, so they’re not blood related. I’m not used to having such negativity in my life. It doesn’t sound like you are, either. They want me to go spend Christmas with them so they can “try to give me another chance”. Talk about being in a viper’s nest. I don’t know why I would want to spend Christmas with them, or why I need “another chance” when I’ve done nothing wrong to begin with.
Let me know how your situation turns out. I say, I’m waiting for my Fiance to step in. Why doesn’t yours? I think it’s their family, their responsibility to protect us and support us. Mine says he doesn’t want to get involved and he doesn’t care about these SIL’s.
