I’m sorry I don’t have much advice for you! My Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law are…well…not exactly judgemental. There’s just a certain way everything has to be done, and if you don’t do things the way they expect, it just blows their minds!

Future Father-In-Law wants both fiance and myself to quit our “soul-sucking jobs” and become farmers. Future Mother-In-Law wants me to dress like a girl, and freaked out when I said I was wearing an ivory dress, rather than white. That’s just only a couple of ways they judge our lives, but they’re the two that they’re focusing on at the moment.

Our way of dealing with it is just to act really excited about anything we know they’re going to get upset about (e.g. “My dress is so amazing! It’s ivory, strapless, etc. etc. I can’t wait to wear it!”). If they bring up something and we know they’re about to carry on about what they think we should do, we usually cut in with how happy with are with X situation (e.g. Future Father-In-Law says “I’ve been thinking about your jobs and how hard it is…” and we cut in with “Yeah, our jobs are great! It’s a tough job, but it’s so rewarding. Besides, someone’s got to do it!”). That usually shuts them up.
