I have a stepmother-in-law as well, but we actually get on better than Mother-In-Law and I do. With Mother-In-Law, I HAVE to make it work with her, whether we bump heads or not, because she’s H’s mother. But with SMIL, the pressure is off because if it doesn’t work, it doesn’t matter as much. Try to take it with a grain of salt, she probably just wants to feel included in the family and in your and FI’s lives. Things will die down after the wedding, when there isn’t so much opportunity for her to layer “helpful advice” on you. You aren’t obligated to take her opinions to heart, just hear her out, and politely say you see where she’s coming from and appreciate her input, but you think you might end up going in a different direction as a personal choice. Good luck!
