Nah.  Mine was the opposite. 
Realizing that it was about more than me, that the shower was important to my Future Mother-In-Law and to just let it go.
His family doesn’t feel like it’s a wedding without a shower and so I let her win on this one.

She wasn’t pushy or insistant.  That helped the cause a bit.
I’m never upsetting anyone when I do say no, maybe a little disappointment, but nothing they carry with them.
That helps.

But yay for you!
Weird how these things are so different for everyone?
Letting go some was freeing for me and taking back control was freeing for you.

Good on you!


A friend of mine and her FH were so fed up with all the fighting between the future MILs about the wedding arrangements, food, clothes, flowers, parties, etc, they eloped one weekend.

They told the families about it when they got back.

The MILs were furious for a couple of months and didn’t speak to them but they calmed down. 

My friend and her Darling Husband were fine with that – they needed a break.

The Future In-Laws, BILs and SILs were grateful – they were sick of the fighting, too.

Both families get along just fine now.
