Is there something you’d like to talk about?

Geez, some bees need to lighten up a bit. I got a laugh — I need to write my Future Mother-In-Law a card before our rehearsal tomorrow, and I think I might steal some of this 😉

Writing letters that aren’t meant for post are usually a form of therapy or coping. So, I see what you did there…

Its not too common on these boards however. You’ll usually find subsections for “unaddressed letters” on support forums for the specific subject. So, that’s why you might find people somewhat confused at your intent here. 

You can also do the same in a personal journal for reflection if need be in the future. However, in your case, maybe it would be beneficial for your partner to talk to his mom and say some of these things to her…might break some tension. More likely it won’t.

Regardless, you’re a part of her son’s life now and he’s an adult. The umbilical cord gets cut…and you do become the main woman in his life.

People are just salty that she didn’t say the obligatory “Just needed to vent. Anyone have a similar experience or advice?” or everyone could blabber about themselves and their superiority.

I might make a couple revisions but otherwise I would send that to your Future Mother-In-Law.

brideonfire :  To answer your question of “stealing him from what?”, I’ll go out on a limb and say this: Your Future Mother-In-Law is having trouble with the notion that adult sons are supposed to “leave” their family of origin and, if they marry, “cleave” to their spouse. Your Future Mother-In-Law is probably insecure about something in her life and is concerned that she will no longer be the #1 woman in her son’s life and that you will be #1 instead. It has nothing to do with you. It is all her. She is probably realizing that oh wow, her child is not a child anymore and is making his own decisions that don’t involve her. 

Or not. Just a guess:)
