I was perusing DIY pre-marital counseling books on Amazon and spotted this review. All I can say is, I’m glad my Future Mother-In-Law isn’t actively rooting for the breakup of my future marriage! She just seems a liiiiiittle too happy about the outcome, lol.
Has anyone had an Future Mother-In-Law like this? Did you survive the engagement?

Holy cow… Even if the girl wasn’t ready to be married…sounds like a meddlesome Mother-In-Law gloating to me!

freckledfrida : not quite like that but my Mother-In-Law asked my mother at our engagement dinner “so….are you ok with this?” because she clearly was not. She at least knew better than to say anything to my husband hahaha. She made a joke the other day that she’s cool with it now because I’m giving her “her baby” (better known as MY fetus and her future grandchild). It took all of my strength to not throw the cup of coffee in my hand across the table at her.

allthingsthatsparkle : Same here! I read that review and was like, wow, I’m so lucky! My Future Mother-In-Law is absolutely wonderful — in fact, she and my Future Father-In-Law are marrying us. They’re both pastors, so it was an easy decision. 🙂
LilliV : That’s AWFUL! I’d have been furious.

freckledfrida : omg that’s so cool ! That is really special.
We got lucky because I always hear horror stories actually my step mother in law is the devil but she doesn’t count.

freckledfrida : I don’t have a mettling Mother-In-Law or Father-In-Law. But I have SIL that’s from HELL. She got all bent out of shape when my Darling Husband asked me to marry him.
“Oh, look. He couldn’t buy us christmas gifts but bought her a ring.”
“Oh, are you sure you want to get married? And if you do why did I find out through FB you’re getting married.”
“He’s going to be a drunk like his mother, just so you know what you’re getting yourself into. She was a wonderful woman but her actions led to her death.”
Needless to say I don’t like my SIL……

LilliV : I don’t think I would have been able to hold back if I had been in your shoes. My Fiance told me that when he told his family he was going to propose, he told them he had a ring and asked what they thought about adding another person to their family.. and Future Mother-In-Law responded saying “You really wanna do that?” Luckly my sassy(I say that in a good way) Future Sister-In-Law stepped up and told her she was way out of line and that she needed to take those words back and tell her son congratulations. She never formally congratulated us after we got engaged, and I’m pretty bitter toward her about it.

freckledfrida : KiwiDerbyBride : futuremrss17 : haha, I just ignore it 99% of the time because the fact that I’m not Jewish (and my husband’s family is) only seems to pop up at major life events and otherwise she’s fine. I get more annoyed when she says “our” or “my” baby than the interfaith marriage digs. She actually does seem to like ME, but it kills her soul that her son didn’t marry a Jewish girl. Luckily my husband and I are on the same page and he doesn’t tolerate her crap either. Although he does sometimes feed the crazy – he chose the moment after that comment to drop the bomb that her precious grandbaby is going to be baptised. Oye. That went over well hahaha
