- Wedding: December 1969
As some of you bees may have already experienced wedding planning and having to deal with in-law tension is the last thing any soon to be bride needs. Both me and Mr. Tall have very close relationships with our respective mothers. Throughout the wedding planning we have dealt with remarks such as, “You spend so much time with your fiance and have no time for your mom now.” It feels like we are both constantly reassuring our moms that they are not going to lose son/daughter once we are married. My mom and his mom cannot be in the same room anymore which has taken this dilemma to another level. My mom thinks I am too good for the love of my life. His mom constantly wants to call the shots as to how the planning should be done. Recently my mom got upset because Mr. Tall bought everyday “transportation that is not suitable for me.” She refuses to speak to him. I think it’s beyond belief that she is acting this way. 1. I have my own transportation 2. I am financially independent 3.Mr. Tall needs to limit his personal spending (which is his plan and I understand why he is doing that). In her mind, since ha cannot buy a car that’s good enough for me just proves how I am too good for him. I am so sad about this situation because this is not the mother I know and I was never taught this type of thinking. Idk what to do or how to handle the situation.
