It’s hard to be around that kind of person who dislikes you for no reason, doesn’t matter what you do or try to please them. Good that you recognize it early though so you can know it’s her problem and hasn’t to do with you.

If I were you I’d call her myself. It will be hard on your fiancé if he is constantly the messenger between the two of you. I’d tell her you are concerned that she does not appear to like you, ask what specifically you have done to lead her to these feelings and offer to work on your relationship. Unfortunately, you really do marry the family and it doesn’t get easier. My relationship with my first Mother-In-Law was the same and we divorced after two years as I couldn’t take it anymore and waited too long to have the conversation directly with her and take my ex husband out of it.

Your Mother-In-Law hates you and is jealous. You need justnomil on reddit because it’s only going to get worse. Mother-In-Law basically implied you were a gold digger instead of congrats. She is public enemy #1 to your relationship, and she is jealous. I recommend staying away from her as much as you can and try never to be alone with her. Make sure there is always someone around like Father-In-Law to smooth over her hostilities. It’ll keep it from escalating too badly.
