@tmsing:  You and your husband need to set boundries with his mom and your mom. Rules should be applyed such as the following

1. your mom or his mom dont bash you or your husband

2. When it comes to family vachations or any other events you both must be invited.

these first two rules would help.

What in the world…?  How did you end up with BOTH your moms treating you two this way?  It makes me think that the two of you are WAY too nice and need to set boundaries before it affects your relationship.  Maybe the two of you should see a counselor who will help you learn how to deal with people like this and make sure your relationship stays strong throughout?  I don’t think there’s anything wrong w/ your rel, I’m just trying to think of the future when all this outside crap starts taking its toll on you two.

@tmsing:  Lay down the law now with your mother.  He should do the same with his.

Your mother’s comment was immature and petty, not to mention making her seem absolutely ridiculous.  I’m pretty severe about my boundaries, so if my mother pulled a stunt like that I’d have flat out told her I’d no longer be going anywhere with her.
