While your Mother-In-Law was wrong to invite guests to your house on Christmas night, your comment about people being with their families is very offensive to those who don’t have families to be with, like myself.

I used to go to a friends for Christmas until I overheard (and was meant to overhear) a comment much like what you posted.  Thanks to that, I’ve now spent the last 7 Christmas Days completely on my own.  It’s a very difficult time of year for me.

Your Mother-In-Law is fill of drama and has no respect for boundaries. It is too bad that you had to entrust her with things like the invites and then she took advantage of that. Also inviting other people to your house, wtf? I get the PP’s concern but I know what you mean on this. I can ‘t give any advice but my heart goes out to you

AHJ:  wow. MIL’s are rough. my FI’s mom passed away when he was 14, so i avoid most of the drama. and he and my mom have an amazing relationship. my mom jokes that she’s going to be the MOB and MOG at our wedding haha but my mom also knows her boundaries…and if she oversteps and i bring it up to her, she listens. but i digress, 

i so feel your frustration… it’s the worst. women can be impossible. i once dealt with a MONSTER Mother-In-Law… my 7+ year ex’s mom was satan incarnate. so i totally feel your struggle. the silver lining here is that your dude isn’t totally wrapped around her finger. sounds like he stands by YOU which is wonderful. but hopefully, she eventually backs off.
