@0252scholm:  I think you may be right that the mom may not even be attempting to hide her displeasure regarding FI’s lack of job and money. She may be hoping they will break up.  Either that or she is  hung up on appearances, a ring, a nice wedding, etc.

Ugh, what a mess. I agree with “her involvement in their wedding and their life is conditional upon her treating her future son in law with respect and kindness.

Unless there are other factors, just having a less than desirable financial situation doesn’t make him a “bad groom.” She wouldn’t put up with Fiance talking that way about her Mom.

@Redholix:  Oh, I am so sorry for you…..  it’s interesting once you get married it’s amazing where the attacks come from.  I recognize it is to make the couple stronger and become one.   I agree you are better off letting the party address their own family, it makes for drama if you don’t.  I hope yours gets better soon.

I do not anticipate any improvements on my FILs’ part.  But as I’ve heard/read many cases where similar situations pull couples apart, I feel lucky that for my Fiance and I, we’ve bonded and came together due to our situation.

For that, I guess I have to thank my Future In-Laws.
