Try to distance yourself from them as much as possible.  And have your fiance deal with them directly as much as possible.  If you get into the habit (or if you already are) of responding to their drama they will keep directing it at you. 

My Future Mother-In-Law is a bit of a drama queen so I learned early on not to buy into any of it.  And sure enough, she hardly ever comes to me anymore with her drama because she knows I won’t bite.  

Good luck!

Dinner mints?  Really?  I am dying laughing!  Are you guys saving to get your own place or what?  Darling Husband and I live with his parents, currently, but our house is in the works.  It’s been a year and sometimes I just want to freaking scream and run as far away as possible.  So, I understand how you feel!

Is that all? Lol… I Walked out on the back patio and heard my Future Mother-In-Law tell my Future Sister-In-Law she hoped that I would drop dead before the wedding so she wouldn’t have to deal with me as her daughter in law for the rest oF Her life, and she couldn’t stand my southern accent, what will people think of them having someone like me in their family.

 

Sorry your going through this, but your not the only one.

@TexasSpringBride:  Wow. Just wow. I hope your Fiance tore her a new one for that comment. That is beyond rude.

@Utopia4us:  I haven’t said anything I’m waiting for some really good pay back.

@RobandLil0107:  You need to let your Fiance sort this out. Was there some kind of agreement when they traded in their car so that your Fiance could get one that lifts would be given when they wanted? How much money was the trade in worth? personally I would try and pay them back the trade in price so that the obligation was no longer there.

Wy not create a calendar like mums do that has all the appointments and when things are going to happen on it. Have a group sit down and agree on which days are shopping days etc etc and get a notepad so that groceries can be put on it and make sure everyone knows that if it isn’t on the list then it isn’t going to be bought.

Ignore FSIL- she probably just has a case of the embarrassed I told you so’s! never nice to have so try and think of a time that you have been in a similar situation and empathise a bit.
