Sorry you have to deal with that, some people are just mean. My grandmother (mom’s side) is like that, I finally decided it was best for me to remove her from my life.

It’s not always easy but be the bigger person and kill her with kindness! 😉

I am so sorry to hear this. You are a strong woman,a nd she is just jealous of you and the relationship your husband has with your mother that she does not have with her own son. Sounds familiar. It’s sad, but she sounds like a lonely old b****. Stay strong.

You are 105% correct!

I don’t even know you or your husband but when I heard he insulted her right back, I was so damn proud! I thought my Mother-In-Law was bad. (Well, she is. But if she ever said anything like that my husband would have a hard time restraining me.) I, too, am staying silent. However, sometimes, when it’s warranted, it’s hard to not say anything. Heck, though, your hubby is speaking for you, which is amazing!

All good wishes to you, your husband and your mom!

I’m sorry you’re going through this…especially while you’re planning a wedding, There are so many other things which can be stressful enough, family problems don’t need to be added into the mix.

My advice? She’s being a bully. Bullies need to be bullied back, or else they don’t stop. I don’t advocate violence or anything like that, but people often confuse kindness for weakness. And please don’t get me wrong…I think it’s great that your FH is able/willing to stand up to her, but he won’t always be there to do so. Because this is a continuous problem, I think you’re going to need to put her in her place. Lay out the ground rules so to speak. Let her know that it is not appropriate nor acceptable for her to speak about your mother. To me, that crosses a line.

Good luck with this and in your planning! 🙂
