Honestly, the way that you handle the difficult situations now will set the stage for when you have kids. I have a difficult Future Mother-In-Law too, but Fiance and I just make sure to set clear boundries now, so in the future it will not be an issue. It has seemed to work a bit too!

Agree with the PP as far as afvice goes.

But, I think its pretty darn fortunate that she DIDN’T have any daughters. She would drive me batty if she were my mother. Good luck with her. Like I said, I agree with @missapis:, boundaries! 🙂

Not sure how people can treat eachother this way…lets all remember these things and NEVER be this way for OUR children!!!

Good luck and keep your head up!!

Do we have the same FMIL? I feel like I’m reading a synopsis of my wedding so far. The whole control of the wedding planning process (he also has 2 older brothers and she planned their weddings completely), including the same cake dilema (no joke we had to tell her for 2 wks straight that we didn’t even want a cake) and her bringing a friend from 30 years ago. Now she just wants to hand one invitation to her office to invite everyone she works with. Did she also buy a bridesmaid dress to wear as her MOG dress? We had to change Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, so she wouldn’t look like them…she just wanted to “match.”

I have just stopped telling her details of the wedding. She makes snide comments about not knowing what is going on, but I can handle that more than the way she wants to control everything. Good Luck and the best advice I can give you is to ignore it as much as possible and make your Fiance deal with her.

My future Mother-In-Law does not want to come to our wedding because her choice of church (cathedral) was rejected. I want a church wedding but not in a cathedral, my fiance and I are planning to have the ceremony in a chapel. She doesn’t like the idea and told us she won’t be attending.


My mom was hurt and questioned this since parents are supposed to support whatever decisions their adult sons/daughters arrive at because it’s their wedding.


and it was a disaster..
