@brideatbeach: She said she would give you money if you had a southern wedding. That doesn’t sounds unfair to me, its her money she can do with it how and flaunt it if she wants.

I can’t say I have a good healthy relationship with my FI’s mother, and I don’t think it will ever improve.  I just think that’s how they are and I am different.  I came to terms with it a long time ago, which was very hard for me to deal with. I was in a previous relationship with another person for 9 years and his mother was my 2nd mother.  She was the kindest, sweetest, most thoughtful wonderful woman.  I enjoyed going out with her often alone, stopping in to see her at work, having lunch together, ect.  But the guy I was with just wasn’t right for me.  But I have the right guy now and not the family I envisioned but at the end of the day… all that matters is my Fiance.  He is the one that will live with me the rest of my life and that’s what matters.  I had the great family of the previous SO’s (I mean picture perfect), but I couldn’t stand my relationship anymore.  You just have to put it in persepective and know that you yourself have a wonderful family, a wonderful Darling Husband and that’s all that matters. 

I do believe in good things will happen for good people…. the others pay the price at some point…

Hang in there

@brideatbeach: Yep, that’s how it usually goes. I figured when you wrote this there were many other times she’s been like this.  But you have to remember, people that act like this are usually very unhappy people and don’t try to get too involved with it so it brings down your good vibe.  I’m not trying to talk badly about someone I don’t even know, but it kind of goes back to relationships in general.  Don’t spend too much time/get heavily involved with or put your feelings out to someone that is not careful and respectful of you.  I know we all want the perfect Mother-In-Law, but we have to be real and know that can’t always happen.  If anything, you should hug your Darling Husband because you said his own mother doesn’t treat him well…. thankfully he has you and your family : )

@brideatbeach: Who knows whats going on in her head. Maybe she just has a power trip? and now her little boy has moved on to a wonderful girl and can make their own decisions.

Just becuase she holds the money doesn’t mean she holds the power. ๐Ÿ™‚

@brideatbeach: She’ll come arround when you have kids. Some people DO think money buys people. Myself I would have been very willing to have my marriage in a swamp if someone paid for it. LOL.

It will get better with time. Shes having crazy mommy withdrawls.
