I don’t have any advice to give, mostly because I am in a similar situation, but I wanted you to know that I don’t blame you in the least for worrying about this. It shows that you have a lot of care and consideration for others and were raised to be attentive and polite to people who should matter in your life.

We’ve already gotten married (were LD before), and even now we don’t hear ANYTHING from my Mother-In-Law, even after very large family events or after she hears that large things are going on in our lives. When I lived alone and we were engaged to be married, I never heard from her and I often wondered what I had done wrong.

As I mentioned, I still quite haven’t figured it out but I wanted you to know that you’re not alone.

I don’t know. I guess for me personally, I wouldn’t see it as a problem as I have no contact nor want an outside relationship with my Mother-In-Law. I see her when I see her. I’m over 5 months pregnant and NEVER once got a phone call or email from either of my IL’S to see how I’m doing and any updates they get are from my husband. When we are all together, everything is honeky dorey, but as people, I don’t like them and have little in common with them so why would go out of my way and pretend that I genuinely like the woman or want to spend time with her. I also have to add that she has herself on some imaginary high horse where she gets highly offended if her calls go to VM or you don’t answer when she calls. Way back when I started dating Darling Husband, she called me and got my VM. Well, her message wasn’t returned in her specific timeline and mommy dearest got her panties in bunch. Oh well, that’s what VM is for. Since then she never calls me directly. Works for me.
