Turn the other cheek and just ignore ignore ignore. Let them embarrass themselves and sit back and laugh to yourself

I agree with letting them embarrass themselves. You just smile and keep it moving. Don’t let it become your problem when you don’t have too. You only see them a few times, so I would just ignore them when necessary. Let them be a spoiled brat.

avprobeauty :  Ignore them, unless this is someone that you’re forced to see on a more regular basis, I’d just let it go. Sure, it’s probably annoying but there will ALWAYS be people in your life that you find annoying or bratty and there’s just no way of getting around that. Be cordial, and limit how often you see them if at all possible.

avprobeauty :  unless they are on the offensive towards you, then this is not your issue. It sounds like this needs to be resolved between your in-law and their husband.

I would minimize how much you bring this up outside of the confidence of your marriage. You don’t want to be caught not minding your own business or gossiping.

You’ll never be able to change others, you can only change your own reaction. Give yourself permission to feel your feelings – even if you’re so mad you could scream! – then take a few deep breaths and move on. If you must, limit the time you spend around them. But definitely don’t take the bait of meeting rudeness with rudeness! They want a rise out of you. Don’t give them the pleasure.

As long as they aren’t behaving this way towards you or your fiancé, it’s best to just ignore them. Nothing you can say is going to change the behavior. If her husband is okay with it, that’s their deal.
