Wow that’s tough.  I don’t know if I would want to be around them much with all the guilting and saying that you aren’t a good enough daughter.  And I don’t know much about them but I worry that they will get close to you and then beg you for money later when they don’t have anything.

I vote for self preservation. Get a pay as you go phone and tell your parents this is your new number. If it rings you will know it is them so you can screen your calls.

Adopt your man’s family as your own. You can have your own family one day without all the drama.

I think you already know the answer! This isn’t a family. And if you and Fiance have a family of your own, do you want them subjected to this? ACtually, you and Fiance are a family already…and to keep that healthy, you need to remove this poison from your life.

I think next time she asks you why…you tell her exactly what you told us.

And some therapy might help you deal with the issues. It can be a vcery strengthening  experience.
