@DJones69:  Agree with all of this.

FI’s parents are like this.  FI is an only child, and they are so used to him pandering to their BS…and it’s been an almighty shock to them that, as a 45 year old woman, I won’t. 

As I’ve said to Fiance a million times before – your parents = your problem.  I’m not going to piss my pants and leap 10 feet in the air just because they think they are the lord god on high…to me all they are are two judgemental and bigoted idiots in their mid 60s that in normal circumstances I would avoid like the plague. 

Tell your mother to get over herself.  Adults decide for themselves when they return phone calls.

@whycantwejustgetalong:  As the last poster said: Your parents = your problem.

You should talk to your parents, not your Fiance. Either you be the middle-woman, and call back on FI’s behalf. Or you all meet in person, so Fiance can talk to them but you’re present and can iron out difficulties.

Fiance talking to your parents directly, on big issues like where to spend money, is just asking for trouble. They don’t really know each other that well, and Fiance comes from a family with different dynamics. So misunderstandings and tension are almost inevitable.
