I’m glad this is just a rant because I can’t make heads or tails out of what is the major situations in this post.

@ThePrissyFiancee: it’s a sad situation with your mom but she’s a grown woman. If she’s that desperate to abandon her parents, nothing you will say about her Boyfriend or Best Friend is going to change anything. Your poor grandparents!

I just think it’s more sad that her entire reason for wanting to beat you out of the house is so she can saddle you with the care of her parents. If nothing else, that shows just how much she cares about them. She’s in competition with you, but not out of jealousy (which I could almost understand better). This is just so sad.

Why the need to mention that her bf is African? And several times throughout the post…? Undecided

Hoooly hell, your mom has some issues and I am SO SORRY you’ve had to deal with them. It can’t be easy or fair to you. She sounds a little like my mother, who’s put me through a lot of shit over the years in her quest to rediscover her “lost youth” (despite the fact that she didn’t have me until 33, so she got her teens and twenties to do as she pleased).

Sounds to me like your mother is taking her resentment and jealousy out on you and trying to one-up you. It’s frustrating and I know hard to see her go through this with someone who’s possibly going to hurt her, but she is a grown woman who is capable of making mistakes and facing the consequences of them. I’m mostly sorry your poor grandparents are caught up in this 🙁

I think the best thing would be to try your best to ignore her childish behaviour. Don’t share your wedding/future plans and details with her, and focus on your relationship and giving your grandparents the love and care they need.

Oh and do NOT let her guilt you into letting her live with you.

@ThePrissyFiancee:  no point…I was just genuinely curious as to the relevance. I must say though, kudos to you for caring so much for your grandparents. That’s really commendable.
