I am sorry, but have you mentioned in another topic that you are converting into Judaism? Is it because of him (and his family) is jewish?

That right, I remember your post. So, your Mother-In-Law is Jewish? Its a stereotype to say that Jewish MILs sink their fingernails in their sons and make sure they have lots and lots of kids, so i wont go there as it will not really help your case..but what I think you should do is what you want and not ever give 2 s*its! Or you could remind her that you are taking a HUGE step by converting to Judaism for her son and that should please her enough.

You did say in another post that your father is going to disown you for becoming a jew after marriage.. so if you dont have him, and your FI’s parents wont have you, the hell with it. Youve built a good life for yourself. You dont need anyone. Dont listen to your dads ignorance or your MIL’s selfishness!

I hate when people say “when you marry someone you marry the whole family”. screw that.. that was probably coined by a mother in law.

 

Do want you want! Good luck!

It’s true about most jewish families that their ties are very strong and that the woman is playing bigger role in family than man. (granma, mom, than You) Did you say he is a reform jew? In that case it might not be THAT bad…If his family was orthodox, you would hardly be accepted even after giur. I knew an orthodox jewish dude, he was about 41 or so, and his parents totally controlled him because they shared their business with him, he seemed pathetic to me…

Well that sucks.  Yeah, I’d think converting your religion would be enough, but not for a stereotypical jewish mom when it comes to her baby boy.  😉  I hope your Fiance has one hell of a backbone because you guys are gonna be in for a lifetime struggle with mamabear.

Well, as long as you and your fiance stay on the same page, you are good to go. Sorry she is being overbearing.
