I’ve posted before about how Future Father-In-Law isn’t keen on me. I think he sees me as a golddigger – if I am, I’m a pretty crap one. My exH was worth 3/4 of a million pounds, I haven’t taken a penny from him. FI works in Care (of which I’m so proud of) and is happy but not particularly well paid. I now have as little as possible to do with Future In-Laws.
Fiance is living with them for the next three months before moving to our new flat. He needs to work out his notice, etc. He is their only child, they are extremely well off, Fiance works long hours and isn’t around much.
Future Father-In-Law was driving Fiance the other day, and conversation turned to our new flat. I’ve had serious health problems, and have recently had bacterial pnuemonia which saw me hospitalized for a short time. As a result I’ve not worked for a few months. FFIL started saying things like ‘Mittens needs to do this, Mittens needs to get a job’…Fiance replied ‘She knows what she needs to do’…
Then came the strange question from Future Father-In-Law…’Do you love Mittens?’
WTF? We’ve been together 2 and a half years, engaged for a year and a half! Does Future Father-In-Law honestly think Fiance would get engaged to a woman he doesn’t love???
Fiance replied ‘Of course I do!’ FFIL didn’t say much after that…
I’m pretty hurt he asked, to be honest. Am I right to be hurt? How would fellow bees react if the same happened to them?
