First off, it’s considered bad etiquette for your mom to throw your shower anyway because it will seem like a gift grab. So maybe explain that to her. And then, don’t feel like you need to prove anything to her! Trust me, you are going to get stressed out if you feel like you need to explain everything. You and your FH are getting married – it’s not a threesome marriage. My mom is out of the wedding picture due to her own craziness and fortunately, Future Mother-In-Law sides with me. I explained to them what happened, and they left it alone. Your Future Mother-In-Law needs to realize you and your family have different dynamics then she has with her kids. If she really wants you to have a shower, she should throw it! I think that’s acceptable.

If they disapprove of your marriage because of your relationship with your mom and your dad’s health, oh well. At the end of the day, your marriage is just that – YOUR marriage.

Good luck!
