- Wedding: July 2012
My Future Mother-In-Law has never made it a secret that she didn’t really care for me. She was never outwardly mean to me … it was more of a sneaky, catty type of disdain. I’ve never really been quite fond of her for a variety of reasons (first and foremost how she treated my fiance), but I have been making a greater effort because FI’s grandparents live with her, and he is very close to them. They’re getting older and we try to visit more often.
I guess the extra time that she and I have been spending together has actually been a good thing, because I think we’ve finally made a connection. We went to visit for dinner tonight and she presented me with a necklace to wear at my wedding that matches my dress perfectly. I had been really stressing over our relationship, because it makes it difficult to visit with his grandparents when I don’t get along with his mother. I think this is definintely a step in the right direction. I don’t know that we’ll ever be BFFs, but she’s making an effort, and that means a lot …
