Not right into my face but behind my back. She tells everyone I had lots of live in partners in the past. I have no idea where that came from and knows very well that it’s NOT TRUE!

 

When confronted by her son, she started crying and denying and cursing me. That reminds my fiance how his mother acted when few years ago his ex girlfriend was accused of being a gold digger by his mom. When he confronted her, she reacted exactly the SAME WAY she did just now!!!!!!

 

This is so frustrating I don’t even know how to deal with this anymore. Everything’s getting worse everyday……

@future.mrs.campfield:  I’m in a similar boat.  My Future Mother-In-Law is pissed we’re getting married Catholic and refuses to participate…but since the religious annulment from his first marriage is taking so long we’re actually considering getting married outside the Church she’s ecstatic.

WE currently have a child together and right b4 she was born she was insistent on my daughter being born on specific days b/c it was someone else’s birthday…some long lost dead relative.  I had her on his ex’s bday….not on purpose :-p

Before I had my daughter she insisted that because Jack now has 2 (one of each) including a boy from his first marriage that I SHOULD BE FIXED!!!!  Repeated this many times til he said ummmm we want more kids eventually.  ugh…

hmm she is very careful with what she sais.  My Future Mother-In-Law is a very smart woman. 

We live in different states so we don’t spend a lot of time together, but whenever we meet we both act with a lot of respect towards each other.  Now what she sais to my fiance that’s a different story.  I know that she is worried that I don’t handle money the same way she does.  And actually I am glad I don’t and I wish that one day she will wake up and realize that saving money is not the most important thing in life.

Wow. These are all so horrile. 🙁 I actually get along with my Future Mother-In-Law really well. Shes sweet and has always been nice to me and made me feel comfortable with her family. She is sometimes a little crazy with her emotions, due to menopause, but  its directed towards Fiance, not me. Haha.

My Ex-FMIL (from years ago) told me that anyone who breasteds thier children past 6 weeks were doing it for themselves and not for their babies.   She equated them to doing it for sexual kicks!   And she used to be a nurse!

Needless to say, my relationship with her son didn’t work out.  She was so opinionated and used to get my ex going about the silliest stuff.   He also thought she knew everything…

My Future Mother-In-Law has been driving me crazy since I was 16. She still hasn’t forgiven me for breaking her son’s heart when we were that age even though we got back together in college. She says a lot of things behind my back so I’m not sure what the worst is, but when we got engaged she told us we were “too young” – I am 24 and my fiance will be 25 at the wedding. She has thought for many years that I was going to intentionally get pregnant and “trap” him. They were not supportive after the engagment but I started planning the wedding immediately. 6 months later she didn’t like my choices and tried to get me to change the date, the venue, the music, everything. After I’d already signed contracts and made deposits and she tried to bribe me by saying she would pay the difference. I gave her the project of making the centerpieces and put her in complete control of the rehearsal dinner to get her off my back.

@PrettyInInk_85:

I’m saddened to hear how your parents reacted to your fiance. Famiy’s should be supportive & happy that another family member found love & someone to spend the rest of their life with. Hang in there. I hope they change & see the bigger picture (YOUR HAPPINESS)!

SENDING YOU HUGS!

I hate hearing how women treat each other this way….

My Mother-In-Law is very very sweet but has made some very strange requests (the photo list, her photos MUST be taken close to the time of the ceremony because she isn’t “getting pictures taken at 9am, etc etc)…BUT my ex-bf’s mom said this to me,

“He’s mine, you just have him on loan.”

My response?:  You can have him back.  I don’t compete.

Needless to say we broke up a few months later….I still wonder how many more gf’s she terrorized in her own insecurities (that is what fuels these horrible comments).

Its not a said…although “one typically loses weight in the run up tp a wedding” said to her 100lb DIL to be…. anyway

My bigger pet-peeve is that she is not arrangeing or attending ANY pre-wedding festivities. She will show up for the rehersal and the wedding. Showers? Nope. Bridesmaids luncheon? Nope etc. etc. etc

My Future Mother-In-Law is so amazingly sweet.  SO has had a rather rocky past with relationships, and has been single a very long time.  Basically, she is just happy to see her youngest son happy.  My SO is almost 13 years older than me though, which means his mom is in her late 60’s.  My SO and I started online, and got to meet his parents on our first meet together.  Both of his parents gave me huge hugs and kissed me on the cheek, and said “We feel like we have already known you for years!”  SO and I aren’t even engaged yet, though he is planning it soon and has already told his parents (they are absolutely ecstatic).  I already call them Mom and Dad.  I think I lucked out, hehe.

@Lauren10.8.11: Was she serious or was this a joke? OMG!

Well, let’s see. My Mother-In-Law has been horrendous since we first got together, so the WORST?

Probably when she put as her Facebook status: I always dreamed my son would have a WHITE wedding. I guess it’s too late for that, hmm? 

Oh, and to make it better? She clarified her meaning in another comment, making sure everyone in the world (including my parents, who she had Friended on FB!!) knew that we were living together and having sex before marriage.

She never said it TO me but she said some pretty hurtful and racist stuff to my fiance about me before she’d even met me. Luckily she has since changed her mind and has never acted this way towards me. I think the “worst” thing she’s ever said was that I was skinny and that my name was not a name but a word that meant “little child/girl” and that I’d need to change it. Lol.

You’ll get a laugh out of this one bees:

While cleaning dishes in my home, my FI’s mother said “Auggh you use Ajack dish detergent —- its so cheap! Guess where we got this cheap dish detergent from – HER!

She gave it to me & her son in a “new home welcome basket”.

Hahaha to this day, me & my family laugh about that one.
