@brideatbeach: No she was serious! She doesn’t have a ton of money, so she wanted to wear it again, which I can sympathize for. However, it is clearly a wedding dress and she would stick out like a sore thumb.

I’m an only child and she told Fiance that no one would ever choose to have just 1 child so my parents probably had fertility problems, which meant that I would have problems too, and since I was defective we should just break up…..

 

Isn’t she sweet?

She didn’t say it to me, but my Fiance “I hope the plane she’s on crashes” and she called my widowed mother to tell her  that I was a slut and I wasn’t rasied right because she didn’t have a father. Yeah, that went over well. My dad died when I was 14, and had a tremendous influence on my life. I’m sure it goes without saying that my mother doesn’t like Future Mother-In-Law either. The worst thing she said to my face is that I was fat and “plain looking”.

Future Mother-In-Law is a peach, let me tell you. These comments are all about 4 years ago, and she’s just starting to come around but I’ll never fully trust her. We don’t see them much and we will be living on the opposite coast. Fiance and I both have a much better relationship with my family than his.

My Future Mother-In-Law has never said anything rude or negative to me, which I’m so thankful for. She loves me to death and whatever plans me and my Fiance has or that I have alone, she’s completely supportive of and actually wants to help with whatever she can and she does her best to make me happy with the wedding.

This is new to me because in past relationships the mothers didn’t really care all that much. They were never rude to me to my face, but some of them said things behind my back, which clearly got back to me because the ex’s would tell me about it. I dont know why they were this way, I was only a teenager anyway so it’s not like I was a big threat or anything, Im not sure. lol But my Future Mother-In-Law is wonderful and I’m so glad that she likes me! She hated my FI’s ex. haha

i loveeee this post bc it’s like i’m venting just by reading lol

after my Fiance returned from his deployment, my Future Mother-In-Law threatened to not attend if we didn’t change the wedding date. she said it was so she could give her family “90 days notice” to make travel arrangements… at the time, the countdown was at 89 days. 

we’ve spent well over $10K because of the postponement (new vendor contracts, new STDs, two rents bc we don’t want to cohabitate…). last month, she said to me “see? everything worked out fine.”

LoL Mine likes to explain to me that she’d like to help me with the planning because I don’t want a tacky wedding. She also likes to complain about our destination wedding. Our wedding is a 15 (maybe 20) minute drive from her house. It’s also where we are looking to buy a home. I’m sorry she can’t handle the drive, but seriously? Other than her making slight digs at the whole planning process (‘are you sure that’s what you want? etc, etc) she’s ok. Not the greatest and I’ve met some great MIL’s, but she’s tolerable.

At my shower (to which she and her daughters were 40 minutes late) she told everyone that she told her son she wasn’t going to clean out any of his things or the dogs things because the marriage would only last 2 days and I would be sending him back.

Then she told my Maid/Matron of Honor that it was a shame that she didn’t go to “her party” but that I said she couldn’t go.  Darn right, the only reason she had “her party” is because I wouldn’t let her add 25 people (more than doubling the size) of the guest list for the shower my Maid/Matron of Honor volunteered to give for me.

Omg future.mrs.campfield I feel your pain. I never thought an engagement was a family descion but according to my Fiance family I have no say in when, how, or where we want our wedding. Apparently the wedding planing is up to the Fiance and his family in their eyes. Um no….

My Future Mother-In-Law (well it’s his step-mom) thinks she knows best and has the nerve to call me rude and told my Fiance that I never say thank you (wtf?!). Everyone I know says Im too nice, I was voted nicest girl in high school for god sake! But aparrently me saying that supper was delicious and I loved it does not equal a thank you in her eyes there for I am considered a rude person…..coming from the lady who blows up at her children demeaning them in front of company all because they accidently left 1 fork in the dishwasher….. 

Oh and to top it off they have the nerve to tell my Fiance that he is not prepared to get married and that he is making the wrong decision. When he assurred them he knows I am the one, they proceeded to say that if he gets married they will cut him out of the college fund that is split between him and his brother. (This fund was created by my FI’s entire family aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins – his parents only contributed a small part to the fund.)

My MIL  is totally nuts. When my partner and I started dating she flat out told me her Mother is a terrible person and very negative and argumentative. She wanted me to have a chance to walk away early on, because her Mom is very elderly and eventually would be living with us. Fast forward 7 years and she’s been living with us for almost 2 years now. We live in a very small 900 sq ft 2 bedroom, 1 bath home. We moved out of our large master bedroom with 3 closets and let her have it when she moved in so she could keep more of her stuff. She complains every single day about her “small” room. Her small room is 4x bigger than the closet size room we are now squeezed into. We don’t even have a dresser, the room isn’t big enough for any furniture other than our bed. She’s never once thanked us for giving up our room. When she moved in I was undergoing infertility treatments. Since we are a same sex couple we were using donor sperm. She told my wife and I that if we had a baby it would only be my child, not her’s and she shouldn’t have to take responsibility for my baby! My wife and I are legally married in our state and have the same last name. Of course my Mother-In-Law refused to come to our wedding because she doesn’t believe we should have the right to be married! She missed her only daughters wedding! Who would do that? There are alot of days when I just shake my head and wonder how my smart, loveable, fun, amazing wife came out of THAT woman.

Future Mother-In-Law is ALWAYS making comments about wanting grandkids and it gets really annoying sometimes.

Well one day, she was pressuring us to give her a timeline of when we’d start a family (mind you, this was a solid year before our wedding) and we were around a whole bunch if of FI’s extended family. FI jokingly said we weren’t going to have kids just bc she keeps nagging.

She went off the deep end and said, in front of like 10 members of FI’s family, that she was going to break into our apartment and “tamper” my birth control pills and “force” us to have kids.

No laughter, no smile. She was dead serious.

Psycho….

Omg I so need to vent my Mother-In-Law is the worse!!!!!!! If u bees read my first post ever its about all the drama she has given me so me and Fiance decided to keep our distance from her..with all the fat comments and getting him to drink knowing he’s a recovered alcoholic just so me and Fiance will have problems..she recently found out that we set a date and I dare say she is not invited ..Fiance supports my decision I know it must hurt him but that lady has hurt me so much I don’t want her to ruin our special day..she recently found out she’s not invited and told my future SIL whom is my best friend that she is gonna ruin our marriage plans as much as possible and is gonna do something horrible and its not gonna be pretty..I’m a bit worried because she is crazy and is emotionally unstable. She’s done shady stuff in the past to me my future father n law suggest we put a restraining order against her.lol sounds a bit far fetched but he has one against her(divorced) but she has threatened him and his new wife tons of times including trying to physically assault the new wife..u see bees I think I take the cake for worse Mother-In-Law keep me in ur prayers bees that she stays far away from us and our wedding.

The worst thing my Future Mother-In-Law said to me was horrible! We were out to dinner at applebees. It was my Fiance, Future Mother-In-Law, and Future Father-In-Law and we were together about a year at that point. She told me at the dinner table that his exgirlfriend is prettier than me….WHO THE HELL SAYS THAT?! She’s a girl he dated for 6 months 2 years ago and was a pill popper!
