She’s not the most sensitive person in the world, let’s just say that.

This is crazy.. I can’t believe that some of your FMIL/MIL are so rude! Mine (thankfully) is super sweet and supportive, so I haven’t had to deal with any of this. *hugs* to you all!

I’ve posted in this thread before but since we just spent Thanksgiving over there, here’s the latest.  It wasn’t said to me directly since I was pretty much ignored by her at dinner but it was definitely an insult.

She wants to take Fiance back to her home country because the women there are so beautiful and slim. Um…..I was sitting right next to him when she said that at the dinner table!!!! I’m also pretty slim myself so WTF? What is he going to do just leave me when he goes over there??  I said that we could go to her home country after we’re married. Future Sister-In-Law chimed in with “Oh yeah as your second honeymoon!” Future Mother-In-Law just scoffed at the idea. Good grief!

I feel pretty lucky with my mother in law. the worst things that she’s done was kind of pick a reception venue without consulting me , i was upset about that but once she saw my place she fell in love with it and we’re getting the venue i like 🙂

sorry about your mother in law. hopefully she’ll learn to be more respectful

WOW. I am so sorry…. We have been engaged now since April… and we are not getting married until Sept, but have been together since 2006…. She lives out of state so I dont actually get the little comments to my face if there are any? but…. its the things she says to my fiance…. we told her what we were thinking for the wedding… beach wedding…. and then once my parents, fiance and I found the venue we changed the date we were thinking and now its on the cliffs overlooking the ocean.  And my fiance texted her to let her know the plans changed but we were booking this venue….. and she said. this is how your going to tell me that you are engaged and getting married? WHAT? really… we called you after he proposed! and yes we sent save the dates out two weeks later… no… your going to get a formal invitation… just weird! and she then keeps saying, I thought you were going to get married ON THE BEACH….plans change! thankfully this is the worst… but we have a year right! 

Thankfully we get along well! I couldnt imagine some of your stories!

I love my FMIL! Something that I’m getting used to is more cultural. She’s giving me so much input on everything once Fiance and I got engaged. I’m not used to this, my own mother doesn’t even do this! Fi tells me, ‘get used to it. it’s going to be like this for the rest of your life!’ Working on getting used to it, but still am not.

Let’s see….


She called me a spoiled brat when I purchased a small suveneir from a street vendor on a family vacation that cost $2 (I purchased with my own money). Then asked my Fiance if I always have to get what I want.

She told me to just watch and see, that I will probably run my Fiance off soon. (because I was taking a psycholgy class I would start thinking that I could analyze him and basically I would be a know-it-all?? Doesn’t make sense to me, and the class was required for my degree).

“Just don’t turn out to be an alcoholic like your mom.” That was a really sweet one.

“If you get married in Mexico, I won’t come.”

She told my Fiance, “You guys have already been living together for 5 years, just go to the JOP.” We have actually been living together for 3, and frankly we both want to have a wedding.


My honey has two SIL’s and she can be pretty mean to them as well.

My FstepMIL was pretty controlling about what dress I should wear to my own engagement party. The one I had and wanted to wear was something my Fiance bought for me and never had worn it before. When I showed her she was so unimpressed by it and said it wasnt fancy enough. After that she kept sending me links to dresses that were $500-800!!! Long story short I found another dress the day of the party and it was so beautiful. But being made to feel like your taste isnt fancy enough was hurtful.
