    Ugh the parents meeting (or not meeting) was a huge drama source… Mother-In-Law loves to stir up some drama!! Ha

    MIL/FIL/BIL go on vacation to a beach in the southeast every year. My family lives at a different southeastern beach. Probably two years into our relationship, Mother-In-Law decided they’d vacation to my parents beach city instead of their typical destination. She called DH (BF at the time) and told him that he needed to find her a condo for the week, blah blah blah. So DH looks into it and tries to find a property comparable to the condo they rent at their usual destination. Similar units were renting for 3x as much money in my parents city, and DH decided to just “forget” to get back to her instead of tell her how much it’d be. 

    SO fast forward a few months to us visiting ILs. And Mother-In-Law just goes off out of nowhere, screaming at me for not wanting them to meet my parents and thinking my family was too good for them, etc. when in reality, DH had never told me that she’s asked about accommodations in my parents city. I had NO CLUE any of it had transpired. 

    Anyway, the following summer they came down to my parents’ beach city for a weekend probably two months before we for engaged.
