    @serabell: Oh I didn’t think Noritake meant that at all, I just figured she’d missed that bit of the post.

    This would bother me, too… and honestly, I can see my Mother-In-Law doing this very thing! But in the whole scheme of things, its not the end of the world, and you have to choose your battles, so I wouldn’t say anything.

    @aunt pol: Wow, I totally missed that part of the post. Under normal circumstances, I would not be upset with a picture of myself and my Fiance being sent out, but to have a family picture with all the women and excluding the bride; that would really pi** me off. I would be livid.

    I would be mad and annoyed, but I am raelly passive aggressive and hate confrontation so I probably wouldn’t say anything (I know, character flaw, but I am working on it).  Maybe you should just re-iterate to your husband how inappropriate it is and ask him to talk to his mom.  Though it sounds like it may be too late at this point.  Sorry

    Yes she did cross the line and this is completely uncalled for. Your husband needs to step in and tell her that she was rude in her actions.

    Just to play devil’s advocate here, is this a battle worth fighting?  Is it really about the photos (which could be seen as excitement, IMO) or is it about some deeper issue between the two of you?

    The thing is, you and your husband are a married, adult couple, so she shouldn’t be doing things like that. It’s all in such poor taste. I am so sorry!

    @Mermaid1082: I tend to agree with you here. I think the mom was just a little excited to send photos out. Is this worth making a huge deal about?

    i feel like i’m the minority, but i’d be ok with these things. i’d be flattered that my mil wants to show us off and send out pics. i actually expect both of our parents to give and show everyone pics of us. and as for the pic of everyone but you in it, were you busy on the dance floor or doing something during this? maybe they just didn’t want to interupt you on your night.
