I can sympathize with you in this situation...My future SIL (FI's brother's wife) caused me so much grief when we originally booked Cancun, of course all behind my back though. She was running her mouth saying the all the same things and that the Mexicans are going to try to steal her son! But, it all got back to me...so I sent her an email just explaining to do her research, and she would find that all these terrible things are happening in OTHER parts of Mexico. We will be at a private resort, and just don't go wandering if you don't feel comfortable. And I put it all into very nice, concerned words. Soooo, she decided to take my email and forward it to ALL my future in-laws! Majority sided with me, (not that they feel its safe still) but it was nice of me to take it upon myself and nicely resolve a situation without making it into a situation. All but my future MIL! She freaked to begin with, but ever since that stupid email, she just doesn't speak to me now. And if she does, its all about how wonderful my future SIL is. My future BIL & her got married on a cruise. I've been on cruises. What I can't understand is why is it safer to get off at a port, go where ever you want to go in an unknown counrty without the cruise ship even knowing where you may be, safer than going to a private resort in Mexico??? I just don't get it...Aren't in-laws just wonderful!

Ive never been to mexico more than a few hours but i know i wont be going anytime soon till this has stopped. And now they are raping all women and cutting up the peoples body into pieces. its crazy!"
How do i respond to that??? I know I should I just ignore it, but her and I dont get along to begin with, and everyrthing with her is a competition. She is already "legally" married to my FI's brother, but no one knows, and they are having their "wedding" 3 months after ours at home, so she's probably just trying to make people not want to go to ours. UGH!!!!!!!
