MIL - So Annoyed!

Recommended Posts

That is totally rude. She does sound like one of those people who is only happy when everyone else is miserable. sad.gif And calling her Mrs._____, well I would be tempted to introduce her as Mrs. Bitch! (I'm only half kidding)

It's manipulation, plain and simple. Either she wants attention, even the negative kind, because she' miserable; or, she is so selfish she really doesn't focus on anything except her son.

 

Either way, don't let yourself be baited. Blow off as many of the comments, rudeness as you can---- as long as it doesn't impose on you, your life, and your role to your FI. When it crosses that boundary, it's time to step up and bump her down a few notches.

Your not crazy. That's really rude. This reminds me of my mom and dad's mom. Never got along. My grandmother is always saying things that are slightly rude (not too over the top to be obvious) to my mom. And my dad always sticks up for his mother! Maybe your FI feels like his has to stick up for his mother. I know sometimes my dad has to know his mom is wrong but still sticks up for her. MEN!!!

Thanks so much, ladies! I appreciate all of the advice!

 

We had a wonderful holiday with my family yesterday - and it made me feel so blessed that my family has accepted FI so completely and considers him to be part of the family. FMIL in called yesterday evening and just went on and on about how lonely she was and trying to make FI feel guilty. I took all of your advice to heart, though, and just let it roll off my shoulders! FI didn't seem to bothered by her guilt trip either ... I guess the less reaction she gets out of me/us, the less she'll continue with her craziness!

 

Thanks again! Hope everyone had a great holiday!

I just read all this! So sorry you have to deal with that kinda crap, people are SO rude. It will work out though, and as long as you keep doing what you did the other night, which is let it roll off your shoulders and have little reaction to her b*tching, you'll be fine! I guess I'm lucky with my FMIL, she's a doll. My sister, who just got married this past Sept, puts up with a lot of rude comments and BS so I know it's gotta be tuff. You could always turn to liquor!?! shots.gif No, I'm kidding, ha. Good luck to you.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
