Omg.. I dont know how to deal with this situation with my MIL and BIL. My Bil is 19 and decided to propose to his gf of 2mths. He bought my old wedding set from me and hubby. He didnt have the money upfront, but said he could pay 4 days later. So we gave him the ring, he had it sized down from an 8 to a 4.5. He proposed, she said yes, they broke up the next day.He didnt want to pay for the ring because he coudlnt afford it. I told him that I still needed the money, since now i couldnt sell the set since it was mismatched(he had the engagment ring sized, not the band too). Well, my electric bill came in, and it was $400-crazy!!!- and I needed that $100 for the ring to help pay it. Hubby called and asked Bil for it, and he threw a fit because he is about to leave for Basic Training and doesnt want to go broke. My MIL called and bitched us out, once again taking up for BIL and another one of his stupid little irrational cont.Answer Question

This is your fiance's family and he doesn't even want them there. That is pretty sad, but I would respect his wishes. I will tell you from experience about the car, when things are bad she will tell you that you broke it and demand the money until the day she dies. My mom is like this. She won't say a word about money until she gets pissed off. BUT she never asks for my little brother to pay her back. Back to the point. I would go along with your fiance'swishes. It is his day too and they might bring too much stress to him. There are still a few months and things might cool down by then, but who knows. Good luck and focus on yourself and your fiance.

First of all your BIL will not need money in basic training. They take all the worldly possessions when they get there. Not for good, just temporarily. When we help out family, we usually never expect it back. Because we never get it back.
