Well very looong story short my brother is about to marry a psychotic, family (even her own) hating, dramatic, disrespectful girl. Everyone has done very well staying civil, since we are a very close family no one wants to create a wedge. If left up to this woman there will definitely be a wedge. So anyway last night my dh, me, and our kids were visiting my mom's for dinner. After dinner somehow she (the fiance) ends up in a heated conversation with my mom about my brother's financial issues from when he used to work for my parents' company.(At this time the two of them were NOT even together) The conversation went from my mom "venting" about the situation to the fiance taking it totally personal, yelling and becoming VERY disrespectful with my mom. For the kids and anyone in ear's shot's sake i intervened just to ask my mom to stop venting to someone who obviously doesn't want to hear it and is becoming disrespectful because of it. Well of course my intervention did not seem to change anything other than the fiance wanting to argue with me. I just calmly told her that im not going to argue with her but there is no need to get nasty because someone is VENTING to you. Its not an attack you werent even around when this situation happened so how about everyone just lets it go its between him(brother) and his parents. Well brother and fiance left with attitude, however this morning he did call and apologize to my mom. All this whole incident has done is bring to light just one of the million reasons we all wish he wouldn't marry her. I know its his decision and not my business, but having been thru a divorce due to simply marrying the wrong person i'd hate to seem him go thru the same things. Is this something i should or shouldn't have my own seperate talk with my brother about or do i just fake smile as i am one of HER bridesmaids?
