  • It's harsh, but if the girl really was doing all of those things she needs to develop some manners.

  • i'd have to agree with the future MIL on most of the things she stated. twas a bit rude, but at least she had the balls to say them to the DIL? , rather than act like a spoiled brat and take it to the internet. at least the MIL was trying to keep it between the two..can't say the DIL has any manners to speak of, seeing how she broadcast future-family problems. dear God, how will she behave when she's legally part of the family?
    if she can't handle it, she has time to leave the relationship. if the man isn't big enough to handle how his mother talks to his future bride, does she really want to be part of that family?
    its messed up all around. DIL showed no class with her actions, though.

  • No, it wasn't the right way to go about it, but now the girl knows just what kind of MIL she's going to have. My MIL played nice until we were married and then the claws came out. I would have still married my husband, but I would have avoided her right from the start and not been so hurt by the Jekyll and Hyde personality change.

    Answer by pinkdragon36 at 1:08 PM on Jul. 1, 2011

  • Yes. That was horrible. Some of those things could have been addressed delicately and face-to-face, some of them could have been left unsaid.

  • The entire email was posted down in the comments. I don't know how much of what that woman wrote to believe but considering how she went on and on about good manners, I would think she would have just pulled her aside if whatever her future DIL was doing bothered her so much. That would have been more more ladylike than a pissy email.
