Great. I got a monster in law.

I'm sure users can piece together who I am, not hiding from CM users, hiding my SN from anyone who I may know who may lurk.


I thought I was always nice to stb mil. I have always encouraged df to end any disputes, welcomed her, always nice to her and she always seemed nice to me.

The night of my bachelorette she spoke to df. She has it in her head that I'm out to get her. No idea why, she feels I'm with holding DD from her because I'm not sitting at home all day in case she visits (I told her anytime she wants to see DD just send me a text and I'll make sure I'm home or take her out to her place).

Well our wedding is Saturday. He said he spoke to her on the phone and she didn't seem excited about it. Then he told me she said "well, you still have two days to back out". I know it's stupid to let it bug me but with all the other stress I just ended up crying. I have literally done nothing to her only to find this out. My mother told me to just let it go but I really don't think I can. Df just laughed about it.

I know I'm not being crazy for being bothered by this.... who even says that to their son?


And end vent.

I'll be nice and civil for dfs sake, I'm sure I have family that he don't like... but on top of all this wedding stress I currently have she really didn't need to add to it

Little emotional there, to be straight if my son was marrying someone I didn't see as a fit (even if she was awesome person) I would say "you can still back out" i hope I wouldn't say anything more.

I have two boys and if they built a family with someone and that person helped them make a better life I definitely wouldn't be like heyyy just do you know. If I actually gave her a reason I could understand, but I truthfully never have

If your dd is also her grandchild she should be elated about the wedding. Finally her low life son has decided to make a family instead of living like trash. Better late than never.

I kinda get both sides but I can say if I was afraid that y'all just weren't a good fit. I would have to say something. I would feel like a bad parent if I say nothing. But then again I married "Mr. Right" in my early 20s. There was no reason it shouldn't have worked except it would no matter how hard we tried. So maybe I just can see a mothers fear.
If she acted an a** and screamed and tried to stop the wedding, that's b.s. but she just said you can back out. I think that is just am expression of fear and I can understand
