My fiance and I have been living with his mom for a few months now, saving up for the wedding and to buy a house. I was under the impression that everything was going fine. It now seems that I was quite wrong.
Last night, I was waiting for someone to pick me up to go out after work, but my fiance's mom must have thought I had already left. Her best friend called her to talk. For some reason, she always talks on speakerphone. From downstairs I heard her refer to me as "the princess" in a really condescending tone. She went on to tell her friend that I "just prance around the house all the time, not lifting a finger to do anything." I was shocked! Fortunately, my friend knocked on the door at that time and I left. I have no idea if she knows I heard her.
I am really upset about what she said because it came out of nowhere! For what it's worth, I do virtually all the dishes at the house, clean bathrooms, vacuum, do laundry, clean up after her annoying, non-housebroken, dog, etc. This weekend specifically, I asked her repeatedly what I could do to help her with her gardening and opening the pool and she repeatedly told me "nothing, don't worry about it"
I kinda think it might be coming from her thinking that i'm taking her only son away from her or something. . . but i'm pretty upset about it, and don't know what to do.
I spoke to my fiance about it and he told me that I need to remember that she is impossible to deal with, and nothing will ever be good enough for her. Ugghh!!!
