FMIL wants to "talk"
FMIL loves me (at least that's the feeling FI, my parents, and I all get from her). FI's parents are divrced and FMIL wants to "talk" with us to give us suggestions on what to look for if the marriage starts to fail. I understand this point of view, but how do we respond to this? I ust responded non-chalantly that we would talk about it with her later, but the next day (today) she texted me to say she can see how much I care for her son, but that she's serious about wanting to talk, because she wants to know WHY I care for him.
1) I'm a private person and find this to be nosy. How should I respond?
2) Our pastor is providing FI and I pre-marriage counseling as a requirement for having our wedding at the church.
3) How do you explain why you love someone? I just do!
Ultimately, we're interested in talking with her, but I think she needs to back off a little, too. This is her oldest son and first child to marry. I understand that, but I feel like she should understand that it's a private matter and that we love each other and that's all that counts. I'm just unsure of how to respond to her request to "talk with her". Any advice? Am I crazy for thinking it's nosy to want to do pre-marital counseling with us essentially?
