Future Mother In Law Pissing Me Off

I just sent out the save-the-date cards and just got off the phone with her.  We talked about all kinds of other stuff for the wedding - a shower, the rehearsal dinner - and she never mentioned that she got the save-the-date card until I asked if she got it.  She said "yes."  Nothing else.  Then I said "Did you like it?"  She said "Yes."  Nothing else.  Would it hurt her to LIE at least?  She's such a bitch!!!!

    Um.................................what a bitch?

    Honestly, it doesn't seem that bad to me.

    Well... I don't know why somebody would go on and on about how much they love the save-the-date cards anyway...

    I'd hate to know what your reaction would be if it was something that really mattered. Its the save-the-date card. Not that big of deal.

    Im not sure what whole history of you and her realtionship is but maybe that has soemthing to do w/ her short answers. But if you like the save the date her opnion shouldnt matter.

    Seriously.  Most people I know don't like it when you give them STDs.

    I don't know what you are so upset about. She said yes she got it & she said yes she liked them. What else was she supposed to say?  I didn't know STD's were such a big deal especially for a FMIL who knew when the wedding was already & knew that they STD was going to be coming to her. Honestly I don't even know why you gave her one. She's your FMIL. either hand it to her if she wants it as a keepsake or don't giver her one. Parents don't need them

    well, like the other girls are saying, it seems like you're going a bit overboard here. relationships with future family members can be really stressful, as i very well know. not every reaction or conversation is going to be exactly how you want. not everyone is going to be overjoyed about the perfect color of ribbon that you found, etc, etc.

    i've really had to come to terms with this with my own future family, so i would suggest that you just take a few breaths, and realize that her personality might be a little different.
    it sounds like she is taking a lot of time to hear about your other plans (rehearsal dinner, shower) and just because she didn't rave about your save-the-dates does not mean she hates you.

    WTF? lmfao

    At least your FMIL didnt get all drunk and tell your FI she didnt like you, and that you guys shouldnt get married like mine did lmao. Luckily shes my FI's future stepmom, not his real mom. His real mom loves me and his future stepmom is a total fake bitch.

    Sorry to hear about your problem though, it sounds awful lmao

    Were you expecting her to fall all over herself exclaiming how awesome your STDs were?  Unless you sent her an original Picasso painting , it's just not all that exciting.

    The only thing wrong here is your expectations.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    It's a piece of paper with a date written on it.  I think you may be overreacting.
  • Options
    That's pretty much how my mom reacted when I showed her ours.  Same reaction when I went dress shopping and bought one.  She just doesn't get excited.  But she wrote me a sweet note about how much she enjoyed shopping with me.  Maybe your FMIL is the same way and just doesn't outwardly show much emotion.

    Clearly something else happened or is going on... Just take a step back and breathe.
    Take it from me, I have dealt with drama and stupidity for the last few weeks. I'm just over it. In a week or so, it wont seem so bad and if it is... Limit your time. For your sanity. Sounds like you need it.

    mstar284, I had the some problem. I got the list today, already labeled and not correct. Do I send them out that way? I can't and probably will retype them.
    Finally, a Mrs!

    Now that I've actually slept on this ... yeah, still don't see the problem.

    Nobody that's over the age of 25 actually commented on my invitations other than to say "Btw, got your invite". And honestly, if anybody was jumping up and down, over the moon ecstatic about how awesome my invites were ... I'd actually be concerned for them getting so excited over some fancy fonts and ribbons.

    Most of my guests didn't even comment on getting their invitations. Who cares about an STD? You're totally overreacting.

    i dont think it's that bad. trust me, things could be worse~ :) wait until you send out the invites, realizing everybody's booking hotel and plane tickets to come to ur wedding, and yet, nobody tells u that they get ur invite nor sending back the RSVP... and as for FMILs? there are a lot worse things they can do as well...
