When we told my future Mother-in-law about the engagement, she was less than thrilled. Actually, she flat out told my fiance she wished I'd said no ("for my sake"), and hasn't said a word about it since. When I asked if she wanted to help with the wedding plans, she simply said "oh, so you weren't kidding. We'll just wait and see."
It sounds like she doesn't want any part of it, which is fine by me. But it's driven a wedge between us. We aren't exactly close, but we've always been friendly and have gone out together a few times to get our nails done or shop. My fiance doesn't have a father, and it's bothering him she's not taking it seriously. How can we get her to come around? Should we just leave her alone until the invitations are sent out?
I don't understand why she's so disapproving. We're young, only 23, but we have plans set for the future and have good jobs. We plan on getting a house shortly after the wedding. We've been together for nearly 2 years. What's the deal?
