OK, I'm not a drama queen. I'm pretty nature and stable; my fiancé and I never ever fight. I love him to death and could never imagine being with anyone else.
But his mother is SUCH a piece of work. I love the rest of his family, except his mother. She's the eldest daughter and the total queen of the entire extended family; she always has to be right and constantly belittles everyone around her.
She's been incredibly rude to me until the engagement. Even my fiance admits it and he's completely non confrontational. Thankfully, her blatant rudeness has subsided. Instead, now she's trying to micromanage the wedding.
Admittedly, some of her advice has been helpful and I appreciate it. But she has this attitude that anything she doesn't want is totally disgusting and tacky. She is SO pushy; we HAVE to put china on our registry, we HAVE to have long bridesmaid dresses. Any time we suggest anything different, she gives us this look of utter disdain.
On, and every single time we see her, she goes on and on about this bride that she knows that is so cruel to her mother in law, and how if her significant other did that, she would call it off immediately if they ever disrespected her family. Yeah, she's not subtle. I have NEVER been rude to her, although FH knows my frustrations.
None of her family will call her out, so of course I won't either. And i kinda get it ... at this point, she is who she is, its not like her family can tell her to stop being so rude and high strung. But its really starting to get to me. Right now, I am searching for short bridesmaid dresses even though I'd prefer long ones just to spite her. I'd just love to see her squirm and get progressively ruder so I can finally call her out.
And I know how incredibly unhealthy that urge is. And it makes me so sad that I'm going to have to spend the rest of my life with her. That this is the woman that is going to care for my children. I've tried time and time again to bond with her, but I just cant open up to her anymore. I don't know what to do.
