What could be worse than having an uncomfortable relationship with your future mother-in-law? The answer is: bringing money into the relationship. When I called my m-i-l to be to ask her if she would like to come with me to see a possible venue, her response was, "Well, I don't think I should be too involved with the wedding, seeing as how your parents will be hosting the event."
*Pause for dramatic jaw drop.*
So, clearly she thinks that we are doing things the traditional way, right?
Well my parents were a bit offended and informed me that if that were the case, then she and my fiancé's father would be responsible for the rehearsal dinner and the booze.
However, we have been engaged for almost 7 months and his parents haven't mentioned one thing about given us any financial assistance.
What should we do??
