Re: Official FMIL Issue Support Group

here's ny issue. My FMIL doesn't like me. She said she won't even come to the wedding, but FH's sister said that if she has to she will 'tie mom up, throw her in the car and drag her to the wedding'. The thing is, I have no idea what I have done to this woman for her not to like me. I'm a very likable person; I don't have any enemies (at least to my knowledge). I thought that maybe she had an issue with me taking away her little boy, but i'm the one who's moving far away from my family; we're going to be living in the same town as her, so he'll still be able to drop in and visit her whenever. And other than her not liking me, I have no problems with his mom.

Re: Official FMIL Issue Support Group

I think this is an awesome thread!!! LOL, every other day I have a FMIL/FH issue. My issues include: (1) FMIL will not call our home, she only calls FH's cell; (2) FMIL lost her job 3 weeks ago and I spent all night fixing her resume -- did I get a thank you????' NO; (3) My sister had her first child on Sunday, did FMIL call me to express her best wishes for my family?? NO; (4) engagement/wedding gifts... has she bought ANYTHING for us off the registry -- that I worked hard to create??? NO -- she gets things she buys for her home, she got waffle iron, we got waffle iron
Ok, I think I can fill this whole thread!!! LOL

Re: Official FMIL Issue Support Group

Oh, that's nothin'!! My FMIL is trying to invite the ex to the wedding. She invites the ex to ALL family functions. She will not speak to me when she sees us. She only speaks to FH. She gave us a workbook/book for our engagement present, called 'How To Know If Your Marriage Will Work.' And, she left it at the ex's house so we had to go over there to get it.

Re: Official FMIL Issue Support Group

um... I don't have any issues like these with my FMIL, but can we please recognize the girl who suggested this for you guys on the other thread about FMIL Sweet Revenge? lol

Posted by sarahradio5

you guys should form a support group together! And introduce your FMIL's! lol.


THAT WAS ME!!! (not to pat myself on the back or anything. lol)

I just saw the need for it when I kept confusing FMIL horror stories between different brides on these boards. Inviting Ex-girlfriends, no shower, must play Greek music, RSVP's come to me, etc. Yikes!! GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!!!

Re: Official FMIL Issue Support Group

My issue is that my MFIL is like a 'dead fish' she has no opinion on anytthing, hasn't gone with us to give an opinion on anything and doesn't seem to care that her only son & child is getting married! Her loss though since I'm pretty much done with planning everything. It makes me sad that my mom is sooooo excited about all this and his mom can care less. Oh well!

Re: Official FMIL Issue Support Group

Genius! (I'm the original poster of FMIL sweet revenge..)

So lets recap my FMIL:

(1) She's looking into buying a wedding dress for MY wedding
(2) She's been mean and nasty to every vendor, thus embarassing me & my father and making me worry that the vendor will find a way to f-ck us the day of the wedding as revenge
(3) She uses FH as a messenger to tell me things. TELL ME YOUR GODDAMN SELF!
(4) She complains to FH about me -- the last time this happened I ended up speaking with her. I told her that if she has a problem with me she has to tell ME because FH can't rectify a problem that he has nothing to do with, and putting him in the middle isn't fair.

Re: Official FMIL Issue Support Group

Not that I am in ANY way a fan of Jane Fonda (can't STAND her actually), but I found myself watching 'Monster-in-Law' late the other night. (at this point, I try to watch anything about weddings, and it was on after Starsky and Hutch, so I just fell into watching it). I think you all would be able to relate to some of the stuff in that movie. You'd probably get a good - and much needed - laugh out of it.

Re: Official FMIL Issue Support Group

I'm so sick of FFIL at this point I don't think I even want to have a relationship with them! FSIL just pulled the biggest crap with me over the weekend I don't know if I can ever forgive her....
