One bride-to-be has shared an awkward situation in which her mother-in-law tried to plan her wedding, and people are well and truly shook…
But the searching can make it seem like it’s basically an impossibility. It can be a jungle out there, folks!
In fact, romantic life can often just feel like a string of missed opportunities as you search and search for “the one.”
But once you find it, for many of us, it really does make every part of life seem a little bit brighter.
Finding the person who’s a perfect fit, and that you can stay committed to for a long time, can make it feel like your life is moving in the right direction.
Having someone to hug and kiss (and who hugs and kisses you right back) is a pretty sweet feeling.
Becoming engaged to be married is one way that many choose to express the seriousness of their love for one another.
Many of us have marriage in our life plan and know exactly what we want when it comes to the big day…
However, some brides have to deal with controlling Mother-in-laws and things can get seriously messy…
One woman has been blasted by her soon-to-be husband for making his mom cry after they fought over a dress…
In a post on Reddit, the woman spoke out about the tension that’s developed with her mother-in-law, just months before the big day.
And people can’t get over her story…
“I didn’t want a big wedding so this was my idea of perfection and I thought my fiancés too, he brought up eloping way before I said anything,” she explained.
But when her mother-in-law moved a few doors down, things took a turn for the worst.
“Over a year that version of the wedding was canceled a 2nd time, [mother-in-law] moved down the road and I got pregnant. Since MIL moved she’s been hell.”
“I had the baby prematurely in December. She is fine but while still in hospital MIL told me all the things I’d done ‘wrong’ during the pregnancy that caused the premature birth. She visits all the time unannounced, I have begged her to at least call ahead and does things with the baby I ask her not to but she knows best.”
She also told the couple she was glad their wedding had been canceled, as they were making a big mistake by not having a “proper” wedding.
“She has completely hijacked planning our September wedding,” the woman continued.
“It’s now a lot more your traditional over-the-top big white wedding. It probably would be the perfect wedding for someone else but it really isn’t what I wanted.”
“The one thing I was adamant on was that I was making my dress and baby’s dress,” she said, as she used to be a bespoke wedding dress designer.
While she’d already made her own dress, she was waiting to make her baby’s dress so the size would be perfect for the day.
So when her mother-in-law turned up with a dress she bought for her baby, she was furious.
“I said take it back, I’m making the dress,” the woman said.
“She said I should be grateful she’d been proactive when I hadn’t, that baby would probably have nothing to wear on the day if it was left to me.”
“She said it cost her a lot of money and [she] won’t be able to return it. I left and my fiancé told me she broke down crying and was ‘inconsolable.'”
“After, he shouted at me for treating his mum like that and told me how I was turning into a bridezilla.”
Despite begging him to support her, “he said that I haven’t even made the dress so what does it matter if she wears something else.”
“I asked him to tell me the truth on if he even wanted this wedding as it was a hell of a lot of money to just throw at a party we were both going to hate”…
But he couldn’t tell her, so she took to Reddit to ask users their opinion on the situation.
Many urged her to reconsider her decision to get married…
One person said: “Think about whether you really want to marry a man that is already married to his mother?”
“Seriously though, this is a little sneak peek into your future. You still have time.”
While another added: “If your fiance can’t stand up for you now, he certainly won’t after the wedding. If your opinion doesn’t matter one bit to him when it comes to YOUR wedding and YOUR child, you’re in for a very difficult marriage.”
A third agreed: “Reconsider marrying this guy before it’s too late. He and his mom deserve each other, you deserve better.”
“The only bridezilla here is the MIL,” commented someone else.
