    Angry I need to vent.......yet again! *Sorry*

    This may not sound like a big deal but it is to me and I am getting frustrated. Jeff and I have not told his mom that we are getting married at a park, she thinks we are doing it at the courthouse still. I told her that Jeff didn't want to have people there because it would only take 5 minutes. That's not the real reason, it's because he hates his mom. Now I know hate is a strong word, especially to use towards your own mother, but after living in the same house with this woman, I can see why he does hate her, and I have also grown not very fond of her at all. It's very hard to live with her, and we try our best not to fight with her because we all live here together and I would like to remain sane.

    We decided to still be nice to her and have all three of us go out to dinner that evening to celebrate (cause it's also Jeff's Birthday). Jeff didn't even want to do that with her but I said that all heck will break loose if we don't somehow celebrate this with her.

    When I told Jeff's mom that we are getting married, she immedietly invited herself. I talked to Jeff about it that night and that's when he said no way, so I told his mom, in a nice way, that nobody else will be there so yada yada yada......

    Now last week, she told me that this guy she is seeing (he's obsessed with her and she uses him for money, it's such a loving relationship!) wants to take us ALL out for dinner on our wedding day. I have said hi to this guy maybe 5 times and Jeff has NEVER met him (until last week). I said no I don't want this, we don't know the guy, he doens't know us at all and it would be like a stranger taking us out on our wedding day, kinda awkward! Ok so I said no. She talks bad about this guy ALL the time and doesn't want to be with him but he won't leave her alone so she keeps going out with him.

    Ok so that day she told me this, I thought everything was ok (sorta) until this guy comes in (with Jeff's mom) and personally TELLS (not asks) Jeff (who had JUST come home from work and had a very crappy day) that he is going to take us all out for dinner, he's paying for everything. Jeff said no it's ok the first time, but he kept pushing it (meanwhile, Jeff's mom is standing behind him making faces and saying sorry quietly to me, apparently she had no idea he was going to come in and say this). So he told us to pick a place.

    Jeff and I felt very uncomfortable but a few days later we picked a place. We picked a Chinese restaurant, it is cheap but the food is still good. I told Jeff's mom this the other day and she said "No, that's too cheap" (see she just uses him for money!) I said well, Jeff and I don't feel very comfortable picking an expensive place and having a stranger pay for it!

    BTW we were told to pick a place, and when I suggested the chinese place to Jeff's mom she right away said no, only proving once again that everything is about HER HER HER! SHE invited herself to our wedding and now HER boytoy wants to pay for everything. SHE wants to go to a really expensive place over here but Jeff and I refuse. It would be about $25 per person and that's just too much in our eyes. So why were we asked where we wanted to go if it really didn't matter??

    So right then I said to Jeff's mom that we don't want her boyfriend to do this, we don't feel comfortable. So she said that she'll just tell him that Jeff and I changed our minds and nobody is going.

    Well apparently she has not told him this yet! Just now he came to pick her up. Jeff's mom went to her room to get ready. While she was there, he started whispering to me, telling me that it really hurts Nancy's (Jeff's mom) feelings that she can't go to the wedding reception and if we could change it from noon to like 3pm, because she will be off work by then. I got so pissed! Once again, someone is trying to push their way into our wedding. He doesn't know that the reason we don't want her there is because we don't like her and don't want to share this special day with her at all! So now he's telling me to change MY wedding time to accomadate HER!

    HECK NO!

    I just grabbed my dog and took off to my room, I said nothing. He was whispering stuff like, "I don't want her to know I asked" and "It really hurts her feelings that she can't be there" and blah blah blah.

    I know what I just wrote was incredibly mean, but please believe me when I say that this woman is very mean and cruel. She says VERY mean things to Jeff (and sometimes to me too) for NO REASON. She constantly talks behind our back to her daughters and friends (i've overheard her on the phone a couple times talking bad about me and Jeff), telling them lies about us and then we get mean calls from them telling us to be nice to her and they tell us she said things that NEVER happened! We have been threatened to have the cops called on us by Jeff's sister because she is afraid for her mother's life! Like we would ever touch the woman! She told her daughter that she's afraid of Jeff! He's has never raised a hand to her nor will he ever! She has lied countless amount of times and I've had it. Jeff has learned to ignore her but he still gets very upset. He barely says two words to her when they're in the same room. She does not like us, that is quite apparent but she likes to pretend that she does. Everything must be about her, so even though she doesn't like us and is totally against this marriage, she still invited herself right away to our wedding, to make herself feel better I guess.

    She doesn't even know that the dog is going! I don't enjoy being two-faced and I know that is what I am doing with her (as is she with us) but we do have to live together at this point, we have no choice at the moment, so we have to make the best of it, so if I have to pretend to like her and smile at her just so she won't go balistic on us and start slamming doors and throwing things and SCREAMING curse words at us, well then that's what I have to do.

    I have talked to my mom a lot about this and she said that unfortunetly we have to be pleasant with each other. I'm trying but it's hard. I want nothing to do with her or her daughters and as soon as Jeff and I move, she will be in our past. We are not giving her our new address or phone or anything.

    It's unfortunate, I wish Jeff was as close to him parents (his dad died, but he was a jerk too) as I am to mine, but sometimes it doesn't work out.

    I'm sorry this is so long, I'm just upset. I just want to marry Jeff, that's all.
    Great Googly Moogly!

    Oh that sucks. All I can say is that this wedding is about you and jeff, so despite what she says or does, I think you should try to continue with your plans. Your wedding only happens once, so the way you and Jeff want it is the best way... I'm not in your shoes though so it's probably easier said than done.. I'm sorry...I wish you both the best of luck.

    That does suck. It can be really difficult dealing with "future" in-laws. Just imagine how big of an ordeal it would be if you were having a large wedding. Of course, then she would be invited and that problem would be settled...

    My dad once told me: "Son, I've been doing the dishes and washing clothes for 35 years and I havn't enjoyed it once. Sometimes you have do do things you don't want to do just to keep the peace."

    As much as it is a pain to deal with, I would just recommend going along and keep in mind that soon you will be on your own, and as you said, all this will be in the past. It really sucks having so many people in your business; but, you might suggest that you want to go out to dinner before the wedding instead of on your special day. Then you can talk to them both and explain why you want it to just be the two of you. Then they could have a small part of the wedding celebration prior to the actual day, and then you can also have a nice (hopefully) conversation with them. However, it sounds like that might not be possible... Regardless, sometimes you have to do things you don't want to do just keep the peace.

    It sucks, but soon it will all be over and at the end of the day, you and Jeff will be married.

    Hope that helps a little...

    A wedding (and the first few months afterwards) can be the first big hurdle for a couple and you have be very accepting of all kinds of things. Am I reading it right that you're living with his mother? If so, you have to be even more accomodating
