How important is your relationship with your mother-in-law? I'm getting married soon and have issues with mine. She actually tried to fight me a few months ago and told me that I am nothing and she has too much going on to deal with me. Very crazy lady. When I do see her I am civil with her, but I despise her otherwise. I only get along with her for my future husband's benefit.
She rarely tells the truth, I doubt that anyone actually KNOWS her. She secretly got married in the last few years (I think) she told some people she got married and others that she isn't married. Her own son doesn't know if she's married or not, we live in the same town and no one ever met the man.
She has 5 different kids with 3 different men. I didn't think she was trashy until she started trying to fight me in her front yard and told my fiance that she assumed I was calling her trashy, which wasn't the case.
I have a problem with leaving things unresolved and awkward, so I told her I was sorry for my part and that I wasn't intentionally disrespecting her. She responded by saying that she wished she had reacted differently. She never apologized, in my opinion. I was on the receiving end of her overreaction and I apologized to her just to make it easier for both of us and that's all she has to say?
Do you think this will cause problems in the long run? What should I do next?
