In a recent Reddit post, a concerned individual sought advice after feeling overwhelmed by the intrusive behavior of her fiancé’s parents. Here’s the full story.
They’re Getting Married Soon
Jill, aged 25, and her fiancé Jack aged 29, got engaged last year. They’re planning on getting married in September.
Moving Into a New House
Last month, they moved into a new house, and Jill said it feels like their lives are coming together.
Her In-Laws Live Near Them
However, the main problem is that her future mother and father-in-law live only three blocks away.
They Are Intrusive
They have always treated Jill like family; she says they are wonderful people, yet they are incredibly intrusive.
They Tend to Show Up Unexpectedly
They’ll show up unexpectedly, and while Jill’s cooking, they bring food over. On her days off, her father-in-law will come over to fix stuff. His father calls them daily, and they eat dinner with them at least thrice a week.
“Everybody Loves Raymond”
Her fiancé’s mother even offered to clean her laundry. Jill said it is like being a character in the “Everybody Loves Raymond” show.
She Loves Them, but She’s Had Enough
On the surface, everything seems good, and it is. She appreciates their help. But, she says she wants to care for and cook for her fiancé and not just be a doll in the house.
He Understands How She Feels
Although Jill’s fiancé gets along well with his family, he understands why she gets irritated when his parents help him too much.
Things Took a Turn
The problem began when her mother-in-law brought dinner as Jill was preparing her own meal. Jill told her to leave. She told her that she needed to stop bringing food over and let her take care of it.
They Are Not Welcome Anymore
Jill went on to say that she and her husband are not welcome in the house anymore. His mother was offended and left.
She Said Sorry
Even though Jill was hurt by the incident, too, she said sorry and said she lost her temper in the heat of the moment.
Did She Go Too Far?
Jill’s fiance was furious with her, and her sister-in-law texted her and said she was a jerk. Jill said that although she tried to apologize, her future mother-in-law was having none of it.
She’s Doesn’t Know What to Do
Now she feels like she messed up her marriage and doesn’t know what to do.
