Future Mother-In-Law manipulates about money
My future MIL receives money from her son every month for bills. She's very negative to me about never having money to do anything with. I feel like she's "trying" to manipulate me just like her children. I'm sure she feels she's going to be "cut off" as soon as we marry. Her son will soon have his own family to support and has agreed to have a talk with her about it before we marry.
She has always been a Single mom and always reminds her children what shes gone through and makes them feel sorry for her...by getting them to do things for her.
I have also been a single mother for the past 5 years and know it's NOT a good excuse to make her children feel that way. Yes...it's been hard at times, but Always leave the money talk out of it and do something about it.
Hows the best way to go around this and not get attached by her negativity and manipulation since.....she will soon be my mother-in-law?
