It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing now. Today, we hear from “Tired of My Controlling MIL” who purchased a house with her fiancé from her soon-to-be in-laws who had a list of demands for ways they wanted the house to be maintained and decorated (including a guestroom saved just for them). Keep reading to see where things stand among them now.
Wow. I would love to know what was said… and what your fiancé feels about all this. I hope, for all of your sakes, that your relationship with your MIL-to-be improves in time. She’s going to be in your life for a long time. Wouldn’t it be better to be civil with each other, if not friendly?
If you’re someone I’ve given advice to in the past, I’d love to hear from you, too. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the original post, and let me know whether you followed the advice and how you’re doing now.
If you have a relationship/dating question I can help answer, you can send me your letters at email@example.com.
