Question: I was very discouraged as I watched my son's step mom corner him, his fiance, me, my husband, and my my son's future mother-in-law at their engagement party. She set up camp at my parent's kitchen table, and ambushed everyone who dared to walk past. She covered many topics. She cried and demanded that my son make his father the Best Man. Not only that she expected that he would put some or all of her children in his wedding party.
Then it was on to me. I originally invited she and his father to share in the rehearsal dinner plans. She immediately took over. She has never offered to pay anything, and it is doubtful that she will. After all they have not paid for other things such as a college education for our son, money down on his house, graduation issues, etc. I offered to share in the planning, but she just took control and is causing havoc. She has purchased table decorations, etc. without even discussing anything with me, or most importantly, the couple. After all, my wishes for the dinner and their wishes. When she approached me at the party, I listened and did not speak. Then she started insisting that things be changed that the children had planned, and said it must be done now. I politely said I would discuss it with her another time, but not at the engagement party. She got up and began to pursue all involved to settle it right there. I got up and left saying that I refused to discuss it at the party. She then went to the others and said that things needed to be changed, and that I was aweful and she could not ever talk with me which is nothing but lies. After all, I invited her. She had my daughter in tears, because my daughter did not like to hear her bad mouthing me. Of course I told my daughter to only remember her brother and what he had to go through, and forget any discomfort that might be caused to us. I only want the children to have a wedding without issues and I do everything possible to keep it that way. What should I do? What should be her role or even his father's role regarding the rehearsal dinner considering they have never really supported our son before now? My son says you can't jump in a marathon at the end. Thanks for your help.
