My fiance and I have been together for three years. He is in his early 40's, I am in my late 20's, we are both Roman Catholic and have been since baptism as infants. Our relationship is great (most) of the time - that is until his mother, who is also his next door neighbor gets involved.
The woman is IMPOSSIBLE to get along with. :banghead:
She is the most judgemental, arrogant, and self-absorbed person I have ever come across in my life. I have taken both religious and psychological approaches but nothing works. Nothing I ever do is right, good enough or worth anything in her eyes. She slanders my name to their family and friends because I am so much younger than her son (my fiance) and because of the fact that I don't come from a wealthy family.
I understand that she is 70 years old, and she will NEVER change her personality. What steps can I take to either get along with her better or should I just "kill her with kindness"? This woman will be my neighbor one day! (Help me!! ;) )This has been a major downfall in my relationship because I've never had to deal with a person on this level.
That's only the beginning but I'll spare everyone!! ha ha!
Thanks so much!
