I have to admit right away, this is an old story — posted five-years-ago. But after just discovering the magnificent "Just No MIL" subreddit, in which victimized in-laws post tales of their most toxic mother-in-laws, I felt there was no choice but to bring this story to your attention.
This story has it all: toxic family, wine, Thanksgiving, weddings, and revenge. As Theloniou5 writes:
"This story is about my friends MIL, and her wedding. Strap in guys, this is a wild ride in which I did THE THING that got me banned from any of her family functions. (Plus a few threats of dismemberment and bodily harm)."
Let's begin at the top, where optimism and joy reign supreme.
A good friend of mine from university was getting married! She had been a couple with her boyfriend since junior year of college, through her 2 years in the peace corps, and currently after her return to this continent. 6 years in total.
