Dear Snarky – My Mom is Out For Revenge Against My Ex-Fiance

screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-9-20-38-amDear Snarky,

I think my mom is losing it. I recently got de-engaged and exactly one month later my ex-fiance got engaged to someone else. Surprise – he was cheating on me! This has made my mom c-r-a-z-y.

So far, she has managed to cancel the reception venue for the new couple by pretending to be the mother-of the-bride. She’s ghosting their wedding registries and by that I mean she’s gone in and set up registries  in the couple’s name so if you look online the “ghosted” one usually pops up first. For example, she set up one at Target that only has adult diapers, hemorrhoid and vag itch cream on it.

How do I get her to stop? At first I thought it was kind of funny, but now I’m worried she’s going to get herself in real trouble.

Signed, Okay With Not Being a Bride,

Dear Okay,

Umm, is it wrong I’m kind of loving your mother? I think she’s my spirit animal. That said, yes she needs to back away from the new couple and their nuptial business. The best way I think for this to happen is for you to sit down with your mom and let her know that you’re okay. In fact, you’re better than okay because you feel like you dodged a bullet by not marrying a man who has real issues with the truth, fidelity –  basically all the wedding vows.

I think once she knows that you’re happy and are moving on with your life she’ll let go of her need for revenge. Tell her that instead of being mad your whole family should be celebrating that you didn’t end up married to a huge loser.

    OMG I wished I had done some of this stuff when my daughter and her fiancé called off their wedding!!!!! Exact same story – he was cheating and then gets engaged to the other woman very quickly. The “ghosting” of the wedding registry – genius.

  2. Mama Bear says:

    Yes, Mom needs to stop now before the law gets involved, but I do admire her cleverness. Daughter needs to understand that when someone hurts or messes with our child, we turn into “Mama Bear”, and Heaven help the person who did this! Before either of my kids got married, they each dated someone I was less than thrilled with. I never let on until they were no longer dating that person. Each of them now knows that I do not care for them, and fear me, a little. And I am proud of that fear. 😉

    Not sure Snarky but I think your spirit animal may have rabies…..although, if she were my daughter he should definitely look over his shoulder. All kidding aside I’m glad she found out what a spineless weaselly liar he is before it was too late. You’re only as happy as your unhappiest child.

  4. Piper Reynolds says:

    I love this mom! Hysterical and I’m filing away the gift registry thing. But Snarky is right the former fiancée is lucky to be out of a relationship that would have ended badly no matter what. It’s good she got out now before marriage and kids.

  5. Carole says:

    Be thankful the louse showed his true colors before all that wedding money was spent.

    Now he is someone elses problem.

    Go out and find a good one and tell your Mom not to waste her energy on them any more – they just aren’t worth it.
