Have You Seen the Mother in Law Email?

By Claire

The Telegraph and Daily Mail are today reporting on an email sent from a mother in law to her son’s bride. It’s not a nice story but one that gets me thinking and I’d love to hear your opinions on this one!

Allegedly the mother in law emailed her son’s fiancée with a list of complaints about her behaviour saying:

  • she lacked good manners
  • she should attend finishing school
  • she’d be a great candidate for Ladette to Lady
  • she didn’t try hard enough to fit in with the family
  • hiring a castle for the wedding was ‘brash, celebrity style behaviour’
  • her parents should have saved more for their daughter’s wedding

The girl was shocked to receive the email and forwarded it to a couple of friends… and so the story began – it’s now being shared all over the world!

So let me know what you think – who’s right here? Are you with the bride or does the mother in law have a point?

If you were in their shoes, what would you do now?
