Mostly people experience struggles with their in-laws, but, somehow, they try their best to make it work for the sake of the groom. This story, however, is about to change it all as this bride-to-be discovers her future mother-in-law doing something that she had never seen coming. In fact, it was so surprising and unexpected, that she even contemplated to take legal action. There was no going back right now, despite the bride-to-be trying her best to have a relationship with her future mother-in-law. Find out on the next pages what left the bride-to-be speechless.
Tracey decided to share her confrontation with her fiancé’s mother on Reddit, despite the fact that she had only a few months until her own wedding in Colombia. She had enough on her mind already, as planning a wedding is never easy. But, Tracey actually felt the need to share this story about her mother-in-law on the internet. Tracey and the elder woman had clashed on several occasions before the unforgivable act… What could she possibly have done that left Tracey speechless?
On an unconditional level, Tracey made a point of remaining mature and pleasant during their arguments. She tried her best for her future husband. But, finding her future mother-in-law messing with her wedding gown, on the other hand, was simply unbearable. Tracey had broken many lines previously, but this was one she couldn’t forgive or believe. She had tried for a long time to be polite, but this was beyond decency. Perhaps you’d like to know what happened.
Meant to Be
Much of the functioning of a happy marriage is built on one’s relationship with their significant other’s family. When Tracy agreed to her beloved Rick’s proposal, all she wanted was a healthy bond with her fiancé’s mother. But, as the story goes, there was one matriarchal character that made Tracey struggle to bite her tongue at practically every turn. For better or worse, when you marry someone, you also marry their family, and Tracey had to find a way to live with this and cope with it.
Weddings are infamously stressful events to plan, which increases the couple’s stress. As a result, couples frequently turn to their friends and family to help them cope with the stress of this busy period. You’d want to believe that people closest to you will try their best to help you and take some load off your plate, but these loved ones frequently make everything that much more difficult to bear. Just like Tracey was experiencing with her mother-in-law.
When viewing Rick and Tracey’s social media sites, the viewer is struck by the illusion of a perfect match. They enjoyed posing together in romantic and happy situations, as if they were the happiest couple on the planet. However, the illusion of social media frequently conceals a harsher truth, one that people work hard to keep hidden from the general public. Indeed, before the tragedy destroying their hopes, the couple were devoted to making a life together…
High Fashion Gown
It may be difficult to believe that something as innocent as a wedding gown would be the final nail in the coffin of this extraordinary story. This is supposed to be one of the most spectacular pieces of clothing a person ever wears, making them feel like a shining queen, even if just for one day. Tracey, of course, desired nothing less than the most magnificent gown for her wedding day, and couldn’t wait to pick her ideal dress and wear it on her special day with her beloved future husband.
Tracey had her heart set on an exquisite couture atelier gown by Galia Lahav. This was the location where prominent celebrities such as Beyoncé bought their particular wedding outfits, but also other stars getting their dresses for events. She had decided that she could only accept a gown fit for the stars, and she was not going to waste this once-in-a-lifetime chance to dazzle her friends and family. Not surprisingly, Tracey’s particular design went for $11,000! Unquestionably an extravagant choice.
Despite the high prices, many brides justify the price by emphasizing the importance of their wedding day. There are many people who have taken out large loans in order to make their wedding day as flawless as possible. While we do not recommend that you become bankrupt before even beginning your life with your partner, a wedding gown should be excellent. This, of course, depends on every woman and the amount they can spend for their dress. Ladies, make this a day to remember!
The Ideal Venue
Many engaged couples work hard to find a local wedding venue, as it is the most convenient to have a local venue when it comes to travelling back and forth. Tracey and Rick, on the other hand, envisioned Colombia as the ideal location. “We’re planning to get married in Colombia in December, and of course, I’m beyond excited,” Tracey continued in her Facebook status. You may be wondering why they chose such a remote location. Clearly, there was something there they couldn’t afford to miss.
Tracey had planned her dream wedding and had persuaded Rick to agree to the fantasy getaway. Once he had finally agreed with her, Tracey couldn’t wait to continue the planning. “It was going to be a destination wedding for us,” she explained, “and I was very delighted that I was able to talk him into having one.” Rick appeared to be the type of man who would go to any length to make his partner happy. However, there was one significant family member who was skeptical about the plan…
Gina, Rick’s mother, was not shy in expressing her disapproval with a far wedding venue. Tracey observed Gina’s inability to understand the couple’s desire to marry in a place where no one spoke English! This rather prejudiced fear, however, was not going to discourage Tracey from following her marriage destiny. Gina’s concerns were dismissed by Tracey as closed-minded pettiness. This was simply the start of the problem… She didn’t expect this to unfold the way it was going to be…
Gina expressed her concerns about potential safety risks in the South American country, in addition to the costs involved, in addition to the language issues. Americans have a widespread fear of South American countries, believing that they are filled with criminals and kidnappers. If only they’d known… Despite raising some legitimate concerns about their plan, Tracey couldn’t shake the idea that Gina was not looking out for their best interests like she had hoped for.
Not Seeing Eye to Eye
Tracey had the feeling that Gina would be disapproving of any wedding plans that the pair considered. She was a stubborn and pessimistic woman who saw no good in anything Tracey suggested. It became clear that the two women did not see eye to eye. While it was unfortunate that the two women were often in conflict with each other, Tracey explained that Gina was never especially fond of her. This, of course, hurt her as she was the mother of his fiancé, and had hoped for them to get along well.
“She’s polite and very ‘fake’ friendly,” Tracey wrote of Gina’s polite but insincere affection for her future daughter-in-law. Tracey would have preferred it if Gina had been openly hostile to her instead of the sickeningly sweet pretenses. Such quarrels appeared to be more serious than simple incompatibility. Between them, a deep and seemingly unresolvable anger was developing. But there was something more that was going to drive the two even further apart…
Gina and Tracey’s conflict appeared to come from their shared love for Rick, as it does in so many other relationships. Rick’s heart and life were shaped by the two women, his future wife and his mother. When a man has an overbearing mother, practically every lady he brings home will be unsuitable. There have been many relationships destroyed as a result of the meddling of a mother who wants possession of her son…and this time it was happening again.
Tracey went on to describe some very intimate moments between her fiancé and his mother. “She’ll sit on my fiancé’s lap, tuck his hair behind his ear, and cut his food for him,” Tracey explained. “On one occasion, I really witnessed her feeding him….in public.” While we’ve all heard of “mommy’s boys,” this is a particularly strange and odd “relationship.” This didn’t sit well with Tracey, as the mother should give his son some space and let him have his relationship with his future wife. But, this wasn’t going to happen any time soon.
There’s a Limit
Tracey, as anyone could imagine, was eager to clear the air before the big day. She understood that if she didn’t make the mature decision to reconnect with Gina, she’d have to put up with a lifetime of petty remarks and fake kindness. This was a situation that neither the bride-to-be and the future daughter-in-law could bear. Gina, thankfully, began acting more appropriately when Tracey expressed her worries to her fiancé. Or at least, that’s what she had thought.
She didn’t feel like including Gina in most of the big day’s planning, because she felt Gina didn’t care about the two getting married at all. Gina began acting like a spoiled brat when she discovered she had been placed on the bench. Gina, as expected, began complaining to her son about being sidelined. These tensions reached a boiling point on a crucial occasion. How was Rick supposed to handle both of the women in his life? He couldn’t exactly pick a side either. What was he going to do?
The New Deal
Rick found himself in the middle of a civil war. He had both women shouting in his ears, and he had to play the part of a UN ambassador once more. Rick decided it was time to address his mother after Tracey’s heartbreaking revelations. Rick felt himself pulled between his overbearing mother and his unhappy fiancé as he had been through a lot in this difficult relationship, and he was tired of it. This had to change before they were going to get married, as it would ruin the whole idea of their special day.
Rick eventually realized that he was responsible for ensuring the happiness of his growing family. Without his father at his side, he realized he would have to be the guy in control of the growing family. Simply put, he put his mother in her place and, as a result, they were able to set healthy boundaries between them. Tracey praised his idea and how it prevented these strange things from happening again. So far, so good. At least, that’s what it looked like, until his mother had planned another thing.
The morning that would turn the couple’s lives upside down began like any other. The sun was shining brightly, the sky was clear, and Tracey was optimistic about the day ahead. They noticed an approaching car as they looked out the window of their dining room. Were they expecting anyone? That’s when they saw that the dreadful mother-in-law had arrived to view their new home. They were, however, overjoyed to show her around their new home and lives together.
Gina was warmly welcomed into the couple’s wonderful home. But she didn’t say anything to them, instead staring about their house in despair. They couldn’t understand why she was so frightened when they were so proud of their place. Gina, sadly, had nothing positive to say. In reality, she became openly hostile, especially towards Tracey. Gina, if the Reddit thread is to be believed, targeted Tracey in an unwarranted way. This is something the couple didn’t expect, since they had settled their relationship.
So, what had Tracey done to upset Gina? To begin, Tracey’s engagement ring was a present from Rick! This item was simply too extravagant, according to the enraged mother-in-law. While we all know Tracey had a taste for the better things in life, Gina had no right to say anything nasty about her. Even mothers must learn when to bite their tongue, and Gina was the unfiltered type. Tracey then calmly informed Gina that the ring was moissanite, which was significantly less expensive than a diamond. Tracey’s post quoted Gina’s tirade about how foolish it was to spend so much money when African children were famished, as well as the terrible nature of “blood diamonds.” Tracey wanted to label Gina a hypocrite, despite the fact that the feisty old lady wore a lot of expensive diamond jewelry herself!
Gina’s complaints extended further than the ring to the house the couple had just purchased. She was having a hissy fit, waving her arms and yelling at the pair for being so careless with their savings. She accused them of lacking the common sense and fiscal responsibility required to raise children successfully and wisely together. Gina simply couldn’t handle the cost of getting this lavish home. Gina criticized them for being so flashy, saying it was unworthy of her family. Tracey defended their decision once more, saying that this “townhouse” had been purchased at a lower cost. Gina was not even listening, not believing or even contemplating that her son and his partner had bought beautiful things through crafty deals. However, Gina had only actually started, so things did not calm down.
Things were about to get really bad, to the point that even the most calm of people would be furious. Tracey remained calm and collected in this situation. Gina appeared to have reached a new low when she decided to change the subject of the conversation to something that should never be discussed. Gina decided that humiliating Tracey for gaining weight was a good idea, and she encouraged her to reduce weight before the big day. Tracey was honest in her Reddit post, “I’m getting fat. I need to watch my calorie intake so that I can ‘fit into my outfit.’ Meanwhile, Future [MIL] is bragging about her diet and how elegant and slenderizing her mother of the bride gown is.” Gina, on the other hand, was bragging about her slimming efforts and how beautiful she looked in her own gown. With her obsession with focusing the emphasis on herself, she appeared to believe she was the one getting married.
Business as Usual
Tracey was taken aback by being talked to so harshly, despite the fact that Gina had made some hurtful comments before. She couldn’t believe that she could go this far. Despite her occasional attempts to contact Tracey, Gina was generally harsh and disrespectful to her future daughter-in-law, which she had accepted. Tracey’s only wish was for the two to come to an acceptable agreement for the sake of her son. Gina could at least pretend to love Tracey even if she never would.
Impossible to Please
Gina’s obvious disapproval of Tracey and Rick’s devotion to each other was at the core of it all. If Rick would not listen to his mother’s advice, she would do her best to mould Tracey into a suitable wife for her beautiful son. Nothing ever seemed to be good enough. Gina’s desire to turn Tracey into the type of partner considered proper for Rick was another clear goal. Rick, thankfully, had the sense to recognize how heated the situation between the two women had become. He then decided to ask Tracey for help in moving a bed into the empty guest room. If you can’t beat them, stay as far away from them as possible! While it would have been better if the difficult three had got together to work out their disagreements, this was only a temporary solution.
Tracey was clearly relieved to put some distance between herself and the bitter Gina, heading into a room far away from the grumpy woman. Gina, on the other hand, was the type of monster you couldn’t escape until you moved nations. She was as vengeful and aggressive as a tiger. Tracey’s problems, on the other hand, were just getting started, as a thirty-minute visit to the master bedroom proved. When Tracey entered the bedroom to use the toilet, her jaw fell when she saw what was waiting for her. Gina was attempting to put on her wedding dress! “What do I find but Future MIL fighting to lift my dress over her head BUT WAS FREAKING STUCK!” cried Tracey. What on Earth had led Gina to commit such a horrible crime? Tracey felt as if she had been punched in the stomach.
“I said, ‘What the heck?!'” Gina immediately began stuttering, ‘Oh my God! OH MY GOODNESS! OH MY GOD!'” The old lady had been caught in the act, and she was flapping around like a crazy, squawking bird trapped in the dress. Even Gina could not have predicted this event. If this incident wasn’t weird enough for any drama seeker, just wait until you see what happens next. Tracey just had a few moments to understand what was going on. She quickly approached Gina and told her to remove her hands from her luxury haute beaded dress immediately! This was easier said than done, as the old lady was completely stuck! Tracey was forced to help the wild woman in removing it. Tracey was worried that the beautiful dress would break, so she was in a state of anxious care and desperation.
Forced to Help
Tracey was obviously concerned about the safety of her gown, afraid that the sheer back would rip while attempting to help Gina out of her gown. Gina was not cooperating either, having gone into a panic when she was seen trying on Tracey’s dress, which was caused when she became trapped in it. As we will soon know, even the finest intentions and preparations can go awry… The usually simple act of removing a dress becomes a furious struggle against the fabric. There was then a terrible ripening sound. Tracey was heartbroken after seeing the damage done by Gina, who had ripped a hole through the sheet material while attempting to escape. “It was all for nothing since she managed to scratch her way through the back of the dress, completely destroying the sheer material,” Tracey added regretfully.
“She damaged the dress’s side zipper and left a dirty footprint on the train.” Tracey’s skepticism and irritation were understandable in the midst of this tragedy. Tracey, understandably, was expecting some answers! But was the ill-mannered woman about to accept responsibility for her irresponsible behavior? Tracey, who was holding the destroyed pieces of her incredibly expensive dress, wasn’t in the mood for an apology at this point. Tracey couldn’t find the words to explain how upset she was to see her precious dress torn to pieces. She had to hold her head in order to conceal the screech she needed to let out. She was shaking with sadness, like if someone she cared about had been struck right in front of her eyes. Gina had caused her a lot of irritation and pain, but this was something she couldn’t let go of.
Gina had been the source of much of Tracey’s pain before, but this new level of devastation was unbearable. Tracey couldn’t understand how somebody could be so cruel. Tracey, unsurprisingly, held Gina accountable right away. In a shameless and ridiculous act of jealousy and possessiveness, she had gone out of her way to badly offend her future daughter-in-law. So, what was Gina’s reaction to Tracey’s demands? Tracey was simply curious as to what possessed Gina to try on her dress in the first place. “She responded that she was only checking to see if the dress would fit me; because if the dress fitted her, it would definitely fit me,” Tracey added. Gina had not only destroyed Tracey’s dress, but she had also body shamed her! To make matters worse, Gina began insulting Tracey once more.
“If it didn’t fit her, I knew I had some work to do.” Tracey was clearly aware that it fit her, having previously fit her perfectly. It seemed as if the dress had been custom-made for her. Gina had crossed the line for the final time, and Tracey was on the brink of disrespecting her. We’ve heard from the two females, but how did the story’s man react to the drama? Tracey was not alone in her surprise and anger at Gina’s careless behavior. Rick, who was absolutely confused by his mother’s act, also reacted to it. He was well aware that his mother’s violation of the dress was not a good idea. She’d always gone to great efforts to end his prior relationships, but he couldn’t allow her to do it this time. After all, this was his life’s love.
Gina had also brought a bouquet of flowers to the room, which added to her strange and unsettling behavior. Apparently, the older lady was pretending to be the bride! Isn’t this all quite sinister? Gina clearly had a troubling bond to her son and would marry him if it meant he would never leave her. Unfortunately, Gina’s terrible behavior did not end there! In Tracey’s opinion, the very least Gina could do was pay for the outfit to be repaired. Unfortunately, Gina’s reluctance to do the right thing by the marriage made even this simple request seem overly ambitious. It was an extremely expensive gown, and Gina might have been unwilling to pay for its repairs, especially given how critical she had been of its price in the first place. Gina’s next step is beyond understanding.
Tracey explained Gina’s reluctance to help, saying, “She hasn’t offered to pay for any of the dress repairs.” “A piece of the train has been ripped apart.” Tracey had no idea how much the repairs would cost without the help of an experienced seamstress. Gina not only refused to pay, but she also planned a secret plan for the couple on the same day! Gina could have simply apologized for what she had done, but she did not. She’d add fuel to the fire by taunting Tracey for spending so much money on the dress in the first place! Give yourself a pat on the back if you predicted Gina’s reaction based on her previous scolding! When someone wrongs you, no matter how horribly, you expect them to do all in their power to set things right.
“In the meantime, she’s lecturing me on spending so much money on a wedding dress,” she recalled. “Clearly, the problem she had getting into the dress was a sign to get something less spectacular and expensive.” There are plenty more respectful ways to make your point. You should never destroy something valuable that does not even belong to you. The younger woman then decided that a plan was needed. Tracey returned to Reddit for more advise, unable to contain her anger. She considered bringing the law down on Gina’s head for the damages, but decided that a message board discussion was required. Rick didn’t want his fiancée and mother to be involved in a court struggle, especially just weeks before their wedding! What did the internet have to say about the whole thing?
Tracey was right to believe that Gina owed her money for destroying her dress. “I realize it’s only a garment,” the bride-to-be explained, “but this goes beyond the dress.” The bride-to-be thought that this was a wrongdoing that went beyond money. Gina needed to swallow her pride and apologize for what she’d done. The Redditors who read her article agreed with her views. Aside from Gina’s supporters, there were many Redditors who were critical of her performance. Posts like these typically attract a lot of attention, and Tracy’s story quickly traveled around the internet. If Gina believed she had done nothing wrong, many of people disagreed and expressed their disapproval on social media. Would Gina ever find out about the online storm? There were many Redditors that were discussing this problem at the time.
One particularly enraged Redditor replied to Tracey’s post, saying Gina could pick between reimbursing her or staying at home for the wedding. Would you give this ultimatum to your future mother-in-law if you were Tracey? While this may seem harsh, it was an extreme situation. Aside from the vengeful Redditors, there were many who simply wanted to voice their disgust with the situation. When they read about Gina’s shenanigans, one user almost vomited! This was only one of the terrible replies to Tracey’s story. Aside from the protests, how did Tracey’s desire for revenge turn out? The women had stopped talking to each other, and they had reached a tense stalemate. Tracey returned to Reddit after a time of uncertainty that lasted several months to inform those who were following her story.
Tracey and Rick had both agreed (under Tracey’s command, of course) that his mother’s invitation had been withdrawn. Rick had then claimed to follow her instruction, but Tracey soon came to realize that her man had failed to deliver on his promise. Rick had now reached a point in the two women’s conflict where he had to pick a side. It really seemed like their relationship was now on the rocks! Rick had also disappointed Tracey for the last time by failing to follow her directions, putting their relationship in danger. Tracey and Rick’s wedding date was unfortunately canceled. However, the couple is still in a relationship and is committed to fostering their commitments to each other. “I want to be able to go the distance with him, but I simply don’t think I can while she’s in the picture,” the fiancée explained.
Months passed, and Tracey decided it was time to tell Reddit what else had happened. She informed her fans with a detailed update on Gina’s status. Rick’s determination to avoid his mother was the only positive outcome of this situation. She had successfully indoctrinated him into her wishes, threatening to leave him if he did not comply. Gina was clearly still on the prowl. Tracey was obsessively checking through her partner’s messages, so she knew whether he was being honest with her or not! Rick appeared to be still a suspect. While most women resort to such behavior to determine whether their partner is cheating, Rick’s mother was not to be contacted in this situation! As if this wasn’t strange enough, things were about to get even stranger.
Everything or Nothing
Tracey was now ready to finish up her update on her situation with Gina. Her future mother-in-law was doing everything she could to reach out! What good could this new development bring after nearly a year of no communication and deep resentment? It would have been fantastic if the two women could have started negotiating and, maybe, put the past behind them for good. What could the older lady possibly say to Tracey? Gina definitely had nothing nice to say. In fact, she was acting quite psychotically! She would call the couple at the crack of dawn, leave insulting notes beneath their front door, and text them all manner of nastiness. “My fiance and I usually go shopping on Wednesday nights,” Tracey added. Gina would even follow them about on their planned Wednesday evening shopping sessions! This was all getting a little too insane.
