FMIL ruins child-free trip, causing heartbroken mother to leave 💔

A mother of two young girls, who lost her husband to cancer, is struggling to get along with her fiancé's mother. The mother-in-law has a harsh view of single mothers, particularly those with low incomes. She has excluded the daughters from a number of family events, which has led to tension. Recently, she organized a 3-day family trip for adults only, and the mother reluctantly left her children with a sitter. However, when she arrived, she found her sister-in-law with her three children in tow. The mother-in-law had lied about the nature of the trip to prevent the mother from bringing her girls. Furious, the mother lashed out at her fiancé and his mother, before leaving and canceling her ticket. Her fiancé feels caught in the middle and blames her for causing the family to fight. However, the mother feels betrayed and heartbroken that her daughters were excluded yet again. Will this family be able to reconcile their differences and come together?
