The Toast that Tore a Family Apart 🥂💔

In a whirlwind of drama, our 'Runaway Bride' found herself fleeing her own engagement dinner, unable to bear the constant talk of future grandkids from her overbearing future mother-in-law. Despite her clear stance on living a childfree life, a result of a heartbreaking past, her pleas fell on deaf ears. The final straw? A toast to 'future grandchildren'. This led to a hasty exit, a fiery phone call, and a night of tears. As the dust settles, we're left wondering - where do they go from here? Let's see what the internet has to say about this intense situation... 🍿

"Your MIL is only part of your problem." NTA but proceed with caution. 😱

"Absolutely NTA. 🙌 Consider breaking off the engagement."

"NTA Do NOT marry this guy. He will always put his mother first and he will never have your back. If you ignore my advice and stay with him, use long-term birth control (implant or iud) that can't be tampered with and maintain your own bank account for your income/savings. Because his mother can't be trusted not to mess with your birth control and your fiancee will give his mother your savings if she asks for it." - A cautionary tale of a controlling mother-in-law and a spineless fiance 😱
