    You have great insight into this and it's good you're standing your ground, marrying the woman you love and moving away. Unfortunately your mother seems to be acting out in theses petty ways taking it out on everyone/your fiance because she she is broken and wants the attention. She's losing control of you and that irritates her. This wedding and asking her participation/cooperation is a way for her to attempt to try to control things by manufacturing this chaos and the guilt trips. Keep your eye on the ball. Just proceed and let her fall on her own weight.

    I can really sympathize. It sucks.

    Plus, you know, they're family. I mean, at least for my part, I actually love my mom and sister and wish there was a way that I didn't have to minimize them in my life. I wish they didn't unite to form Superjerk whenever they got together.

    But I digress..... Point is, I find myself in a similar place, though circumstances are different.

    I wish you luck. It's a real pain in the ass.
