I got married about 3 weeks ago and things are going just as they were before we "legalized it" and we couldn't be happier.<br><br>
However, my mom...I just don't know. Things were tense a few days before the wedding due to the fact that mom insisted on making the Vegan cupcakes (which is what she likes to do and it went well) and kept snapping at me and my husband due to the stress. She then started tripping over me marrying the guy (whom I've known for over 2 years). I know she is happy for us and that it's hard to see her eldest daughter go (my younger sister got married last year)<br><br>
Now that we are married, it seems like things are ...different between us. We have always been close, but now she's "pouting" because I gave away a TV she wanted (that was from my ex). I almost dread talking to her.<br><br>
I want to be close, but at the same time...sigh, I dunno. Maybe it's time for a few things to change. I like my new life...a lot. She's still my mom and will always be my mom. But I can't ...sigh, I don't know how to explain it.<br><br>
Anyway, if you have any "words of wisdom" for this newlywed about the changing relationship with her mother, please feel free. And for what it's worth, thanks for letting me vent <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

My relationship with my sister changed quite a bit around the time before and after my wedding. But it's gone back to normal now. It just took a little while.

I'm not married but this was my first thought. Maybe she feels really scared that now that you are married she's going to "lose" her daughter somehow.

My relationship with my mother never recovered post-wedding, but I also got married shortly after moving abroad and subsequently lived abroad for six years, only seeing my mother 3-4 times during that whole time. So I think that played more of a role than actually getting married.
