Fiance and I had dinner with Toxic Dad and Stepmom the other night. Stepmom, who is not toxic but quite clueless, decided to ask some *very* invasive questions about my and Fiance's marriage counseling session. I tried to beandip her, but Dad called me on it and things got awkward.
SM: So Shatzie, is your premarital counseling teaching you how to be a good submissive wife?
ME: [faintly boggled expression] Hey, I wonder if the waiter is going to bring some more water out soon. I'm thirsty!
SM: Are you learning about X, Y, and Z issues? [X Y and Z were all of an *extremely* personal nature]
ME: [nearly exclaiming something rude, but holding back and smiling sweetly instead] How's that burrito, Stepmom?
DAD: Are you trying to change the subject, Shatzie? Your stepmother asked you a question.
ME: A very invasive question. Fiance, how was work today?
Dad and Stepmom would.not.let.it.rest. I tried bean dipping more, but conversation became very stilted. Was there a better way to handle this?
