My mother in law took away all the gold jewellery I got from my husband's side of the family during the wedding. She said she was taking it for safekeeping. She would give it to me when I had opened a locker in my name. I did. But when I told her that I had my own locker, she evaded the subject, and gave me a pair of light gold earrings, saying she had been saving those to give me after the wedding. My husband's side of family is large and they had each given me little gold things on my wedding. There was a little suitcase filled with gold jewellery. I have never seen the jewellery since. Our wedding was quite costly and entire wedding expenses were born by my father, even though he was fired from his job just months before the wedding. My father has no savings and is getting by on income generated through day trading since then. Our financial situation was known to my husband and in laws while planning the wedding. Still, they declined to divide the wedding expenses. Also, my husband accepted engagement ring from my side which was a lot expensive than mine was. And then gave me cheaper one. He did get me diamond earrings, and a watch for our engagement a day before our wedding. So I did not care about the wedding ring, and accepted the one my husband got me happily. What should I do? Should I keep quiet about the gold jewellery? I don't want tension in the family but I feel bad that my husband/his parents did not want to bear any of our wedding expenses. The cost of the jewellery he has given me is nuts in comparison with the total wedding cost. I am a working woman, and earn a decent salary. So, I just feel bad that my in laws would behave like this. Its not like I am a financial burden to them or their son. And they are reasonably well off financially. So, it just seems a little greedy on their part. I never thought that I would get married into a family that accepts dowry in any form (wedding expenses in my case). Feeling bad that I trusted my mother in law with the jewellery. I want to talk to my husband about this. I don't think this is right on my in laws' part, and don't want to encourage this. But I am not sure how to go about it. Please advise me friends.
