Re: My in laws gifted me jewellery on my wedding and then my mother in law took it aw PersecutedDIL, Yes you are right. I am afraid of approaching this issue as it can backfire on me. I want to make sure this does not cause friction between DH and me. DH always supports his mother. It has been days since he promised to talk to MIL regarding this, and he still hasn't said anything. When I told him MIL had kept the jewellery, he said he was surprised, as MIL would never do such a thing. He says MIL must have forgotten about it. My point is if she did not forget to take it, why has she forgotten to return it? Why take it in the first place, when it is not hers? And if he really thinks she forgot to return it, why can't he tell her that she has forgotten it? If she really is as straight forward as DH seems to think, she won't mind being reminded. I will wait for him to talk to her for few days. If he doesn't, then I will ask her.
