Me but I have only seen bits and pieces.  Watching the young tattooed couple now.  The Mum / MIL is a nasty piece of work.

I’m watching and so far I don’t like the mum of the tattooed couple

FM: Agree. Taking out a 3 week old baby without permission from the sleeping mum to leave her to wake up to no baby? b**ch. DH has said that this one and the rich blonde mum remind him of his own mother.

I think I heard later that the dad/son had said she could but still she is way OTT.

The Lebanese parents seem so lovely though I don't agree with them.

The other mum's all seem pretty awful.

Yeah I heard the horrible mum said that her son said she could take the baby out. He said "I've already apologised to her".

She's lucky that wasn't me. I would have called the cops and said she kidnapped my baby.

I would not go on this show to air our dirty laundry. no way. I don’t understand if the tattood couple don’t want anything to do with her, why does the mother’s blessing matter?

The cynic in me says they went on for the free/discounted wedding stuff and the publicity.

But also tattooed groom seems desperate to have his mum in his life, if she would just stop being so difficult.

On tv we only see one side, Who knows what has been going on between the two ladies for it to turn this ferral.

Watching again now.  I can understand Milly's mum fears about Micah.  The lad looks permanently stoned.

Joanne / Jojo mum to Jessie "she wasn't gay until she met you" would be funny if she didn't mean it.  She meant it :(

Tori's mum is soo condescending! James is a hothead but the mum's tone of voice is just ... argh!!

The mum and sister's behaviour is awful. They remind me of schoolyard mean girls.

Most of the couples I can see where the parents are coming from, but I think they're being excessively mean about it. Dannii and Denton are a terrible couple IMO, but that 'task' tonight was ridiculous.

Jojo and Jess though are a lovely couple. I really feel for them. It's so sad that her parents can't accept their marriage. I just can't see what the big deal is. If you don't want to 'sin' by having a gay marriage, don't have a gay marriage FFS.

I agree with you except I'd add Codie-Lea and Nathan seem good together.

#19 Paddlepop

Posted 09 October 2019 - 09:52 PM

Nathan's mother is so much like my DH's mother. A nasty controlling b**ch who has an unhealthy attachment to her son, like he's her partner instead of her son and hates any woman who dares to be involved with him because she might take him away. Nope, he'll run away. Nathan and Codie-Lea clearly love each other. Either the mum accepts Codie-Lea or she's never going to see her son or her granddaughter.

The mum and sister duo were so mean and nasty like a pair of teenagers. I love that it backfired on them and just made them look like fools while he got support from strangers and his fiancee. (Can't remember their names.)

Gogglebox just covered Bride and Prejudice. It was hilarious. It was at about the 5 minute mark.

I knew Dannii and Denton werent going to last. Those two are a trainwreck. They might convince him to come back for the show, but if those two get married, they'll divorce. The mother and sister are nasty little idiots.

I love Nathan and Codie-Lea! They are great for each other and there is genuine love there. His mum is psycho scary.

I like Jess, but not Jo-Jo. She said something about one of the other couples (maybe Micah?) that got my back up.

Tori and James I like a lot. I don't know how he deals with Tori's mum. She's a grade A b**ch.

Micah and Milly I'm still not sure about. I think they're both very young. I kinda agree with Micah though. I'm in the camp dope isn't a big deal. Heroin or cocaine or ice, absolutely. But not dope. I don't smoke it but know people that do, and it's not a big deal.

Jojo did say she didn't know she was gay until she et Jessie so it was sort of true.

I have never watched it before but am watching online cos so many people rave about it. lol

I don't know all their names but man, some of those mothers are just nasty.
I hope I am nicer when my kid finds a partner.

Nathan's mum is super nasty. She just comes across as a bitter nasty person who will not change her mind because she ALWAYS has to be right.

Mind you, I think the lie dectector test question she was asked wasn't well worded "Did you come here to mend fences with Codie-Lee and Nathan?" - it should have been broken into two questions (a) "Did you come here to mend fences with Nathan?" and (b) "did you come here to mend fences with Codie-Lee?" because she would have answered yes to the first question and no to the second.

At the point at which your child is engaged and weeks away from walking down an aisle, it's unlikely you are ever going to change their mind. Either get on board with it, smile and be included in the wedding, or bow out gracefully and keep your mouth shut. Even if the relationship is doomed, being right at that point in time isn't going to help your relationship with your child, it's only make your child pull further away.

As a parent of children old enough to be married or whatever they choose to be to whom they choose to be I can not imagine a day where I'd so publicly show my abhorrent behaviour to millions of people just because I was spitting the dummy about their choice.
The rich b**ch is my most detested person. She ONLY cares about how she will be seen if her daughter marries beneath her. Poor Tori.

I am more tolerant of Jo Jo's parents because they have been brainwashed for decades and are naive, not too worldly and stuck in the past.....I believe they will go to the wedding.

I agree.

But it's also about how they will be perceived in their own community if they support the marriage. They are effectively prioritising the opinions/approval of external people over their  their own child, which I think is so so sad. Saving face is more important to them than supporting their child. I wonder what the siblings are doing, and what their position is.
