Out of the Closet

Dear Short Answers:
An engaged friend took both moms to shop for the bridal gown. The groom’s mom took pictures of the chosen dress and is passing them around to family and friends. The bride is devastated that her gown is no longer a secret. What should she do?

Dear FOB:
We think the future mother-in-law was insensitive but “devastated” is a bit of an over-reaction.  Tell your friend that marriage and a new family will present many challenges and she should take this opportunity to let the M-I-L know how she feels now, with the objective of keeping the airways open for the future.
