The mother obviously didn't want the daughter to get married but what an awful thing to say

She was either being brutally honest or she had a much better idea of the fiancée's character than her daughter did.

I think it sounds like such a hurtful thing to say. I am acutely aware of how ugly I am but it still hurts when someone feels the need to point it out.  It would hurt even more if it was my Mum who said it.

No one is ugly. If people would only look beyond the outer shell and see the beauty within.

Mother possibly knew best but I am pleased she was not my mum  :o :o

Some of us have no internal beauty either.

I give the mother the benefit of the doubt and say she was deliberately trying to put the chap off.
