While many consider it to be an age-old myth, many girlfriends, fiances, and wives have claimed that there is truth to the legend and mothers-in-law are the worst of the worst.

There are even entire movies and series based on this belief that any significant other's mother will despise you and make your life miserable no matter what you do.

While some people might not be able to handle a physical, face-to-face break-up and then choose to use a different medium - phone or email, they usually still have the guts to do it themselves.

Taking to social media, Lisa explained that the 21st of July 2021 was the anniversary of the day her boyfriend's mother called her and informed her that her son, Lisa's lover, was involved in a car accident and that he had died on the scene of the crash.

Adding insult to injury, she also told Lisa she would not be invited to the funeral because the couple was not married.

Unbelievable, right?

Well, that is what the general consensus was after many read the tweet.

Is it all one big elaborate lie? Possibly.

Even though the drama is quite entertaining, we do hope that no one has ever had to actually experience a break-up like this.

Hopefully, Lisa will find her one true love soon.
