Exactly. A fortune teller's skill is cold reading and should get to know his customers and tell them what they like to hear. I know James Randi would agree. But the dirty thing is, *if* something bad *does* happen, the person who insisted going against the fortune teller's advice will get the blame for the bad thing.

Its so obvious! But my ex gf was surprised and sad everytime it happened, usually crying about it. They said the same thing everytime!

To some people the "Feng Sui" and "fortune telling" are simply a business or scam. In Christianity, it is consider as witchcraft (or against God's will).
Indeed, there are some people put all their faith on Feng Sui than on God. Well, not everyone here is Christian, maybe some are Muslim or Atheist and etc.
Anyway, being a married couple, do not let others control your decision/future plans and etc. You can ask some advises or ideas (no problem with that) but still at the end of the day it is you(and your husband) should decides and nobody else. You guys can explain your side to her (MIL) in polite ways. But most of the time (in reality), this is hard to do if the couples lives in the In-law's house.

The golden rule applies here: she who has the gold makes the rules. It's her cash. If it was yours, I would recommend you ignore the dictates of the scam artist... I mean the fortune teller.
