I have read ssssooooo many times that people complain about their in-laws and how they don't get along. I was just wondering why not? Was it always like that from the beginning of the relationship with the significant other? Has anyone ever TRIED to improve the relationship with the in-law? I just ask, because I get along GREAT with my mother-in-law. She thinks of me as her own daughter (she has all boys), but we hit it off since the beginning...so I just cannot phathom why so many people don't get along? So, was there a particular event that caused your strained relationship? Thanks for helping me to understand!Answer Question

I don't get along w/my MIL for the following reasons - she's an alcoholic (in denial) she's controlling, manipulative, she'll throw tantrums/guilt trips just to get what she wants - and if she doesn't get what she wants when she wants it, she'll make your life miserable, she's an all around toxic/narcissistic person who has caused LOTS of problems in my marriage. We were in marriage counseling 4 months after we got married because she couldn't "deal" w/the fact that DH is a big boy and not her baby boy anymore. The kids and I have no relationship with her at all and thats just fine with me.

I cant relate to those people.. Im single, but im still VERY close to my boys grandmother. She wishes her and her son were still together instead of him being with the ho-bag he cheated on me with. My ex hates that we are so close, but he will have to deal. He already ruined our relationship, no way im going to let him ruin another.
