  • Yes I can. And do. My mother in law is a wonderful, loving, giving woman. She absolutely refuses to butt in but is always there to listen to us. She says she's no expert on marriage or child rearing so she won't tell us how to be married or how to deal with our kids. I love her to pieces.

  • I can! My mil is so sweet, and not pushy. I know I am very lucky! She adopted me into the family after meeting me for the first time after about 5 min!

  • I truly love my MIL. If it wasn't for her I wouldn't have the Husband and kids I have! She has never once stepped on my toes and tells me all the time that she's proud of the Wife and Mother I am. Even if I didn't care for her I still would have respect for her for raising such an amazing Man.

  • My MIL & I have a history so no, I can't say that I love her. I don't respect the choices she had made in her life & after we caught her loser BF smoking weed in our garage, we refuse to let them stay in our home. She always has an excuse for not seeing us or our children--"Oh, I bought Christmas presents but didn't have the money to mail them." Um, hello, it has been 1 1/2 years since then & she still doesn't have the postage money? Why even say crap like that? We have never demanded that she send us anything or even asked her for anything so why the lies? Ok, I'm venting now, lol. I wish things were different. On the plus side, I love my step-MIL.

  • I can't say that I love my MIL as I do not really know her. My husband's family does not come around, even during the holidays and on birthdays they are scarce, so I don't really know any of them. Also , my MIL also speaks Spanish and I do not so it is very difficult for me to communicate with her when I do see her.
