  • Jealousy, My Mil hates the fact that her son has his own family now. Its actually sad and pathietic.

  • They don't want their little baby boys to depend on another woman for support.

  • I don't know but they sure are! Well at least mine is. I think she can't bear the thought that my fiance is going to be out on his own and isn't going to need her anymore. She also feels threatened I think, because I have tons of family that live nearby that I am extrememly close with, while her side lives far away. Ugh whatver it is it sure is irritating!

  • My mother-in-law is amazing!!!
    I really lucked out with her...

    All of the boyfriends I've ever had in the past have had crazy mommas!!! That's usually one of the many reasons why we broke up.... I don't know how some of you ladies can live with crazy mother in laws.

  • MILs can be a blessing and a curse.  Mine lives only about 2 1/2 miles from me.  My husband travels for work and so...I get calls nearly EVERY day from her, wondering if I'd talked to him that day, how he was, what's the money situation, is he ok...on and on and on.  And if I don't answer?  Then she's over at my house wonderring why I'm not answering.  She also has a tendency to tell me what I should be doing.  It gets irritating, but at the same time, they HAVE helped us a lot, and I'm grateful.  It's a fine line....
