My MIL even PAID my bf (now husband) to break up wth me. She would always ask "is she pregnant?" and when he'd say no she'd say "so leave her." One time when we did break up she actually gave him cash and told him to go out. Once I had to give a male friend a ride cause he was dropping his truck off at the shop and I ran into my FIL when we stopped to get breakfast and he TOOK PICS of us and gave them to my husband who was deployed at the time, just trying to start shit. They are always all into our business, but for the past few years she's actually been hugging me when she sees me, and I hate being hugged. She never sees the kids either. We're civil to each other, at best. Does this EVER get better?

Allergictostupid (love that user name lol), it is a feeling of rivalry and jealousy that causes that kind of reaction with in-laws. It is a natural reaction but some irrationally act on it. Your son is your precious baby boy and you are the very first woman in his life. Your relationship with him will set the standard by which all his future relationships will have to measure up to. So when another woman comes into his life, it is only natural that you will feel a little threatened by her. It is the same with fathers and daughters.
