  • Mine isn't. I love mine. She's an absolute sweetheart. She helps me so much without thinking she's going to get anything in return. She's always welcomed me with open arms.

  • Not all are. Who knows your MIL may wonder the same thing about YOU!

  • My MIL is a wonderful lady. She is very unique. I love her as if she were my own mother. I have had a couple of problems with things she says to me and to my husband, but I bite my tongue because it isn't worth us fighting. My MIL has told me how my DH's ex still loves and cares for him and she knows my dh feels the same. She has told my DH that he is wrong for going for custody of his own daughter, even though the mother is a drug addict and those two things are all she has offended me with.

  • I've never met mine, lol.

    Maybe she's a protective mother who thinks that nothing is good enough for her son. Maybe she's just miserable with life in general.
    Some people just suck.

  • Good lord I don't know! I have been married twice and been stuck with the largest of a$$wipes both times. My current MIL is just a crazy wench and I'm glad she lives on the opposite coast!

  • Good question. Can't let go and grasp that their sons are grown men and don't need a mommy wiping their ass when they get married?

    And to the snotty comment that maybe her MIL thinks the same about her - she probably does because she is jealous her son grew up and got married, which is more disgusting than I want to think about. So she does what all nightmare MIL's do. She causes problems and makes everyone miserable. It says a lot about you that is the horse you want to back.

  • I wish I had a MIL. At least you have one to annoy you. My DH lost his mother when he was 10 years old!
