  • A lot of the issues are actually between the son and mother. If they don't have a healthy relationship and boundaries, it will be very difficult.

  • my mil does a lot for us. she buys our kids clothes (she's a secret shopaholic, i never ask her to buy my kids anything) everytime she goes to a store. she takes my kids for me when i need a break for homework or dr's appointments or whatever else... i mean she is great. sure we have had our riffs but i love her nonetheless she is like a second mom to me. she's done more then i can ever thank her for.

  • I like my MIL now but at the begining of my marriage she made my life hell. She treated my horribly and I actually told my husband that I thought she hated me. For years we didn't get along then she changed and became happy when she got her divorce so i think part of it was she was unhappy in her marriage and I was happily married.
