Do you get along with your in-laws?

I can't stand mine, especially my MIL. She's a major control freak, and is constantly causing problems in my life. Any horrid MIL stories out there?

  • I HATED my MIL for a few years after I married my DH. He is a only child, so she was horrid in the beginning. She would call him crying,because she fell and hurt herself,or her husband was being an ass. Of course, he would run straight there. He was a momma's boy. She would treat me like crap whenever ppl were around. One day, we were having a family dinner, and I was feeding my son,and she was treating me like I was a child. I snapped. Right there in front of every one. I told her off..then I sat back down and finished feeding my child.. From that day on, we get along. Actually, I get along better now with her than I do with my own family.. I even call her more than her own son does. I love my MIL......

    So maybe you just need to show her you are not going to take her mess any more....

  • Must be nice! My MIL has three boys, of which my son is the youngest. She thinks she can control all of them, and gets pissed off when I put my foot down (because he never will). Most recently, she has invited herself on a trip we are taking. The sh*ts about to hit the hubby refuses to say anything to her, even though she is now trying to plan the whole day. We had planned a relaxing visit to his grandparents' house, and now MIL is trying to plan all this stuff (mind you, we'll already be traveling three hours to visit them. Our kids will already be cranky). I want to punch her.

  • For the most part I do get along with my mil, I really like and get along well with hubs youngest sis, her husband and hubs sil (brother's wife). I love the niece and nephews and we are blessed with great nieces and a great nephew. I cannot stand hubs oldest sis- she is a drunk who likes to cause drama and trouble. Hubs brother can be a jerk at times so I am not that fond of him.
