  • We started off ok....it has gotten worse and worse every year that passes.

    It probably got significantly worse when I had my children. I grew up and she stayed a moron!

  • My husband doesn't have a mom, but he has 2 older sisters that hate me.... oh joy... double the fun.

    One always hated me, the other I got along with really well until we got married. Nothing happened between us... she just started telling people I was taking her brother away. "Taking him away"??? Not sure how I would do that.... anyhow her craziness pushed him away so she proved herself right.

  • I think we got along the first day we met. After that I was never good enough for him. She lives 45 mins away so at least I dont have to deal with her on a daily basis ( which I wouldnt do anyways!)

  • Kind of. She pretended to adore me, lol. And I really did like her. But she's the kind that talks crap about people behind their backs, so I've learned that she's been doing it to me from the beginning. She even told my husband she missed his ex right after we got back together, although to my face, when she found out we were together, she did a happy dance, and joked about how she had always known (DH and I go back to 6th grade).
