Why are MIL so oblivious?

why is it that MIL are such B&$#? I mean I KNOW that they have been in our positions before so why do they do the sh*& they do, say the things they say, and act like they are all so innocent when YOU confront them? They need to realize if they didnt appreciate their MIL meddling when their kids were younger what makes them think that we, the daughter in laws, would feel any different?

  • I know how you feel. I don't exactly have a monster-in-law but she can be pretty bad. And The Hubbs has told me stories about how his Grandma was to her. So why do it to someone else? I'd like to think that when my children get married I'll be much better behaved. We will all be MILs someday.

  • Because half of them have forgotten or they just don't care! My MIL is great but we have had our defrences. It is my FIL I am having problems with. My MIL knows when I say something to my 4 year old she listens or can't do things with her my FIL is totally different. My husband has had to learn to get a back bone to his mom and dad! So if she starts her **** either stand up to her and tell her how you feel or just take you and your child out of the situation until she changes and knows your serious! GOOD LUCK though!!!!!

  • My MIL needs to get laid. Maybe that way she wouldn't be so involved in my relationship with her son.

  • In defense of MIL, maybe she doesn't like you for good reasons (her own) You cannot make her like you. She gave birth to her child and not you, therefore she may feel that she owes you NOTHING. Then on that same hand, the way you feel about her, is the same way she feels about you...
