MIL question

We use to live right across the street from my MIL, which did not work!! She is one of those people that try to tell you how to do this, and always in your buisness. Me and my husband moved to a different city and me and my MIL started getting along really great! (Keep in mind we BOUGHT a house) Now she has moved less then a mile from my new house and I am concerned it may start all over again. My husband says he won't allow it, but saying and doing is two different things. Any ideas?

  • I always say.. Hope for the best, expect the worse.
    Just deal with it if it starts happening again. Wish you the best of luck!

  • Be optimistic and politely deal with each issue as it comes up. Try to build on the good things between the two of you. GL!!

  • At the first sign of her doing the same things, stand up for yourself and tell her to go away.

  • you may have to get nasty with her and tell her to stay out of your guys business , sometimes thats the only thing that works for people.
