It just hit me.....duh?

Ever notice how most in-law questions are about monster MILs? (As opposed to FILs) Are most of you who have nasty MILs okay with your FILs??

  • probably because most men with difficult wives tend to stay by the sidelines-

  • i think because men do not communicate as much or as good, o when something comes up, HE is quiet because he does not know how to talk or communicate, he is in a cave
    as the woman, MIL, can communicate and will speak her mind
    more chance MIL will say wrong thing because women speak more than men
    not that men do not have wrong ideas or thoughts, just that they do not speak them as often, because let's face it, most men do not speak their minds (we women are suppose to read their thoughts)

  • My father-in-law is the shit. =) He knew I was good for his son when I could burp/belch better than him. We had a little contest upon our first meeting. I won him over in no time.

  • I dont like one bit my FIL he is an idiot that hates me because dh helps around the house and sometimes (please dont bash me) I let dh cook. I know I am a bad wife because I work full time, come home clean, take care of our son but dh also help me clean and cook from time to time I deserve his hate LOL. Screw the idiot. He thinks woman has to do everything in the house well not in mine.

  • Lol, funny you mention it but yes. My FIL is such a sweet, softspoken, wise man. (He's my DH's stepdad though, wasn't his rolemodel.... dammit!) MIL doesn't deserve him, she walks all over him and belittles him. Oh lawd I despise that woman

  • I have a crappy MIL and FIL. I have an amazing step-FIL though. He's the total opposite of the jerk FIL I have. I guess that's why MIL divorced him so long ago. My FIL made my husband and oldest son cry all in one weekend. He's just not a very nice man.

  • I adore both of my SO's parents. They are amazing people who have raised an amazing son who I adore more than anything.
