Can MIL's be perfect?

My MIL is the sweetest woman ever. I hear so much about the "evil MIL" and how horrible they are. But I know there are those special ones out there. Is your MIL one of those special breeds????

  • my future MIL is the most amazing woman I have ever met. She is everything I strive to be. She should be on the fast track to sainthood

  • She certainly likes to think she is.

  • No one is perfect. However, I do believe that mil's and dil's can exist in the same world together. My mil and I had a rough start and I never thought we would be friends, never. Things changed though, she decided I wasn't really a bad person out to steal her son and I decided not to hold my expectations up so high for her. We get along like mother and daughter now. :)

  • My MIL puts up a front... she wants you to think shes hard and perfect on the outside but when it comes down to it she's good to me and a wonderful person. as long as i keep her "little prince" happy....oh yeah she does call him that sometimes.

  • I wouldn't say mine is perfect, but she's pretty great most of the time.

  • Well, no one is perfect. I wish my mother in law and I had a relationship...we don't have one at all. I'm 49, and have been married 22 years. My boys are all over 18, and I really hope to have a good relationship with their wives.
