Note the question is do you like your MIL. Not do you get along with her, or are you civil with her, but do you genuinely like her?

  • I do genuinely like her. She is wonderful and sweet and kind-hearted and a great grandma to my kids, even tough she has never met them.

  • A resounding NO. But I tried, I really did. But the straw that broke the camel's back was when she bluntly told me that my son wasn't part of her family. So then I let her have it and we don't speak and that's AWESOME to me!!!!!

  • I get a long w the woman who would have been my MIL since I left her son and raised my girls(her grandkids) on my own for 3 yrs w/o her son in the pic. I guess she relized I was never the problem and my kids are #1 in my life. In fact She and her husband stayed w my parents and I one xmas and then a yr later she stayed w my SO and I for a weekend for my dd bday. Now my SO's mom I like her and have no problems and dnt think I ever will.

  • not a whole lot i've been with her son (granted it was off and on) for nearly a decade and it wasn't til after we got married that she tried to make an effort to get to know me and one of the first questions she asked was if i was still on birth control and when we were planning on having kids

    Answer by macks_mommy at 12:07 AM on Oct. 7, 2010

  • She's my second mom. Wasn't very fond of her when we first got married but that was because hubby used to run to mom for everything or so it seemed like. However, I got over that and now I am her favorite daughter in law. =)

    Answer by SpiritedWitch at 12:09 AM on Oct. 7, 2010

  • yes, she is really good with the kids, she's accepted me into the family without question,even when my own mother was having a fit about me haning a baby with my now DH who I had just started dating a few months before. She just said congrats and I've been accepted as part of the family even since.
