  • no we are not she is very controlling and tries to convince him to leave me every chance she gets even with me pregnant. and she wants me to name my unborn baby a name i really do not like for my child. she calls the house several times a day. but even though you do not have a mil or your mother maybe reach out to the elderly women in a church. lol women always love kids. when i was growing up i did not have a grandmother around for most of my childhood but many of the church ladies would always sneak us candy during church or ask to take us to the park ect.

  • My MIL and I used to get along fairly well.
    We never had an argument. She is gone now and I miss her and still think about her.

  • Fairly close. She has her faults but I have mine also. It evens out.

  • My husband's mom passed away when he was 16. His dad died when DH was 22, but had a stroke when DH was 15 and was basically a shell of a man since then. My parents have pretty much adopted him. I wish I had even had a chance to meet his mom.

  • I like my MIL, but she does live kind of far away and has a drinking problem. She and my DH are not close at all, but when I do get to see her she's wonderful to me and DD. So, I wouldn't say we're close, but we get along pretty well.
