  • I hate her. Why do I hate her? Because she is non-existant in our lives. I mean, I am happy that she isn't because she an addict, but I wish she would clean up so that she could be involved in my husbands and childrens lives.

  • Mine did not like me because I am from california and I have tattoos. I have been with my hubby for almost 8 years now so she has slowly gotten over her problem with me.

  • My MIL is manipulative, bossy, and judgmental. But I still love her because she gave me my DH.

  • My MIL past away at a young age, only 52. Keep in mind, they only want the very best for their son, just like you only want the very best for your own children. Love her anyway...she won't be around forever.

  • My MIL has done all she can to make my life miserable since day one of our marriage. Funny how she was all sunshine and roses before that. I try my hardest to keep a distance between us, life seems much better when she is not around.

  • @ Momov4kids- I have to disagree. Not all mothers want the best for their children. My MIL actually regrets becoming a mother (yes, she has said this) sad is that? I don't care what my kids EVER do or say....I will NEVER regret them....The only good thing that ever came out of/from that woman's existence, is my husband.....and the only reason he is the man he is today, is because of his daddy.

  • My MIL was great prior the wedding. Then, she tried to manipulate the wedding & how things should be done. Since, it has been a rollercoaster. Luckily, she is far away, but when we're around each other, I swear she doesn't want me to exist. There are NO pics of me in her house; my hubby, yes, my 2 children, yes, but I am nowhere. Plus, she likes to argue with me even if I have evidence to prove my answers. It's blood-boiling!

  • My MIL has never liked any one my husband had dated, let alone me who took him off the market over 10 yrs ago. She even went so far as to give us blank checks to use when we were short on bills...and then recently told me that she was going to turn me in for forgery just because she could. She is crazy, and I hope I never have to see her or talk to her again. MY husband takes our son to see her bc every child needs to be around their family, but in my opinion, he would be better off not to be around someone so unstable!
