I'd appreciate any comments you could give about the difference between your MIL and your mother. How would you describe your relationship with your MIL and why? Also, if you could change the relationship, what would you want to change most? What is missing in this relationship? What can you attribute it to? How could you improve it? Thanks so much!

I have a GREAT mother in law. She is a wonderful human being and a wonderful mil. She treats me with respect, she is kind, considerate, generous, she loves me, cares about my feelings, etc. We hit it off from the get go. We are very different in that she is very proper and always made up. Im more casual and run around barefoot with out make up often. But I try to please her when she is her by doing my make up and being more proper... and she tries to relax a little more when she is around me. We love each other enough and the man that brought us together (her son/ my hubby) to make that extra effort to make the other one more comfortable. I play the games she likes and she helps with the cooking. I love her so much that I asked her (and fil) to come live with us for a month every year.
I was an adult when I got married... and have always shown her the respect she deserved for raising such an amazing man.
