  • I don't know about CLOSE to either, but I love them both. Close to me just says that you can really and truly be entirely yourself with someone, and there are very few people in the world (just one, really) that makes me feel that secure.

  • No relationship with my MIL... she made things so unpleasant DH cut her off.

    My mother passed away four years ago.

  • I have a good relationship with both, My mom is like my best friend and my MIL is one of the nicest people Ive ever met, don't get me wrong MIL can be mean and hateful but she will say she is sorry faster than anyone I know. she is a good woman.

  • I have a MIL and a Step-MIL. I have a great relationship with the step.  My MIL I have issues with. She is an animal breeder and hoarder. I understand that part of it is mental health issues but I cannot accept the living conditions she maintains and refuses to leave due to her dogs. She is overrun with dogs, birds, and MICE. She jokes about it as if it is no big deal but it is unsanitary and dangerous. She refuses to get rid of the animals so she can move in with family to take care of her. I cannot condone her actions nor do I want to have to deal with it if she will not make compromises. It has lead to a severe strain on our relationship.
