  • NO. It's been 6yrs, that me and my SO have been together and she STILL tries to cause problems for us. She doesnt like me because she says i took her son away, which makes no sense to me because she has 3 other sons that she doesnt even care for either. I think its because i made him move out of her house to be with my and build a family. we have 3 boys and out of this six yrs she's only visit ten times IF that. she constantly talks about how my children dont look like him and bla bla about old girlfriends..she is an alcoholic. and ppl tell me not to pay her no mind..but that still doesnt give her a right to talk bout my kids. I've tried to get along with her but it just aint she's not welcomed at my house.

  • I do yes. I live in another country and my MIL helped me and us a lot, drove us where we wanna go (I don't drive), helped us with paperwork, etc. She's a great lady, although due to her profession (psychologist) she can be very meddling and patronizing sometimes, but hey, everyone has their flaws, I am not without them either. All in all, yes she is great and we get along well. :)

  • My mother in law is the best. I get along better with her than I do my own mother.

  • I love my mother in law more than my own mother! My mother doesn't give me, DH or our son the time of day, but my MIL does. It's my mother's loss but my MIL's gain!

  • We don't have a relationship - I try to avoid her, it's what works for me.
