  • I do get along with my MIL, but we don't normally talk on the phone. She always talks with DH most days, and we normally communicate through him. lol

  • We pretend to get along in public. I have tried and tried with that woman and it always turns the same way, she gets pissed at me and I never find out why lol. She never really liked me & has done some real messed up crap to me including helping me lose custody of my son because she thought if me and dh broke up he could then get custody of our dd and live with her. Shes really just evil inside lol.

  • I get along with her for the most part. She isn't big on talking on the phone so we rarely talk on the phone. She doesn't stop often b/c she doesn't want to intrude or be to pushy (we live 2 miles apart) it's good and bad, sometimes I get bored being a SAHM and company would be good for me and my son, but then I can understand how she doesn't want to be to pushy. Sometimes it can affect my marriage when she tries to give my husband advice or something behind my back, or calls his cell instead of our house phone, like she only wants to talk to him, then it gets a little to much for me to handle. lol.

  • Yeah I get along with her and I talk to her on the phone everyday, but some of the others I could do without their drama!

  • I don't get along well with my MIL for a variety of reasons. No, we don't talk on the phone. However she really doesn't talk on the phone so even dh does not talk to her on the phone. If anyone calls it's his dad, generally because he wants something!
