NEED to VENT!!!!! Crazy MIL!!!!

I can barely stand my mil and she lives in another state than we do Thank Heavens!!! However she has been planning and extended "trip" to visit w/ us for a month or 2 which I was not happy about at all but have decided to just deal with it after constant fighting with my SO over it but tonight she texts me and asks me if her boyfriend can come with her? She has only known him for like a week and I don not want some stranger in my house and she has horrible taste in men. he is prob a alcoholic or dead beat! How should I handle this lady's?

  • It's YOUR house, your rules!! I know some like to test their limits-not cool. I have stORIES lol. Now when my MIL comes over I grab a bottle of wine and make myself comfy. And then I go to bed early and let my husband stay up to talk to her lol.

  • my mom had a bf RIGHT after my dad passed. i freaked out...but didnt say anything. she wanted him to stay with my little sis place to visit and she said NO!! she then asked me and i told her no also. I dont blame u for not wanting a stranger in your home. He might be great but i wouldnt wanna find out the opposite the hard way what your husband think?? ugh good luck!

  • Tell her you are not comfortable with a stranger being around your children for a month.

  • Tell her she can come but that they'll have to stay in a hotel. Similar thing happened to me and she resisted it but I stood my ground and won.

  • well by telling her she just cant take some body that she meet in a week you do not know who he is and you do not know if he is married she has to test him out frist for at least a year to see if he is the right man for her just tell her she will understand you will see well stay close to god
