  • He knows exactly how I feel about them. It didn't happen overnight but once he woke up and saw the problems we were finally able to set boundaries and now have a great relationship with them. He is much happier with how I feel about them nowadays, but he knows none the less.

  • Yes, many times (mother), and 28yrs later he FINALLY gets it! She was and still is a mean, vindictive MIL. I was never good enough for her baby boy.

  • No and I never will....I really, honestly hate his mother and I know that would break his heart to hear....I'm still very nice and polite to her, I hug and kiss her...but I really, really wish she would just leave me the hell alone....I don't like that she calls me so often, I don't like that she has so many opinions on how I should be raising MY daughter, I don't like that she calls ME to find out how Rich (DH) is doing when we both know good and damn well that she has his number and should be calling him, I don't like that she treats Rich like shit, but treats her other son who is 28, still lives with her and robs her blind like he can't do any wrong...the list goes on and on....I just want her to leave me alone....will I ever tell Rich this? Hell no...I'm taking all that to the grave with would break his heart

  • He knows. But my MIL is great. So nothing to hide. DH isn't particularly fond of my mother. Then again, neither am I.
