  • Its your son's job to be irate with her. If that was me, being the bitch that I am, Id have told her right when she did it, how RUDE and disrespectful it was to openly flirt with another man in front of your husband, child AND inlaws at the same table.

  • Maybe express it to your son and let him talk to her.

  • MYOB. What you may interpret as flirting (as a MIL) maybe just her outgoing personality. Let your son handle his own relationships now & in the future and just TRY to be nice if you can for your Sons sake.

  • Many married people do it. I say let it go don't let it bother you. If I was in her shoes yeah I would not do it but hey everybody is different.

  • Me personally.

    I would not say a word. I would be biting my tongue bloody no doubt. However I would not say a word. My son's marriage, his wife, his relationship with his wife is their business and not mine. I will take a lesson from both my mother and grandmother when my only son (only child) marries. That lesson is: Do not get involved in your children's marriage. If they ask advice, if they ask an opinion, freely give it . They asked for it. However, never take the first step and interject myself **into** their relationship.

    ((Note:: that does not mean that I would not say something if there was abuse, if someone was in danger..etc.. However interpersonal man-woman relationship between my son and his spouse is not my place or business))

  • not your place...not that I defend her but your idea of a huge flirt may be small and if yours on is bothered he is a BIG BOY and can fight hisown battles and your grandson depending his age probbaly did not even notice.

  • I wouldnt anything to her but i would talk to her husband about it. And if hes ok with it then i would just let it go.
