  • Not me! We generally get along really well. My MIL is a very caring, laid back person. she pampers our little one (and our furbaby!) and doesn't butt into our business. Best of all she sympathizes with me when my husband is being a dick. LOL!

  • I'm afraid my mother in law has had nothing to do with us....doesn't even know our kids even though we live nearby. We've been married 22 years, I think it's sad.

  • We live with his mom. I take care of her, my hubby and his older sis ... all in bad health and disabled. She drives me nuts at times but she's 73 so I overlook it.

  • I am sooooo lucky to have the mother in-law I have. She is such an amazing woman, mother and grandmother. We would be so lost without her love and support and I am sooooo glad that I get along with her as well as I do. I love my in-laws :)

  • My MIL is 89 and lives in a nursing home. She and my DH's 1st wife didn't get along very well, but I have no problems with her. Plus, I gave birth to her only grandchild so she loves me!
