What is your SIL story? Good or bad.

I have 2 sister in laws. One is my brothers wife, the other my hubs sister. They are the only "aunts" my son has. Ironically enough, they also share the same name. We just had a 1st birthday party for our son on sunday, and what a kick it was! I'm exhausted, but proud of all the work I put into it lol. Sadly, neither one of my sons "aunts" bothered to show up. My brother had to work that day, so that was the reason his wife gave why she and my niece couldn't come. I guess she forgot how to drive or something. Hubs sister didn't come because "she didn't want to look (his) face", HIS meaning her sons father, who happened to have my nephew that weekend. This is just the latest turn of events that I have to roll my eyes and continue on with life over. They both used to be pretty cool too, i'm not sure what the heck happened. How about you?

  • I have two *former* SILs, sisters of my ex husband, who are both complete bitches. I ignore them like they don't exist when I'm forced to be in the same room. My brother is not married. I've never met my new husband's sister.

  • my husband's older sis is kinda strung out and dates a loser guy and lives in a shack, hasn't raised any of her 3 kids by 3 men..... she's a nice person to sit and talk to, but she needs to get her life together.
    my hub's younger sister is also his cousin(his dad had an affair with aunt, so I'm always uncomfortable around her, accidently introduced her as cousin once and hubs corrected me in front of everyone), she's much younger, and I have nothing in common with her. She's nice to talk to, but has a certain immaturity, like always brags about partying.
    my brother's wife/gf/whatever... dislike immensely. she has sucked the life out of my brother, my brother has probably put on 50 lb, and he was already a BIG guy(currently about 370), since being with her. she does not discipline her son, so neither does my brother, but they are the first one to jump all over my nephew and my nephew is sweet....... more

  • continued.. her son will watch and as soon as ur not looking he will push, or hit, or pull the little kids under the water. her family has money, but she will not ask them for any instead they are sucking my parents dry, then they wanted to buy my old car, but I told her no, I cannot live with myself to do anything nice for you after all the money you owe my parents and all the shit talking you did about me. She didn't even come to my wedding! haha her loss

  • Mine isn't good. My SIL's are spoiled brats who think they are entitled to whatever they want. Both are over 21 and still act worse than any spoiled child I have ever seen. They are jealous their brother is married and has children. Apparently he was supposed to not have a family of his own and just spend his life catering to them. It's creepy how they act like they should be the only focus of his whole life. To me that does not say sisterly love. They smile to my face but all I ever hear from family and mutual friends is how they talk about me behind my back. And DH wonders why I don't want to be around them any more than absolutely necessary.

  • My SIL is 25 and still acts like a kid. She is nice enough, I guess, but she's VERY materialistic and VERY self centered. Those 2 things drive me nuts, but I don't say so to her. We are on good terms. I just wish she'd stop acting so ditzy and helpless and learn to do things for herself sometimes.

  • Mayb ethey have legitimate reason. You should ask your both sisters in law. And dont rely too much on other people making your kid happy. Birthdays, first championships or any other important event, make it about your son. The only family members, that truly think about your son, is the realtives from your side. Your mom, your mom's sisters/brothers, your real sisters/brothers if you have.

  • I have one sister in law and she is pretty awesome. We aren't like, super-secret-sharing close or anything, but I am continuously trying to build a relationship with her and my mother in law. We were actually friends for awhile before I got with her brother, and we knew we got along. We always called each other and introduced each other as sisters anyways, we just made it official at the wedding day :)
