Is It Just Me Or...

Does everyone on Cafemom have in-law problems? I feel like I see so many posts with women complaining about their in-laws and finally make their husbands choose between them and their in-laws. Do this many women really have problems with their in-laws or is that the trendy thing on Cafemom?

My in-laws live in Chicago-2,000 miles away from our home in Seattle. I've only met them a handful of times,but they seem like lovely people. And even if I had problems with them,I would never force my husband to choose between his family and myself and our son...I don't know.. it just doesn't seem like very good karma to me.I also feel like forcing your husband to choose between his family and you would result in some serious marriage problems later on.

Nope I like my in laws. I don't agree with my sister in laws choices but we are still friends. I feel like I could tell them anything. My mother and father in law are great too. I actually refer to them as mom and dad unless I need to make it clear weather I'm talking about them or my own parents!

My 'in-laws' are actually DH's grandparents. They raised him from the time he was 10.. They live across the street. We used to get along great, but lately his grandma has bugged the crap out of me. I actually haven't talked to her in well over a month and don't plan on it. Even if things got super bad though, I couldn't imagine making DH pick between me or his family. He can have a relationship with them without me being involved.

 I would think that all the complaints are from people who have issues they are dealing with, with their inlaws, and you don't hear about all the inlaw love, because there isn't much to say.  They love them, they are awesome, end of story.

No way, I love my MIL. We disagree at times, but we are respectful. I love her and she is an incredible woman.

 Love my in-laws. They can be a bit overbearing, but mostly they are great.

I adore my in laws. Happy people don't find the need to post about it. It is the angry people who need to vent.
