Why do you HATE your MIL??

I'm curious as to what your reasons are...and if you DON'T hate yours, how did you find a way to get along? Have you been friends since you met? I'm curious because I hate my MIL with a passion...she has done some very nasty things to me, including telling me that my husband had the right to abuse me because I deserved it. So, what's your story?

she used me to get things, and when i stopped doing things for her, she tried to put a wedge between my husband and I. THEN she didnt want to be a part of my childs life, and is now trying to force her way in.

unfortunately for her, i dont really give two shits about how awful her life is now. i am totally willing to let her suffer for the rest of her life =] 


and yet, with a face like that, can one truly ever be mad???  I love my little boy!!!

I don't. I miss mine everyday, and would have given anything if she could have lived long enough to meet my son.

I dont. We have always gotten along. I mean ,yeah she gets on my nerves sometimes, but then again, who doesnt. She is a great person.

So she's a bad mother too? When I was dating my husband, she acted like we were rival girlfriends or something...unhealthily overbearing. My husband doesn't even know how to make a grilled cheese or make out a check.

I didn't have to find a way to get along. My MIL is a wonderful woman, who treats me with love and respect, whose always there when we need her and doesn't meddle in our business. Sadly, she is now battling  breast cancer, although it  seems it was caught on time.

I don't. I have never met her b/c she passed away when my DH was a kid. I wish I could have met her and I wish she was here to see my kids.

How does your husband feel about it? I know mine is always getting caught in the middle, mostly HER fault for telling him to tell me something...like a second grade game of telephone.

I don't hate my MIL, I don't know my MIL she died before me and Jim ever met.




Merry Christmas!!!

I don't.  I love her with all my heart!  She's treated me like a daughter since the day I met her 17 years ago.  Just sad that her illness prevents her from coming out to see us. Can't wait for our trip to Albuquerque to see her next month. :)
