Is it me or do men just seem to never grow up!! I dont get along too well with MIL. We never have. Anyways....Recently we were going to take a family vacation down to Disney...and the in-laws basically invited themselves!!! I told my husband he needed to stand up to his mom and tell her that the vacation was just for us as a family. Of course he wont do that. Is it me or is it too mean to tell your DH to grow some balls? lol cause I totally want to.

 It may be "mean",but it sounds like it is necessary.  I would have no problem telling my hubby to grow a pair.  I also would have no problem telling the inlaws that they are not invited.

If he wont you should find a way to tell them. Being really mean is not going to get anyone anwhere. Just next time they call or something say, "By the way, the Disney Trip is just for us. If you would like to take them yourselves sometime, that's fine." Or something like that. Good luck!

Oh I've told him it's just for us...he just won't stand up to his mother and tell her that.

 It would be a hard thing to do if you were in his shoes...

 I don't know if it's just you, but I know I don't have that problem.

My husband handles his business, so it's not all men that need to grow up.

My current DH has no problem standing up and handling business.

NOW my ex is a different story...he still can't his wife does it for him or he just tries ot ignore the situation and hope it changes.

They never, ever grow up.  Sometimes it's frustrating, sometimes it's endearing.
