unfortunately, i didn't experience that. but anyway, i heard that she was a good person so it wouldn't be so much of a problem had she been alive when i married her son. actually i don't have a problem with my in-laws, my problem was with the husband himself. but we already separated, so that's one pain taken off my neck already. :)

Hi Honesty2008! Fortunately, My mother-in-law isn't from hell. At least she's different from yours. Just don't mind her. Leave her alone.

Dorisday1971, First of all I once had a mother-in-law from hell, sorry to have made you upset but you will get over it. Are you a daughter-in-law from hell?

Yes I did have a Mother-In-Law frm hell, but nort any longer. She never thought I was good enough for her son. Even offered to pay for him to get a divorce.(I wish she would have!!)We even moved 1,000 miles away from her, but that did not help.She was like a drill sergent in the service.

My mother-in-law tried to get us divorced by fabricating an affair for me which I proved was completely without merit (especially when the brothers came forward and 'fessed up for having tried to convince my hubby of the affair at their mother's request). Well, let me back up ... my hubby went home on leave a few weeks after we were married ... and while he was home (to visit a dying grandmother), his mother attempted to set up a date for him. There's been nothing but the clashing of horns between her and I since day one. We disagree on so many things, especially concerning my kids. She told them they don't need braces and that I shouldn't be spending money on it. She told my son to stop bringing his inhaler with him because there's no such thing as asthma and that I am overmedicating him with his once daily Singulair (for allergies and asthma). As far as I'm concerned, she's crazy and the less time any of us spend with her, the better!

Good thing I'm not in your shoes. I have a very loving mother in law and she takes care of me though we have a dialect barrier but still we communicate as often as we could. She lives with us and that's my decision as I don't want her to live with her other children because I'm afraid that she will only be treated as househelp there. Unlike in our home we have our own househelp.

well, honestly, i can say i have the best mother-in-law in town. you see, i am a filipino and i married into a chinese family who have pure blood, but who are living in the philippines. the children may be filipinized but the parents are not. and they would want their kids to marry chinese as well. however, when my husband and i finally got married after a long engagement, i am now living with my in-laws and i don't have a negative word against them. they are kind to me, and they pretty much allow me to do what i want here at home. cool huh? i have set up my office here at home, which is pretty much my computer beside the TV set. and i have my stuff all over and haven't heard them complain. they are very supportive of my projects and they eat whatever i cook for them (whenever i have the time). we have a beneficial partnership at home. they don't ask me for money, but i do buy food and contribute to the food budget at home. but that's about it. i don't pay rent or electricity. so i treat them once in a while, whether at home or in the restaurant. i am just so blessed with my in-laws.:-)

That's terrible indeed! I was blessed to have a mother-in-law from heaven. She is the mother of my husband and therefore she was good enough to raise 10 children of her own. She is still living with her husband, both of them at 75 plus years old and are very much in love by each other. They take care of themselves because my father-in-law is sick, had a mild stroke. My mother-in-law took care of me when I had a delivery esp. for my first and second born children. She was not able to be with me when I delivered to my third baby because she needs to be at my father-in-law's side to take care and feed him. Maybe even if you call it "mother-in-law from hell" try to be kind to her, exchange her cruelness with kindness, love and sharing maybe she will be awakened. If you really love your husband, you would love also his mother even if she's from "hell." Disagreements are always there, it is up to you how to handle it. Good luck to you!

She's not technically my mother-in-law...yet...but my boyfriend's mom doesn't like the fact that we are together, and neither does his dad. There is a 9 year age difference between us. They are very old-fashioned and don't agree with it, and they don't want him with me. This is already causing problems between us, and I'm sure if we have children it's going to be a big issue there, because I won't want the children staying with them.

Hi!I went through the responses there are many out there with similar experiences.One look at my m-i-l and no one will believe the things she is upto she's got the the perfect angelic looks.But she has given me a tough time.She can sweet talk anyone including the son to get things her way and against me.Nothing will please her she kept finding fault with everything living together was quite stressfull.Luckily now i have a break she has just moved to her daughter but cant say for how long.I wish these women will realise that they have lived their lives and its only fair to let us live ours the way we would like it.
