Do you hate you're mother in law? Has she ever tried to run you're marriage, boss you or makeup lies on you or make you're husband hate you?

You hit a sore spot with that question. I have a grandmother-in-law which is ten times worse - as if that were possible - than a mother-in-law. She's 86 lives with us, is a miserable controlling racist commy, listens in on our telephone conversations, snoops around and takes things, bad-mouths both me and my hubby (her grandson), the list is endless. I haven't spoken to her in two weeks and my life is so much better!

I doubt that she's tried to poison me before but I have always been so good to that lady, can't teach an old dog new tricks.

I don't have that problem. My mother in law actually passed away years ago. I do have a step mil. She is great. Although, in my past guys I have dated, I did have this problem with their mothers.

I have a mother in law that will tell everyone else what a good daughter in law I am and that I am the best thing that has ever happened to her son. She has also told me this on a few rare occasions. But when we are alone she is constantly picking everything apart from the way I disipline the boys to how clean my house is on a given day. Drives me nuts at times. But I have heard worse stories about terrible mother in laws so I guess this isn't to bad over all.

I do not hate my mother-in-law. I think we have a decent relationship. Although, I must say I'm VERY thankful we no longer live with my in-laws, they now live on the other side of the country. But I think we have a good working relationship.

My mother in law is a good person and I like her but she can be a person I cant deal with sometimes. She tried to tell me how I need to do with my daughter when she came home and got in fights but she knew that it wasnt her place to she apologied. She start the fight with me one time after she got in fight with her other daughter in law. She came to my house, screamed at me and left. I got mad, told my husband about it and he called her and screamed at her for screaming at me. Now, we get along okay since that screaming. Maybe she learned the lesson.

My mother in law seems to be the opposite - She is a great person and very easy to get along with. She would never interfere in our marriage

I dun know whether I hate her or not... But Yes, I had a bad experience with her... I dun know why but she has made lot of trouble in our marital life she never wants my husband to talk to me, even she always tries to send my husband in my room when I sleep.. when I had a baby and had some critical problem and coz' of that I had to admit in the hospital for 2 months she never sends my husband there in hospital to meet me.. but he came. she used to says to her daughter that she will gonna marry again of her son... she had made lot of efforts to break our marriage I dun know for wat reason.. Mine is arrange marriage and with in 1 month we got married so we (me and my husband) had not got much time before marriage to know eachother well (I know it was big game I played) So after marriage he only used to listen her mom's word.. Anyways, it is big story of mine... But now when my hubby has seen few wrong things of his mom.. He started understanding me... and we dun allow her to interfere at all.. i say straight a-way not to interefere in us... When I got married I used to respect her lot... I treated her like my real mom.. But she had changed me lot now... I am having a bad experience with her.. not only with her but my father inlaw and younger sister in law too.. we (my hubby and my)had almost split out and agreed for divorce... But for God sake, we are happy being together... she creates lot of trouble now but I dun care when my hubby is with me.. I am not lucky on this :)

I love my mother-in-law. She is always willing to help me and my husband no matter what it is. She has never said an ill word about me or anyone else for that matter. She had no problems with me and my husband getting married even though he is 20 years older than me.

The mother of mine (motherinlaw of my wife) looked after my wife as her daughter and hence the question of dividing the family to meet her own end did not arise in my family.

Oh my mother in law is much, much worse than that. She isnt a horrible mother in law, she's a horrible MOTHER to my husband! She yells at him like he's a child, constantly putting him down and she does it in front of our kids. Speaking of our kids, she lives an hour away but only comes to see her grand children once every couple of months and only stays 20 minutes and then leaves! She has a boyfriend who lives only about 20 minutes away from us and she goes to visit him every single weekend, but not her own flesh and blood grandchildren! She lies about everything. She wants everyone to feel sorry for her and she's constantly whining about how bad she has it. I'm usually a very kind person to everyone and can usually bite my tongue pretty well, but this woman just pushes me over the limit! I'm really glad that our children are too small to realize what kind of grandmother she is, but some day they will be able to understand!

I do haave a lot of issues with my mother-in-law. She is very sweet person but has bad intent. for all good. I want to be her friend but she makes it very hard. I know that u r supose to do to others as u have them to u but she don't treat me the same or my child who is her grand. my hubby is her 2nd son and he is not her fav. neither is my child. we live 5 miles and she never visits her grand or son. We have to go to her place and deal with 2 other grands of hers who r her fav. by fav son.

We've had some problems, but no I don't hate her. I just try to respect her the best I can and if something rubs me the wrong way I try to deal with it in a mature way and not let it get me riled up. I want to model mature behavior in front of my children.
