I have been reading everyone horror in-law stories and thought I would add mine.
I do apoligize about how long this is
My MIL has always hated me,she never made a secret of the fact.When my oldest was 4 months she rang DOCS saying I hit my child.They came out and investigated and found nothing but a happy healthy baby.I could never prove it was her though.She blamed my BIL and he blamed her.I ddint talk to her for 3 years after that
Then my Dh twin brother begun dating my younger sister and although we still didnt talk my MIL and I avoided each other and when we were together just kept the peace.
18 months ago my hubby twin died and left my sister with 2 baby girls(aged 3 and 2 at the time)and she was 8 weeks pregnant.When MIL found out my sister was entitled to all his super/life insurance and she wasnt getting a cent she begun her usual crap.Accused my sister of killing her partner(took a year before they said he died of SADS)and started saying the kids werent his.(BTW my sister didnt see a cent of the money,she signed it all over to the children)My sister went into premature labour because all the stress(Bubs was 8 weeks early he was tiny but is doing great now)My hubby took the side of my sister and we cut of all contact with his mum and step dad.It was 8 months before they called and asked DH why he hadnt called them.Dh replied "You know my number".When they heard I was pregnant(they were the last to know,they found out when i was 15 weeks)they told people I only got pregnant so my hubby wont leave me.(laughed so hard at that)
They rung the other day to ask if we were going to their house for Christmas and hubby replied he wouldnt go there if they were on their death bed.
We live about 2km away from them and everytime I see them I laugh so hard knowing they got what they deserved.They are missing out on their grand kids the kids arnt missing them though(My girls wont have anything to do with them and call them by their christian names now instead of nan and pop,They are old enough to understand the trouble they try to make.)
Thanks guys just wanted to let you know you are not alone with the horrible In Laws.We still see DH older brother and sister and his dad comes over once a week or we go there.Its just the MIL and step dad who we are better without.
