    Default MIL - thank god I don't live with her!

    I'm so over her I wish she'd stop talking to me all together. I'm not going to make this a massive long post. I just wanted to tell someone that I can't stand her, she's a horrible woman and I don't want her talking to me because she never has anything nice to say. She is creating a problem for DH and I coz he can't (or doesn't want to) see how horrible she is to me and now after a recent visit from her all I see in DH are the things I don't like about her and I know there is much more to him than that. Anyway I just had to get off my chest that I can't stand the woman.

    My mil is the same. I feel your pain. I can't do anything right, I'm not a good wife in her eyes and she has on very many occasions let my husband know that. He won't stand up to her, rather he blames me.

    Because of her attitude and meddling we are in couples counseling.

    On top of that, because she isn't all that helpful my DH resents my mum who would help us 24-7 if we asked her to.

    So ye I sooo feel your pain.

    I feel for you misho. Some nasty women out there I'm lucky my MIL lives to far away for visits regularly. But after this last one DH and I have had a different relationship. All the things that he does that annoy me he's learnt from her coz she did them all while she was here. Funny thing was she complained about it when he did it. I chose her son but I sure didn't choose him. All the stuff I like about him is from his father and he's passed away now. She's gotten worse since he passed away too.
    We have been talking about counseling lately to hopefully it will help. It's just so draining trying to be nice when she's so horrible all the time.

    She's at it again. She's gone and told DHs brother that we hate her and are never going to let her see DS ever again. Firstly yes I don't like her she's not wrong there but as much as i wish she would stop talking to me i never let her know that i think shes horrible for DH sake. Besides DH can't see anything wrong with how she talks to me or what she says. But as much as I don't like her I would never stop her from seeing DS if she wants to. I tell DH to contact her, if he doesn't then there's not much I can do about it. But how dare she tell people we would not let her see DS when that's a total lie. She has always been horrible to me but never lied to people about me. I am so angry about it right now. Maybe she will stop talking to me now or at least DH will see how horrible she is to me and might stick up for me now that he's involved in her stupid games and horrible talk. Vent over. (p.s I meant in the above that I didn't choose her)

    mine is the same! Can't freaking stand the woman. Whenever she makes a snide comment or belittles me or tries to take on the mother role of my child it goes straight over DP's head. From what I read in all these MIL posts, it seems to be the norm that the husbands/partners don't see what all the fuss is about. I think because women can tell an attack and underlying meaning behind comments whereas men take them for face value.
    He jokes around that my mum is the worst cook in the world...(that might be in fact warranted since she could burn a garden salad), but when I told him that his mum ALWAYS overcooks her lamb and it's dry it was almost as if I told him I wanted to leave him...he was DEVASTATED hahaha. She made a dig about me having a belly the other day for no reason and he didn't even get how rude that was! Ahhhh MIL'S! One day I'll be one of the good ones I hope!

    I hear you!

    My In laws celebrated me and DH's seperation, and took the oppurtunity to begin doing everything in their power to destroy me. This is after I personally put up with them for years and helped them any time they asked me.

    Screw them. I dont have to deal with them anymore, Woohoo!

    Me and DH are considering working things through but this time if we decied to date again and work it all out, he can keep me and them seperate, entirely. I dont care to mend anything and as far as I'm concerned they don't exist.

    Hope it clears up for you!
