It's the same with dh's brother and his wife. They let it go and don't buy into her manipulations and they're happy. Why bother fighting, that's prob just what she wants.
We have a great relationship if you factor out his parents they're the only major issue.
Smoke follows to inside from heavy smokers, dh never said a thing to a mate who smoked heavy at our house outside then came into our spare room and made it smell like cigarettes id have to wash everything all the time including my clothes in the wardrobe I was beyond furious. I now don't want it inside or out and dh's family are all very heavy chain smokers I said no lqst xmas to them holding dd and while I was inside mil handed over to cousins and said she'd be fine one of them fell over half hr later as she was so drunk and mil could see but I was mean denying someone who'd had 3 kids removed out of her care cause she won't stop using drugs from touching my child.
Ohhhhhh i had to laugh while reading this...I AM NOT ALLLOONNNEEEE... just to contribute to the phenomenon which is MIL... my Darling MIL recently sat me down to tell me that even though my partner and I have spent 5 1/2 years and 2 children together, our relationship means nothing because we are not married and she is desperate to bring her niece from overseas and if that means marrying her niece to my dear partner then thats EXACTLY what will happen... i literally had no words for this particular conversation as it happened but i must say it definately took the icing on the cake of messed up things she has done and said since we have been together... then to to top it off a few hours later she goes on about how lucky i am to have her as a MIL because she is so kind to us :/ :/ :/ lmfao
