My ex's mum was awful. I'm so glad I don't have to be around her anymore. I had an ex boyfriend who had a beautiful mum. She always said kind things, was warm, caring, had a great sense of humour and was humble. I know she would have been a fabulous MIL and I think her grandbabies would be so lucky to have her now. Damn! Should have kept her son! I really think I will take into account the IL's if I ever get into another relationship. I would love to have an awesome extended family of IL's.
