  • Yes. She'd dead, and I divorced her rotten son a year ago.
  • I love her but she's a bit hard to be around.
  • No..she made it very clear she doesn't like the color of my skin.
  • The first one I didn't. Of course, she hated me first, I took her little boy out from under her thumb. 13 yrs later I let her have him back. The second one, unfortunately, I never got to know her. She had alzheimer's and every time I saw her she thought we were meeting for the first time. I guess the bright side to that is, we never got the chance to hate each other.
  • Sometimes you answer a question with another question: Does Your Mother in Law like You ?
  • I adore my mother in law! Lucky me.
  • Yes, I do like my mother in law very much.
  • i wouldnt call her my mother and law but if you are talking about my childs grandmother on the other side... you know???? i like her to a certain extent because she can be cool... i dont like her for her ignorance and close-mindedness... i think she has issues deep issues..... but i still respect her...
  • I don't have one yet.
  • Yes very much!! And thank God I do she lives next door!!
  • Overall I am neutral towards mine. When she is in a good mood she can be likable though I am always cautious around her. When her BPD kicks in, I want to stomp her like a bug, and I don't think any jury in the world would convict me. In those moods, she sometimes poses a legitimate physical threat and I may well be justified during those times...
  • Yes I like my M-I-L very much she is the type that would give you the shirt off her back if she thought you needed it more than her. But she is like a fish, after three days she starts to stink and I Thank God every day that she lives 500 miles away from me.
  • Yes, I really do. I'm lucky, I guess.
  • My mother in law is awesome! I couldn't find better.
  • If it wasn't for her passion to screw me over,I'd like her.
  • VERY VERY much! She is like a 2nd mom to me! I am vert gratful! I love her.
  • I loved my M-I-L .. she did an awesome job raising her son I was very saddened when she passed away from cancer... If I could have picked my birth mother.... I would have picked her
  • I do. She lives with us and, for the most part, she is a tremendous help. I LOVE having a live-in babysitter! That will be what I miss about it most when she moves out.
  • I like her a lot. And she's sold on me! Whenever my wife starts getting negative towards me I suggest she call her mom who thinks I'm the perfect person for my wife and that if she ever messes up our relationship will never forgive her (all this while acknowledging my faults). You'd think I was paying the woman! :)
  • I like my mother-in-law, but I don't really have a lot in common with her other than her son and grandson.
  • Well, she isn't exactly my mother "In law" atm, but she is my BF's mother, and we've lived together for almost 3 years now. She might as well be! Anyway, back to the point, She is a sweetheart! I couldn't have asked for a better MIL. She's smart, helpful, caring, non-judgemental, and fun. I totally lucked out there!
  • I honestly love my mother in law more than I do my mother. Due to my husband going back to school, we've had to live in their basement. So, I better love her an awful lot.
  • I love her but I do not trust her. She tells me things that leads me to believe he is cheating on me or that he is not an honest and good person. She has a way of sliding in her little comments that make me go bonkers when I'm all alone and for that I'm not so sure about her intentions.
  • I don't know. I haven't met her yet.
  • Yes she's pretty cool. Unlike some of those crappy stories...
  • Yes. She likes me and I like her
  • My first one no way. She's a devious wench. She did any thing she could to make sure I always knew I was not welcome in her family. My second one I love more then my own mother since she's more like one to me. She includes me in family things even though he's gone and never forgets my oldest son like some people do. She also raised one hell of a son. I couldn't have asked for a better man or mother-in-law.
  • That's a hard one! I used to honestly love her, but as the years go by I'm starting to realize what a crazy freak she is! She's very controling. She thinks she owns my husband,still. I dunno, she gets crazier with age!
  • considering you asked how to stop your husband being such a mamma's boy and this, I suggest watching monster-in-law if you haven't already seen it.
  • no, she causes arguements between me and my boyf. Treats me like i am stupid and i dont no what i am doing and nothing i do is good enough for her son. She just cant let him go and stand on his own 2 feet. She is going to be the reason why our relationship wont last.
  • No I don't like her, and here's why: 1) When my wife and I first dated, she kept the ex around against my wife's wishes, but not b/c he was nice, but because he fixed their computers for free. :-P 2) She said she would pay for the wedding and every time I brought it up, she would get irate (THE WHOLE WEDDING COST $3500!). We couldn't get anything off the ground until 2 months before the wedding was to be. 3) DURING the wedding, she went out to go get plasticware and paper plates. SHE WAS GONE 90 minutes! No call no nothing, people started leaving the wedding, we had not even gotten to the cake cutting yet! 4) We have lived 600 miles away for 2 1/2 years, and we have visited 2 times since then, she has not come down one time, only offering answers like "what about my dogs???" or "If a person moves away, that person has to come visit, not me" 5) We are VERY successful where we live, and very happy with life, but she calls my wife all the time and berates her on moving away, and keeps asking her what she's going to do after college - my Mother-In-law has a 2 year business degree, and makes $13/hr. It reads like a crappy romance movie, but unfortunately it is very true. I think she's a selfish you-know-what, and makes my wife upset monthly.
  • Heck, even my wife doesn't like her! That makes my life a lot easier. We see her about four times a year.
  • Oh gosh I just love her - she is absolutely wonderful and we're very close.
  • It's not that I don't like her. She just makes it hard for me to. She gossips too much about divorced women and her brothers' wives. She always wants to know what my husband and I argue about or talk about. She follows my husband around the house like she's married to him. And this one time she even followed him to the bathroom when he was going to take a shower! I caught her not once but 3 times in my bedroom picking up my husband's dirty socks off from the ground and rearranging my bedroom furniture. A few days later my aunt told me that my mother in law was going around telling her relatives that I don't ever do anything around my house and I just leave a dirty mess for her to clean. I was like how could I when I'm a stay at home mom? She's the one that goes back and re-cleans my house after I'm already done cleaning it. And then she goes behind my back and talks about me that way. I know that she thinks I'm not good enough for her son. She always complains about how he's the only one working, supporting this family and NOBODY wants to help him out but her. And what has she been doing to help him? Complain about how I slice the meat, how I stir the food in the cooking pot, how I fold our clothes that's what she's been doing. The way she says things like that about isn't because she wants to help. She's a really big critic and she's just trying to prove to her son that I am not the right one for him. I even heard them talking about it one day too. I just act as if I didn't hear anything. So the answer is NO. Maybe if she'll just give my husband and I more SPACE and let us breathe on our own then maybe I might just like her.
  • yes, shes dead
  • I don't have a mother-in-law...so I guess I wouldn't know.... Hopefully, I don't have Pentheraphobia (fear of your mother-in-law) : [)
  • When I had one all I can say is F**K THAT B**CH!!!
  • I loved both my mother in laws and they thought the sunshine came out my bum , we got along like a house on fire ....its just their daughters that I didn't get along with !...lol
  • I dearly love my MIL. I have always said that she is one of the sweetest humans on the planet. She suffers from dementia, only really affecting her memory which is about 3 minutes long most of the time. Last week at the age of 94, she fell and broke her hip. Friday she had surgery. And now we are trying to find her a good rehab or nursing home to try to get her back in shape to come home next door where she lives with my SIL and family. Because she is such a sweet lovely lady I am besides myself trying to find a place that will show her dignity and take care of her needs, no memory and all. How will she get to the toilet? Who will make her eat and drink enough? Will they rub her head like she likes, will they give her pain meds??? I am so stressed trying but trying not to worry. There is a lot of family to spread the stress around and responsibilities but I just can't help worrying about her because I love her :-(
  • I LOVE ME MAW IN LAW!!
  • We get along for the most part, but do have differences wich we have learned to avoid.
  • most of the time but today she is nagging me about a favor they volunteered to do for me and my husband when we didn't ask them to do anything they did it on their own
  • I loved her very much. She died a few years ago.
  • She died about ten weeks ago.We were two different types of people so would never have been friends but we got on well enough. I was very sorry for her this last couple of years although she took up a lot of my husbands time. Her mind went and we were the only people she recognised.
  • Yes, in some ways I get along with her better than I do with my own mother.
  • I love my Mother-in-Law she is very nice.
  • no i dont she is everything a mother inlaw is sead to be and 100x more
  • I love my Mother In Law. She is very dear to me, and my Husband. I would even go so far as to say she is my best friend. She and I have a lot in common, especially her only son, who we both love and respect. She and Pops even moved clear across the country to be near us and their grandson. They have always been there for us. They are what family is all about.
  • In the beginning we didn't get on because I stole her blond haired blue eyed baby. She used to shove her religion down my throat so I stopped visiting her. Now she is almost 90 and in a rest home, I see her once a year at Christmas and can handle it. My husband visits her every weekend.
  • I loved her very much. Unfortunately she died a few years ago.
  • It's unbelievable how many said YES...WOW...i don't she's mean to me....she lives 1000's of miles away but still makes problems between me & my hubby....when we see each other OH GOD... i suck up to her so she does not talk shit about me. and guess what? she still does. Does Anyone out of the ones that have nice mother in laws trade for a week?
  • HELL NO I HATE MY MOTHER-IN-LAW, all she does is talk bad about me to my hubby, she's nosy, she thinks she knows how to rais kids when her kids was taken away from her for 6 years, her apartment is always nasty, she leaves dishes in the sink with food still stuck on them, it smells like garbage and smoke all the time, and she tried to take my 5 month old daughter out of a moving vehicle when the car was going 50mph.
  • Yes I love her very much me and my wife are Divorced now me and my mother -law get a long real good she tells me I'm a Diamond in the rough ,
  • Well, she's my ex mother-in-law now but we have remained close. She was/is always good to me and the kids and we still stay in touch on a regular basis. I feel lucky because I know other people have issues to deal with regarding in-laws.
  • We had our differences, but she was a good person and, for the most part, we got along well. She has since passed away.
  • We live right next door to each other, so luckily we get along. Now, my father-in-law sometimes threatens to build a tall fence between us, but then we all "get over it".
  • Mine is THE sweetest woman ever to set foot on the earth! She has loved me from day one, and that is very hard to do, sometimes!
  • I never knew her. She died before I met my wife. I wish I could have met her, I understand she was a very good person. I am also sad the my children never knew her, or either of their grandfathers. My mother is the only grandparent they have ever known. This is the downside of waiting until later in life to marry and have children.
  • I love my mother-in-law. She is very sweet to me.
  • I have never had the pleasure. She is afraid to come to our country, and I cannot get to her yet because of my whirlwind life with the kids ,and my son's autism ... seems very nice and has a very sweet English accent. My kids are 11 and she never saw them.
  • Of course I do, my mother in law is always telling me how much she and her dad miss there daughter and hope to get her to come back and live with us, my girlfiend got a little bit smartassed with her dad, and her dad told her to hit the road, but since I was working 400miles from home that I could stay and she would have to leave. I love my in-laws they are great I have the down stair sweet. Ok don't get the wrong idea, I do sneak my girlfreind in when its dark.
  • I loved my in laws dearly, but we made it clear from the very beginning we would never step on each others toes.
  • I like my step mother in law and my mother in law, but I must admit that I like my step m-i-l better.
  • Yes I do, have called her Mom from day one, and that was over 36 yrs ago, I think I have had maybe 1 serious fight with her in all that time, and she will take may side ever time over her sons. Shes my only Mom now as mine pasted away 6yrs ago, and we've lived right next door to each other for the last 23yrs......
  • My soon to be mother in law hates my religion and makes it very difficult for us to have a healthy relationship despite my years of kindness to try and change her heart. I'm at a loss with what to do anymore. Her son feels the same way but is too scared to approach her in fear that she will disown him. It has brought us many sleepless nights but we're not about to let her come between us. To make matters worse, we want to be married in my church. Anyone have advice on how to broach the subject with her? We want to be sensitive to her even though she has shown carelessness towards us. She won't talk about the subject it is such a big deal to her. And has already begun to alienate us. How do we go about this in the right way? Please Help!!
  • She has now passed, I loved her dearly and we were very good friends. Our relation was a solid and respectful one and I do miss her very much. Regards.
  • Yes I like her. I like screwing with her as much as I can. She is totaly nuts. Since my wife is aware of that she allows me to mess with her mom when she flies of the handle on something stupid. It's actually alot of fun.
  • I am very lucky I have the best mother and father in law ever. They have helped me more then my own parents ever have. My husband says i am just like his mother lol. They are both wonderful grandparents to both my children.
  • NO! I despise her and she despises me. I have tried to be nice to her, tolerate her, but she is a control freak who constantly interferes in our marriage. I blame my husband as much as I do her, because he lets her do it. She is a very negative, hateful person who never has a nice word to say about anyone. At this point we do not speak. We can sit in the same room for hours and not say a word. My mother always told me if you don't have anything nice to say don't!
  • I love her, but don't like her. It's a personality thing I think. She is not gentle with my children, but as commanding to them as she is to my husband and me. It is hard to say it, but I do not like her. I continually put action to my love even though my heart is hurt, because that is the right thing to do.
  • No, my mother-in-law has only done two good things in her life that I know of. She gave birth to my husband (his grandfather raised him to be the man he is). She lives about 3000 miles away from us.
  • My mother in law was a very wonderful lady. Even my aunties had the same opinion about her. However it was unfortunate that she died at the age of 70 years old after battling with cancer for about 15 years. I could still remember how she took the trouble to remember the food I liked and she would make it a point to cook my favorite dishes whenever my family and I visited her. She was very dear to all of us. I love and cherish her as my very own mother. Memories of her kindness and graciousness still linger deep in the inner recesses of my heart.
  • Am Training myself to do just that ,Past experience tells me it's not possible ~!
  • Yes, I love my mother-in-law. She's an amazing person, so kind and understanding. She's actually my step-mother-in-law. Sadly, my husband's mother died before I met her.
  • Yes. Shes my other mom.
  • I love mine.
  • The first thing she told me when we met was that I was the b**ch that was stealing her son away from her. She clearly prefers my nephew over my children, and what's worse, she made sure my kids knew it. No, I don't think I like her....no...
  • Actually, I really do.. a lot.. she's an awesome lady
  • You love my mother-in-law???????
  • Well she's not always my favorite person, but with ALL DUE RESPECT she brought my husband into this world for me and I talk things out with her, when she's over-bearing, communication says alot!!! So YES!!
  • When someone hates you how you can like then. I hate her
  • yes, but there's often an awkwardness when I'm around her.
  • I dont have one yet but then one I will have, YES i like her very much. She's from New Jersey so she has an accent. She's funny and sarcastic too. We get along well. We can talk for hours and hours...and when I say we, I mean she. lol.
  • like would be stretching it. tolerate. =]
  • hell yes i love her. shes the coooolest. she has this tight band lol
  • I did when I had one. I couldn't have wished for a better mother in law.
  • I'm not yet married, so I don't have one. But I do like my sister's mother-in-law. In fact, she will be going with me, my mom and my mom's friend on our trip to Cambodia next month.
  • No and my husband doesn't like her much either, neither does any of his 4 other brothers or their wives. She was a sorry ass mother and walked out on them and didn't raise them and now she expects them to take care of her.
  • I did, very much. Unfortunatly, she died many years ago.
  • My ex wife's mom was bearable, but kind of a grump. My current g/f's mom is really nice.
  • I'm yet to meet her...
  • She is the more sweet lady considering her age I ever met.
  • I never met her; she passed away before I met my wife. But, she must have been wonderful because my wife adored her and my wife is the most fantastic person that I have ever met.
  • Love her to no end. She is recovering from being run over by a 3/4 ton farm truck 10 days ago (pelvis broken in 4 places). Expected to be in the hospital until Christmas. She is one of the most beautiful people I have ever known. Send Prayers
  • Don`t get me started...I used to , but, she treats me like crap...so, I`ve learned to "stay away" ! After all , I took away her precious "baby-boy" !
  • love mine she is awesome
  • I used to really like her but got really tired of her causing drama, being a pain, trying to be controlling & give my DH crap that I no longer speak to her. It's just a year now.
  • Nope I hate her and she hates me makes things kinda hard, I have bent over backwards for her and she continues to treat me like dirt. well i'm done doing she ignores me everytime I try to talk to her so i just give up, it is causing some problems in my marriage though. I have a son and I know how I've been treated by my mother in law, so I know when my son gets married to just do the opposite of everything she has done but in my mind if she makes my son happy then i'll be happy with that I just wish thats how my mother in law thought
  • Not really. She is now at the end of her life, so I feel badly about the way I feel. But she has favored other grandchildren over my children and that is hurtful as a mother. It also affects the children - they wonder why the other grandchildren are more "worthy" or "valuable" than they are. Mother in law has paid and is paying for private school education - elementary through high school for one set of grandchildren and not the other sets. The high school alone is over $10,000 per year. My kids grew up with two working parents and went to public school - these "favorite" grandkids had stay at home mom and a private school education! I wish I could've afforded private schools or to stay at home with my kids. But I didn't get the free handout. Can't wait to see what the will says.
  • No not really. She doesnt like me either. She used to be ok untill her true colors started to show. She became controling, mean, crazy. And now all she does is yell and me and my fiance. Oh yea and shes not even my Mother in law yet....lol
