Re: I don't know how to make things better.

This forum should be about real people with real in-law issues. The camaraderie of moderating, discriminating cat ladies should not be a factor. This forum should be real. If you're real, you...

Re: I don't know how to make things better.

Brooks, you have not expressed any animosity issues between you and your daughter-in-law. You need to know that your daughter-in-law did not marry your son in order to gain you as a friend. If...

Re: Managing your In-Laws

Dear Swiss, your wife told you that she was treated badly, but you didn't react at the time and you didn't know the truth until a later date. How did you learn? How has this new knowledge affected...

Managing Your In-Laws (discussion)

Great information! Actually, my husband feels that the problem with his mother is my problem, not his. Hence, THE PROBLEM. This is where us mild-mannered wives need to get scrappy. If the mil is...

Re: MIL is a bully!

I hear you! I say send the e-mail. Follow it up with an in-your-face confrontation. This is your family. Your mother-in-law had her family. Now, this is YOUR family. She is not to bully you or...

Re: Need with possible future ML

Dear 1ccRider,



RUN! Run to that place in your head that has convinced you that you are not worthy of an independently thinking, stand-up girl and ask why. All she has done is give nothing,...

Re: More cancer in the IL family. Or not.

I agree with Lucy. You are caught up in the drama. Fact is, you really can only be caught in someone else’s drama if you allow it.


I would just wait to hear.


Your use of the word...

Re: Apologies Poll.

I spoke about my own experience because it was not one of the ‘poll” selections. I’m not sure why I had to explain that with a generalization of an apology definition, but….

Re: Apologies Poll.

My point was: An apology, alone, is nothing. It is only something if it is sincere and a step to change. Acknowledgment and validation can be far greater than any apology.

This could be the case, I suppose. Though, I don't think it is relevant to my post.

Re: Apologies Poll.

I don't understand your reply to me. My mother-in-law apologized to me, but she only did it for appearances. As a result of her apology, I extended an olive branch. She broke it into pieces and...

Re: Apologies Poll.

My mother-in-law publicly apologized to me. She later (privately) admitted that she only did it because she felt that it was what I needed to hear.

She's a phony hypocrite.

Stand up for me already!

Whenever there is an issue between my mother-in-law and me, my husband refuses to stand up for me. How do I get him to value our relationship more than the one with his mother?

Re: She just won't quit!

Dear KayKay,

I read this thread and I’m so sorry that you are dealing with this woman. I don’t know your ‘saga’ with her. I don’t know what broke the camel’s back. If you care to provide the...

Creme and I have been engaging a candid, open conversation about our in-law issues. Have I been sarcastic at times? I suppose I have in the context of the conversation. We may have some opposing...

Re: New Thread for Seeking Sensibility

I agree. My husband has defended her by saying she is ignorant and set in her ways. Yet, he claims she is a good person because she goes to church every week and is a deacon of her church (so...
