Inlaws And Outlaws


Anyone out there have any stories about a terrible mother in law? How do you handle her? It's a terrible thing when you have a mother in law that is really interfering and down right mean.

Not married but my ex's mom was always so intrusive in our relationship. I just tried to take it but sometimes you can't. We aren't together anymore needless to say for more than just that reason but it can be very difficult

I had a lot of trouble with my mother-in-law at first. She was very passive aggressive which became more and more aggressive. My mother is very honest and straightforward so I didn't know how to deal with it at all. I didn't know at the time but she was going through a really tough time with a lot of debt and took it out on my husband and I who were living with her (by her invite).

She also struggled to deal with my illnesses (I suffer from SED/ARFID and depression) to the degree that my anxiety first developed when living with her and I stayed in my room all the time like a rodent scurrying back and forth.

We have a much better relationship now, but It's taken a lot of work on both our parts, with her being willing to learn about mental health and how it's not a 'choice' and me struggling to forgive her, which really required me learning to let something go, a thing I'm not so great at!

Communication and forthrightness is usually the best way to change a relationship with a person, but they often get defensive and a large amount of stubborness can be required to navigate the rocky waters to a smooth relationship! Hang on in there!

My mother in law is so laid back and sweet.

I am so incredibly happy and blessed to have an amazing mother in law who treats me like her other daughter.

I can't imagine not having that strong of a relationship :(

I hope any terrible relationships improve this year
