Mamma Mania


Do you have a meddling mom in law that finds fault in all you do? Im no authority that's for sure but I find the best way to handle her is to just smile all the time (she knows you don't mean it) and it will only infuriate her more and eventually she will stop. I can't tell you how I handled mine because the comment would be erased. All I can say is that it worked.

my mom in law

First sorry @sjm 79 , that must be hard for you and I hope it does not cause tension between you and your husband . Thumbs up to grammasdolly for knowing how to handle the situation . I loved my mother in law she was the best ! She was a woman that did not judge she found the good in everybody even if there was a little bad . She died of cancer at 49 . I miss her everyday .

I used to have problems with My Mother in law until I sat down with her and explained how I felt,I was doing the best I could as a wife and mother and she needed to understand that my way of doing things would be different than hers ,from that day on we have a great relationship

sjm79 Ok, do not let it bother you. Just stay away from her, don't have her over,don't interact with her at all. Tell her you don't want to associate with her, or better yet have your husband/boyfriend explain it to her and then you will not have to deal with her at all. Remember.... A man's mom has to step aside once her son has a mate. it has to be that way, or it will never work. The wife has GOT to be first in his life and he has to understand this. A lot of you will, unquestionably disagree, but I've seen this with lots of people, have told them just that and mamma dear has virtually become invisible to the daughter in law

Why would a mother hate her sons wife? Women should lift each other up, not drag each other down.

Hard relationship

My mother-in-law and I had a bad relationship at the start. It took me a long time to realise that we were both stressed over different things and coming to the difficult situation of learning to live with one another. For a long time we had a better relationship, but I couldn't let go of the grudges of the past inside. I realised then that if I wanted to improve things it was up to me to forgive and move on.

Now we have a great relationship, but every situation is different, good luck ladies!

In my eyes my own mother was so perfect in every way. She was my best friend. Not long ago I lost her to cancer and now my new mother in law just is nothing like her. I find it hard. She is so laid back and I like to be organized so it bugs me when she comes to visit and they never want to make plans. We just sit there and I get so annoyed! She wants to babysit my daughter but my child doesn't even know her because she lives far away and she is isn't around much. There is no way I am just handing her over. It could be worse though. She is a nice woman. Maybe I am the one who is being mean amd crazy hah
