Our parents were against us marrying in the first place and we had a pig of a job keeping the parents apart as either side thought they were to good for the other. We have been married nearly 21 years and it is only the last two years that I have not had to cook 2 christmas dinners and have christmas day twice. It just got to a point that we were sick to death of them rowing so both were invited and both were warned if you miss behave your out on your ear. Luckily enough both parents have got along but our marriage went a bit pear shaped but is back on track now. Bloody parents are a pain in the arse and they do not realise how much pressure they put on a marriage.

My MIL told my (then finance) that when I miscarried 2 weeks before our wedding it was because it was the sin pr premarital sex. And that we shouldn't get married BECAUSE I miscarried. Then the night of our wedding I was staying at my mom's, fiance was visiting and MIL barges in and threatens to throw a fit at the wedding because it wasn't being held in a church.

A year later I had my daughter, and MIL was accusing me of poisoning her because I HAD to formula feed (I lost my milk ~2 months, no amount of treatment/meds/pumping brought it back). She thinks juice is a better option. She has tried repeatedly to give her peanuts, starting at 8 months!! Actually had to have another family member watch her at Christmas while I went to the bathroom... she tried to give my little one a piece of nutcake.
Lets see what else.. I'm a bad mother because I'm working and not a SAHM who opens her legs when hubby comes home (her words.. no joke, she believes women should make babies and clean and thats it). My enzyme issues (every woman in my family is missing the enzyme necessary to digest meat protein) are pretend and has tried to forcefeed my daughter chicken several times.

We live 4 hours away right now, and she showed up at our apartment one day with NO NOTICE.

I have no issues with my FIL or youngest SIL. The other SIL however..... can't even get into that

Claudette,

Are you currently experiencing major MIL issues? It sounds like you've dealt with some pretty serious issues.

And Pamela! I am impressed by the maturity which you handled that situation. Good things happen to good people!

'don'tno if you got mine post but.... mother in laws are a pain in the ass , the majority of them. cut all ties from her, DO i repeat DO NOT let her break you for one second. move out of town if you have to believe me it is drastic but those intruding nagging m-i-l DON''T change. This is being typed by a m-i-l.

Mine began with my hearing "You're marrying a "nigger"! from my ex-father-in-law. To whom I replied, "You will love me one day".....and the battle began.
On might say that I lost because eventually this man encouraged my ex to leave me and take the children. That happened, the court battle was a long one with their side continuing the case until I no longer could borrow money to pay for a lawyer. The divorce was bitter and devastating.
However, I have the last laugh because it is obvious that my sons are half African American by their looks, something their grandparents can no longer hide. AND both grandparents love and dote on their only grandchildren......our sons hat look more like me than their dad. Since they are half of my DNA and blood and the grandfather loves them....he also loves me. I love cosmic humor and how it works!!!

As long as they are not "in your face" dismiss them from your mind and you EFFECTIVELY reduce their power over you.
Politely listen to their opinions and continue to do things your way. Believe it or not, eventually they will get the message.
