I'd offer to make her a hotel reservation so she would be more comfortable and be able to come and go as she would like.

Kill them with kindness! (back stabbing witch!)

Please don't take any question as being a serious problem for the person asking the question or stating a problem.
You may make up problems for the sake of discussion. Or you may ask about something that has been in the news for others to give their thoughts.
Or if you really do have a problem ask and you may get the answer you need. It is not necessary to tell if the problem is a true one for you.

We all have opinions on many things. Hopefully we will have many discussions. Some serious and some fun. Jump right in if you have thought of something you would like to bring up.

For the newbies, we do have the right to delete any post we feel is inappropriate. An example would be inappropriate language.

I know it was a made up question but it got me to thinking. I get along so well with my MIL, cough cough. What would I do? I would go away for the weekend, IF I wanted to. A craft weekend, a spa weekend, and give them time alone. If I did stay, she would have to be polite to me in my home. If not, all three of us would have to have a sit down talk. That said, I am so much happier since we moved to a different state. The few times I have been around my MIL, she acts so guilty. I refuse to feel sorry for her. Let me explain her feeling guilty. She likes to feel bad about what she has done. She is not way feels badly enough to change or undo the damage she has caused. That being said I also found out what happened to make her dislike my dh, her son so much. As far as I know only, MIL, dh and myself know. He never told anyone. I have wondered what i would do if anyone ever asked. I have to keep quiet I guess. I never really liked my MIL but after this, I want nothing ever to do with her.

Adding both real and hypothetical questions to this thread makes for fun conversation and thought IMO!

I'd like to ask everyone a question.....Do you feel you are a good MIL? Do you think you're a good DIL?

I do. I'm close with family and always have been, though we, too, are graced with a few who are hard to handle, yet I always try and do my best to accommodate everyone no matter how grinding they can be, and that (I think) is what separates me from the rest and gives me a good name.

According to my now EX SIL I was a good MIL
and my present SIL must think so as he goes out of his
way to help me and do things for me. My dear parent's
in law are no longer with us . But I know for sure they
loved me and thought a lot of me. I miss them so very much

I helped care for my MIL toward the end of her life. And still assist FIL with some things and generally see him at least 3 times a month if not more. DH always knew if we would divorce his parents would have taken me in!

I am a tough MIL and DIL. I refuse to put up with attitude, lies and crap. I do it nicer than I used to.
