Is the sport shows something MIL’s actaully interested in? I get the issue, and I think DH needs to stand up for what he wants, but I also understand MIL wanting to see her son for his birthday – she might be hurt  if she feels that her son wants to spend time with his inlaws, but not his own mother.

If DH thinks she’ll ruin the experience, then he either has to stand up to her or deal with the consequences of being a pushover.  It’s too bad it takes away from his birthday, but you can’t force him to stand up for himself – he has to learn the hard way.  And you definitely can’t do it for him – he’s an adult and has to learn to say no.

@megz06:  I’d use the excuse that worked on my ex. Tell MIL that it’s going to be a guy-only hanging out (except in my case I used girl-only lol).
