blondie55:  keep them at a distance, tell them what they want to hear (even if it’s bullshit), and drink lots of wine!

Yup I agree with future.mrs.koban  My FMIL is the exact same way as well as my FBIL. They resented me in the beginning because I was taking their son and brother away from them, which wasn’t the case at all. They always talked about me behind my back saying I wasn’t good enough for him and that he changed so drastically blah blah blah. But after eight years of the bulls**t they finally settled down and accepted me. I still keep FMIL at arms length and try not to talk to her about anything other than the weather or something trivial like that because she will twist my words around, but FBIL and I are really close now and get along super well. So just hang in there. All you need is time and hopefully they will learn to accept yuo as well!

OMG mom’s & their sons…sooo annoying!  I know I’m not being helpful, I’m in traffic & needed to comment but also make it short &  just had to say that!

Why do Mother’s who play the “She’s taking away my BAYYYYBEEEEE!!!” card creep me out? Seriously.   It’s like the mother has some sick, romantized idea that he son is this ideal version of the man she always wanted for herself.  Its really disgusting IMO.  My EX-DH’s mother was like that – part of the reason he’s the ex.
