There are so many funny/crazy/terrible stories about our FMILs or MILs on the Bee! So here’s a fun idea–I’m wondering, if there was a site like the Bee for them, what would they be posting/saying about you?
My MIL’s would probably go something like this: “My DIL is a freakin’ know-it-all when it comes to anything culinary. She doesn’t take my advice in the kitchen and she changes and tries to “improve” on all my recipes. It’s so obnoxious, I mean, I’ve had these recipes for 30 years give me some credit!”
Anybody else know what bugs their MIL about them? 🙂

I guess I’m lucky because my FMIL thinks I’m just amazing. She even thanked my parents for having me, lol.

She would no doubt say I am a lovely person, with a career where I make decent money. But then she would probably add that I am a crazy cat lady!

I’m so lucky because my FMIL loves me! She always thanks my fiance for bringing me into her life! She lives 3 hours away and we talk every single day through text/phone/email. She’s amazing and I love her so much.

I think she would also say that I’m a know it all in the kitchen, but would add that I’m a really good match for her son. I maybe think she would like if I had a more high flying job. I’m a sous chef, but fi makes more than triple my salary as an engineer.

@orchidaloha: Lucky! I know my MIL completely loves me and thinks I’m perfect for her son-I’m actually the only woman DH has ever been with that she didn’t absolutely hate-but the kitchen…yea, I’m pretty sure that for the rest of our lives we’re always going to bump heads when it comes to cooking 😉

I think she would say “At least she’s better than his exs!”
Ha ha, nah I get on very well with my FMI but then it’s a little different as since I have known my Fi since I was 4, I have also known her since I was 4 so it’s not really a new relationship.
I think she thinks I’m a little scatty/wierd but genuinely better than the last few. My FSI seems really excited to have be joining the family. Again probably thinks I’m a little scatty but hopefully nice.
My Mum think’s my FI is a very nice guy but rather unreliable (he has lots of drug problems when he was younger but has been clean for years now). In general I think I’ve got the better deal out of the new family!

My MIL is a selfish liar and a manipulator so she has nothing but negative things to say about me because DH takes care of me and his kids and NOT her! I could care less what she would say about me because it’s all lies. I’m a nice person but I’m not bending over backwards for anyone especially when they don’t want me and DH to be together for their own selfish purposes.

my FMIL would probably mention that I am way to old for her son.
Hopefully that would be her only gripe 🙂

She would probably say that I’m a little quirky but I’m a good person, good to her son and make him happy so she’s happy. She’s a very traditional person so I don’t think she fully understands me but that’s ok.

@RipleyC: Lol I don’t see my MIL to be saying anything too mean. She did not like my SO’s ex wife at all, so I am the breath of fresh air (so far anyway haha).
She might say it’s unfortunate that I’m always so jet lagged and sick when I visit them, but how can I help that?!

@RipleyC: LOL, funny post! My FMIL always reminds her son to take good care of me. She really loves me and took me as her own daughter. When her son told her about marrying me, she said she already knew. She had prayed for our relationship, before we even knew what it was. She’s a wonderful lady!

Maybe I’m lucky but my MIL absolutely loves me. I have had her tell me that I’m extremely polite and friendly. Her work friends that were at my shower all told me how polite and lovely I am as well but I’m someone who goes out of my way to be polite so this isn’t exactly a new compliment for me. MIL is lovely to me but downright mean to DH so even though she is nice to me I dislike it when she reduces my DH to tears. Therefore, even though I am polite to her I do not like her. At some point I will probably snap at which point she will probably have some not so nice things to say me but for now she only has nice things to say.

I think she likes me all right but she’d probably say that I’m anal retentive. His family is very fly by the seat of their pants. Like they’ll say theyre coming to town so I’ll send them a proposed menu for the weekend A week in advance. I have to be able to get the stuff while I’m out shopping and want to make sure they’ll actually eat what I’m making. But I guess when you’re a stay at home mom/wife for 35 years you get used to being able to do small trips. But she laughs at me for that fairly often.
annnnnd lately… She’d probably say I’m trying to make t hard to see their grandbaby. I’m 35 weeks pregnant with our first and they asked to stay with us for two weeks from the moment we call to advise I’m in labour and then two more weekends in sept. We live in an 800 sq ft apartment so dh and I discussed they’ll no longer be able to stay over night with us and he was the one who delivered the bad news but pretty sure I’m still the one wearing the blame there.

We both have a great relationship with our in-laws. My FMIL would probably say something about how awesome I am!
