I can tell you ladies a doozy! My Mother-In-Law didn’t show up for our wedding! It’s been quite a few years now and she has since passed but the beginning was rocky. My Mother-In-Law wanted my husband to get back with his ex wife (who left him for another man but wanted him back after I got him) so she refused to come to our wedding and we didn’t know until just an hour before the wedding started. This hurt my husband deeply as you can understand. Luckily over the years she came around and ‘got over it’. The last few years before she passed we got along very well and devoloped a strong bond which I am thankful for. I still feel sorry for my husband though, it still hurts him when he thinks about it.

Sadly, so so…in the begining she hated me. She has been misinformed of some things about me and our cultural differences seem to aggravate that. I like her but I don’t think she likes me. Hopefully, it’ll get better.
Luckily, my Fiance is ALWAYS on my side. He’s 100% mine.

LOL. I’ve only met my future Mother-In-Law three times, and the fiance and I have been dating for over five years. She is an old hippy, and we have very little in common. She is nice, but, well, there is no way to say this kindly, she isn’t very bright AND is missing a few screws.
But, that said, she is very sweet, and is absolutely no trouble. I just won’t be leaving the kids with her very often.

My FMIl is 63 years old. We have absolutely nothing in common…she was a stay at home mom for 9 children, and I dont even know If i want kids! She is so involved with her church, very strict catholic, jesus decorating her entire house, and it is all very strange to me. I mean I believe in god, but I think its strange to have a poster size portrait of him above the couch, and a 3 foot statuete of mary and a 3 1/2 ft one of jesus in the living room…We dont have anything in common…she’s kinda like the grandma you hate visiting because all she does is lecture you on jesus and being righteous…and you’re thinking how wasted you were the night before and you feel terrible after going there…O maybe thats just me! Dont get me wrong,, she is very sweet….but we dont have a lot in common and I dont ever think we will be close….Im fortnate enough that my own mother and I are very close.
