    @chillinchillin:  I said 8, she has her moments where I want to scream, but it’s just how she is (used to planning and being in charge in her family) but all in all she is great

    Future Mother-In-Law varies between a 7 and an 8!

    @MrsEsteyToBe:  Yours sounds like mine! I am finding out every day about people she went around and chatted with at the wedding (which I asked both our mothers and grandmothers to do) that she was talking about wanting grandchildren ASAP! Apparently she said she wishes we would try that night! LOL. We do want kids thoughm but not until after the honeymoon in June.

    My Future Mother-In-Law is the best!! Not only is she the most patient, kind human being on the planet who loves her family very much, but she is helping us out with the wedding out of the goodness of her heart. In her I can see just where Fiance became the amazing human being he is. I did once tell him that if he and I didn’t work out I’d marry her…

    Mine is amazing and I absolutely love her. I rated her a 9 only because she is an obsessive worrier so sometimes that can get really annoying. If my Fiance mentions that he got a bad cut while working in the yard she will call EVERY day (sometimes multiple times a day) to check on its progress, if he is taking care of it accordingly, etc. She worries about EVERYthing nonstop and it can be really exhausting. We tend to keep things from her just so we don’t have to hear about her worries and cause her to stress.

    Hmm….my Future Mother-In-Law used to be at least at 8 but now she is a 1 now that I finally know what kind of person she is…..She is the kind of person that is super nice to your face and then stabs you in the back  and also she creates these lies and just believes them and I can’t stand people like that! Plus she has a lot of issues and unfortunately all her issues trickle down to FH and she involves him in all her stupid little shenanigans. FH says she likes me but I’m sorry she has a funny way of showing it…she even tried to introduce FH to another girl while we are engaged which really pissed me off!!! Like seriously who does that!!!! only her….she did the same thing to her other son! and her daughter in law doesn’t like her as well! I’m nice to her only for FH sake because he doesn’t really want me to tell her off!

    She’s very sweet but she tends to nag, and she has a way of speaking which is similar to Edith Bunker from All In The Family but not as high pitched.

    My Mother-In-Law has a daughter and she has made it very clear that Iam not HER daughter. I’d rate her 5 out of 10. We will never be close as she has no room for another daughter very sad:(

    I wish I could vote ’10’ twice!! FH has two moms, bio and step and BOTH are awesome for different reasons and I have a fantastic relationship with both!!

    I know how fortunate I am too- my first boyfriend’s mother was a vindictive jealous monster and I put up with her for 5 years!! I thank God every time I think of my ex or his mom and am reminded how blessed I am for my wonderfull Mother-In-Law and SMIL – as well as my amazing FI!!

     

    I feel for those who to go through life with MILS like my ex’s mom 🙁

    Mine is pretty exceptional. I voted 9 because there are some things she does that bugs me but they’re really few and far between. We also don’t live nearby so I don’t see her all that much.

    I went with 3, because I can tolerate her, and that’s about it.

    A few years ago, she was an alcoholic. She ended up with serious nerve damage from drinking, and was hospitalised for 3 months. During the first couple of weeks, we believe she was being neglected, and I got involved in a big battle with the hospital, which took a lot of time away from my work and studies, to improve things.

    When she came out, I took a whole day out to take her shopping, even though deadlines were looming for my MA. She repaid me by orchestrating a ‘parting of ways’ during the trip so that she could buy alcohol, and proceeding to lie to my OH (while sober) that I had ‘abandoned her’ in the middle of a shop. She deliberately arranged the whole thing, and used (or tried to use) me as a scape-goat.

    I didn’t speak to her for about 4 months. This was 2 years ago. I now act as if I like her, but deep down, I don’t; she no longer drinks, but she is still selfish, conniving, and manipulative. She also bingoes me all the time about not wanting children, culminating in her telling my OHS aunt, in front of his 10 year old cousin who we were asking to be bridesmaid that day, that I ‘hate children’. She’s a c*nt (sorry!).

    At the same time, I know what she’s like, I don’t see her often, and I put on a good show of getting on with her. I also actually don’t care what she says, and have no issues being blunt with her, because frankly, she knows she’s on thin-ice; my OH was prepared to cut contact with her for my sake, and she knows that.

    Hence why I gave her a 3 and not a 0 lol.

    I have a great relationship with Mother-In-Law, she is the reason that our relationship continued when Fiance got a serious long hour job, she let me move in even though she didn’t know me too well.
