Haha, YES. 

I adore my Future Mother-In-Law, but she is so opinionated. Always bringing up that we should have kids at 27 (her perfect age) and that they need to be raised in religious schools because “that’s how you learn morals” (we’re not religious) – she has an opinion on everything! What color my hair is, the dress I’m wearing, etc. I love her though!

After Christmas dinner at her house, I went to the kitchen to help with the dishes.  As I’m rinsing some plates, she rushes to me and says “oh, you know what, those plates are really valuable….we should just let Julie (FSIL) wash them so that they don’t get broken.”

I, of course, just excused myself to the living room to watch football.

@PinkPinstripes:  Same problem here… we mentioned that my husband and I both feel better about adoption, and my Mother-In-Law (a few beverages into the evening) told me “you WILL be giving birth to MY grandchild”.  No laughter, just awkward and terrifying.  Yikes.

omg.  I can right a 1000 page book about FMIL’s  verbal diareah.  She just doesn’t not think before she speaks and everyone makes the excuse, “oh she doesn’t know better.”  Um, she’s an adult, that’s not an excuse.

One of the first things she said after I showed her my ring was “that’s gourgeous, how much did it cost?”

then at the dinner table she turns to FI’s sister and her boyfriend of 17 years and says “Jenna, don’t you want a ring like that? You can have one.  Tom’s not cheap.”  OMG awkward.  (they have no intention of every getting married – marriage is not their thing).

I can go on and on and on.

@lilyfaith: See, I feel that I could get along much better with my Mother-In-Law if I could look past her annoying quirks. How do you look past these things? Is it just that you like her so much that it’s easy to overlook these things?

Sadly, I don’t like my Mother-In-Law THAT much to overlook it all 😉
