Lucky Her

Posted on Thu, Aug. 25, 2016 at 07:03 am

MIL is lucky her mIL is dead.
Sil is lucky she doesn't have a mil, she's not even married so she doesn't know how it feels.
DH doesn't have time to visit my family.
I know it's wrong to think like this, but when will I be lucky for her to be dead?

You are not my family.

Hey MIL,

I don't want a relationship with you and your mooching bitch daughter. That ship has sailed a looong time ago.

Even if you try kissing my ass now, i have a good memory and will always remember how the two of you treated us like crap. When you showed me who you are, i believed you. I know it won't take long for you to revert back.

In other words, F you both. I don't want to be associated with you at all.

Evil witch

Posted on Thu, Aug. 25, 2016 at 04:56 am

I have to live with a witch who thinks I need help with taking care of my girls. But all she does is sit there and watch tv and only cooks at night. She loves to call people to gossip and complain about how horrible or lazy I am. She hates her sils so she complain about them. But acts so nice when they see each other.
She can't even get up to pick up the phone when it rings and all she's doing is watching tv. Then she'll complain I was lazy to do it, meanwhile I was busy doing other things.
One day people will know her true side. I don't uderstand why my DH is in denial of how his mother is. Instead of taking care of 2 I'm taking care of three.

Incest anyone?

Posted on Wed, Aug. 24, 2016 at 05:25 pm

I swear one of my husband's female cousins is in love with him. The first time I met her she proceeded to tell me how much my husband,( then boyfriend) looked like her husband. I didn't see the resemblance in either personality or looks, but maybe she sees something I don't. At the time I really didn't think too much about it. She was welcoming whenever I saw her at family functions, that is until we became engaged. Oh my, how the criticism flew!!! Passive aggressive comments about our relationship. When I became a housewife after working hard for many years at my career she seemed especially nasty. Needless to say we have distanced ourselves from my husband's family. They are some of the most controlling, dysfunctional , codependent people I've ever met.

Your Abusive Son

Posted on Wed, Aug. 24, 2016 at 10:27 am

Hello narcissistic MIL and sheep FIL. You have never thought I was good enough for your thrice married baby boy. You, MIL, looked down your nose at me because I had been married before and had a little boy, and thought my family was inferior to yours. You never once called, emailed, texted, carrier pigeoned, etc. me when your son was deployed six times to the war. You told me when he abused me and my boys, and when threw a drinking glass full of whiskey at me and cut up my foot and sent me to the hospital that it was my fault and that I had to keep quiet about it to protect his career. You continue to tell him nothing he does or has ever done to me or the boys is his fault. It is always our fault or the military's fault. You enable his sickness and abuse. You brag about all your money and tell him (and me) that you will spend whatever it takes to ensure that I have nothing and my kids are taken away from me. I have never even so much as raised my voice to you, and have always been nice to you and your husband (who sits by and says nothing), yet you still tell your son how mean I am to you. Now you want me to take leave from my full time job and spend money on a plane ticket to come visit you during the summer when your son and grandson visit for two weeks? Never ever will that happen! Those two weeks are my peace and sanctuary when I can just enjoy the silence and not have to worry about being screamed at and berated by your son. I will always hate you and you cannot leave this earth fast enough for me! Good people die every day, why the hell are you still here? Even you must be too evil for hell!!!

Culture Clash of the Titans

Posted on Wed, Aug. 24, 2016 at 09:22 am

TL;DR: I'm an American free spirit with stuck-up British inlaws.

Before I say anything, my DH is literally the most amazing person I've ever known. He's handsome, he's brilliant, he's a laugh riot and a total nerd, and the one thing his parents did right in this world was create him.

But there's a catch. My inlaws are the most smug, pompous, uptight, egotistical, prejudiced, self-important, stodgy British stereotypes you could ever imagine outside the full experience. My FIL hates foreigners (of course I don't count because I'm white and speak English), dogs, music, and considers himself the apex of the intellectual vanguard because he doesn't believe in climate change. My MIL, with her delusions of posh grandeur and her fake estuary accent (she's from Yorkshire) considers the people in her life nothing more than instruments of her own conformity and status.

Me, I'm from a plain old middle class American family with plain old middle class American values. My parents are thoughtful, open-minded, informal people who always encouraged me to express myself, explore, and do my own thing. When I told my mom not to expect grandchildren because I wasn't interested in breeding, she laughed and said, "I'm not surprised; I taught you kids birth control too well." Meanwhile, every time I see my MIL, I get to look forward to her launching some passive-aggressive woe-is-me about how my DH and I are deliberately denying her the joys of keeping up with her hoity-toity friends spoiling her very own grandchild. My father taught me to appreciate art, science, books, and comedy. My FIL has no passion for anything except English nationalism and working his superiority complex. My poor DH can't even be honest with them about his own political convictions or interests, because he's been a loner for most of his life and his parents used to be the closest allies he had. His aunt, one of the loveliest people I know, says I've made him the happiest he's ever been, just by encouraging who he actually is rather than dictating who he should be.

When they spent a weekend at our house a few months ago, I was ready to cut them in the face within twelve hours. When my DH's mate came in from Wales last Friday, I was sorry to see him go two days later, because he was such good fun. My husband knows how I feel about them in rational, rather than emotional, terms--he knows I'm not keen on them, though he doesn't know the exact depth of my distaste. And while there's nothing I want more in the world than to keep building our amazing life together, the less I see of his parents, the cooler my head feels.

Can you pencil us in please?

Posted on Wed, Aug. 24, 2016 at 09:00 am

Are you really so busy that a phone call from your child requires an appointment 2 days out? And when we do abide by your schedule, could you spend a little more time asking about your child's life? We had some big news to tell you but we couldn't fit it in between your complaints about how everyone in your life requires so much of your time. I'm sorry that you had to waste your Tuesday, 7:45pm time slot talking to your child.

Forgot they were there

Posted on Wed, Aug. 24, 2016 at 01:38 am

I got a fickle divorce from dh earlier this year. After letting myself heal, I realized that I also hated my career as a nurse, it was something dh wanted me to do. I finally got to do what I wanted and that was to go back to college for a bachelor's degree in education. My friends and my family are happy for me, but then I see a snarky comment saying "oh, he (ex dh) is doing that too, stop trying to live his life..." I forgot I had the toxic ex in laws on my facebook. I deleted the comment and got rid of them all. I'm sure they are pissed because I'm moving on and do better with my life.I am sure happy about this great news!
