Group therapy required!

Posted on Wed, May. 25, 2016 at 05:13 am

My in-laws should go into extensive group therapy. They are really screwed up people. ESIL and EBIL are like lost souls now that their parents have passed and they can't mooch off them anymore. Now they are trying to mooch off of DH and I. ESIL never recovered from her divorce, which she caused, and has been miserable ever since, taking out her frustrations and jealousy issues on happy successful people. EBIL also never grew up lived with his parents until they both died. NIL is another story, she is also a narcissist like her mother who has been trying to live out of our pockets, even demanded money for her children's bank accounts. How rude! Once they show their true colours and people really get a taste for what they are really all about, being users and moochers, then they back off and keep them at a distance, or cut them out of their lives once and for all. That's what DH and I did, we cut the users and moochers out of our lives. They always act like we owe them something, despite the fact that we got ripped off in the family of money and a heirloom. They need therapy to help them realize why their bad behaviour has damaged family relationships and social relations with normal people. Maybe they just don't care about having quality relationships, I think they are just out for themselves and like to take advantage of nice and generous people like us. Even nice people have a breaking point and can only take so much of bad behaviour. I'm glad we are finally on separate paths now, we will stay on our honest, good path living by godly principles and they can stay on their path to hell. We don't want to have any part of it.

Funny MIL

Posted on Tue, May. 24, 2016 at 11:06 am

Why did you call DH three more times this week? My DH was upset when he called you. Of course you blame me for his unhappiness, when he was upset about his job! Immediately, you said to him to get a divorce from me! She offered you to take our daughter and move into her nasty ghetto roach infested apartment! What he didn't say to you was : "fuck moving with her, I'm sorry. I'm not going anywhere!" But omg when I see you again, and if we do, my DH only see you three times in a year, I will be the rudest, nastiest bitch to you. Fuck you MIL!

My kids...

Posted on Tue, May. 24, 2016 at 09:19 am

My kids aren't perfect by any means but they are wonderful. We get remarks about how mindful & well behaved they are all the time. They are loved by many, especially elderly, because they are so friendly & those little old people just get to feel like loved grandparents.
They aren't snobs & play with other children joyfully. I've invested a great deal of time into creating people that are pleasant to be around rather than little brats. Once again, we're far from perfect but we try our best.

But you MIL don't know any of this. All the adopted grandparents in their lives that adore them and their real grandmother has nothing to do with them. Why? Because they are a product of me? You invest all of your time into the one grandchild with parents that pass her back & forth & then still pawn her off whenever they get the chance.

You once described her as "backward" and I didn't even know what that meant at the time. And while I would never say it to her or reject her from our lives, that child is obnoxious!

DH agrees wholeheartedly! She is constantly demanding & completely unable to entertain herself for any amount of time. I don't cater to my kids 24/7. They know how to play & can even *gasp* feed themselves if I am busy. Your golden comes literally every 5 minutes needing attention & she's not a baby!
I'm not sure which of you is most responsible to making that child into an unenjoyable pest but you don't help. I try to be patient because her parents have done so much to destroy any chance at a normal life but sheesh, it's hard!
But it's fine MIl, my kids do well without you & I promise I'll never beg to have you in our lives!

I used to not mind you. You weren't fabulous but you never caused drama & minded your own. I've grown to despise you.

-you don't cause drama because you are emotionally dead. I've never seen anything like it. You stand up for nothing.

-you invest time & money repairing things for random people. When your oldest son, the lazy one living with mil (your ex) -that has plenty of extra time & money bc he has no responsibility- destroys vehicles (your & his), he just drops them at your house & you fix them without a word. When my husband, who is supporting a family of 5, wants to come by your house to use your tools to fix our vehicles with some help from you (parts all paid for us), you treat him like crap. You are hateful to him & leave him upset.

-I hate watching DH struggle with wanting to hold onto idolizing you as a hero like he did in childhood & having to accept the ugly reality that you aren't a good father or grandfather.

-you divorced your wife after 30 years of marriage. How low can you get? I don't even like the woman but why divorce her? You get these little girlfriends to run around with & I have yet to see how! You are every bit of 400 pounds or more! Your fridge is bare except for a few freezer dinners & pop. That fast food is not helping you. That gf you have now? She's working a minimum wage job-get a clue. She wants your money. I'm certain it's not a sexual relationship bc I don't even know if that would work!

-how long has it been since you contacted us? About 6 weeks? Your grandkids are alive & well if you care.

Honestly FIL, you (and mil) did a horrible job with your kids. BIL has no hope & it's taken me nearly 7 painful years of minimal contact to get my DH into a halfway decent man that understands we need more from him than a paycheck.

But I won't say a word FIL. It hurts me to see DH disappointed in you but he is seeing what you are all on his own.

Mooching bastards

Posted on Tue, May. 24, 2016 at 08:01 am

Through years of bad money practices, losing two houses for not paying property taxes, paying their grown ass sons bills and not charging for babysitting grandkids the pil's are are broke. Dh and are are not heartless and would gladly send them money every month but mil is a manipulating bitch. She never asks, she just texts and says she needs this amount for this bill. She text and said she needed $300 for fil surgery we said no. Found out she went to cali to see bil. She needed $149 for medicine we ignored it. The next day bil posted a thank u on fb to mil for paying to get his car fixed. When I went to show dh the post the next day it was gone. She texts she has no money for food. We find out she is paying $300 a month cell phone bill for bil and sil. We post vacation pics and she says she wishes someone would take her. Since we are the only someones who can afford to take vacations we know who that is. Mil decided she wanted a house. She told dh she wished her kids would buy her a house, next was she dreamed three of her kids bought her a house and dh was one of them, next was she told dh she wished dh lived closer so he could buy her a house. He told her even if he lived closer he wouldn't buy her one. The reason we can afford vacations and a house is because we aren't shelling money out to her and Im not going to live poor for some idiot who never worked a day in her life then expected to live my lifestyle once she hit the retirement years. Dh and i bust our asses to live comfortably and sock a whole lot into retirement so we won't be stuck living on ssi lying and begging off our kids.

DIL Can't Do Anything

Posted on Tue, May. 24, 2016 at 12:02 am

I realize this site is mostly women bashing on their husband's mothers, so I hope that I can put my story out there without them automatically thinking ill of me based on my being the MIL.

My son and daughter and I lived in a very small apartment when my kids were in high school. My son was 18, my daughter was 16. My son started dating a girl, she was very sweet. She lived with her brother and they couldn't afford much food so my son used to smuggle food out of our house and take it to her. Not complaining there, I'm proud that I raised a compassionate man.

They were dating two months and he got his first job. With his first check, he took her shopping. Bought her new clothes and a backpack. A little much for how long they'd been dating but still, he was trying to help her out. But then he bought her a Nintendo DS and several games. He spent about $500 on this girl he'd been with for two months. She didn't even protest.

When she turned 18 her brother kicked her out. My son begged me to let her come live with us so she wouldn't have to move to another state to live with relatives. Of course I said yes, but to help teach them a little responsibility I told them they had to pay $50 a month for rent. I don't think that was too outrageous.

She would go to work with him and sit until he was off, until finally his boss offered her a job and she took it. Every payday they came home with bags of new things, and completely broke. My son was smitten. Knowing she had a very rough childhood, I tried to buy her nice things once in a while.

After four months they up and decided to move in with one of her family members three hours away. Neither of them knew how to drive, so they relied on her relative to drive them around. They both eventually got jobs, and they were damn good jobs. They got drivers licenses. It took them two years to get a car still though.

They lived three hours away from me for five years. They came to visit me exactly four times. One of those times, my son was able to stay for three or four days. The girlfriend chose to stay home because she didn't get along with my older son.

They finally came back and moved back in with me after five years living there. My son got a job right off, his fiance (he proposed of course) took a while. When she wasn't out spending my son's money, she was either asleep in my granddaughter's room or watching TV. She didn't wash a single dish or do a single load of laundry for almost a year.

About a year and a half after they moved back, they got married. She kept spending my son's money and her own, and wouldn't pay a single bill until they got shutoff notices.

Two years ago, my son was injured in a work accident. He was disabled, and his wife had to start working again. He gained a lot of weight because of his back hurting and not being able to get around. Now she "play-teases" him calling him fatty, tubby, fatass, etc. But he continues to dote on her. She goes to work for four hours a day and when she comes home she claims to have worked sooo hard all day (she works at a high-end clothing store where she is allowed to sit on a barstool behind the register and play games on her phone) and so my son does all the cooking and cleaning when I'm not home. He thinks if he does it when I'm not home then I won't know she didn't do anything, but he doesn't realize that I can in fact do math. When she gets home at 1pm and I get home at 1:15 to see a spotless house...well there's no way she did it.

Also half of his meager disability check pays for her iPhone 6S that she just HAD to have because "all her coworkers have them".

My son loves her, and for his sake I love her too. I just wish she respected him more.

Bye crazy inlaws forever

Posted on Mon, May. 23, 2016 at 09:41 pm

I'm glad I'm not part of your arrogant family anymore. You guys treated me like crap for nine years until I finally snapped out of it and divorced your abusive sociopath son and took my son with me. Now all he cries about is child support,alimony,and attorney fees he can't pay. Well you should have thought about that before you put your crazy family before your family. Now you are stuck with a new a baby with your new girlfriend who already had three of her own kids. Karma sure does come around. I have managed to get my credentials and have a successful career. Ex sister in law is know you are glad I'm gone because you have been trying to break us up from the very beginning. How sad you are going on 34 with no husband or kids. All of you are pathetic I can't believe I spent so many years thinking I wasn't good enough for your family but it was the other way around it was better than all of you. Good luck ever seeing your nephew or grandson because he knows all about you crazy people without me saying a word. Karma comes knocking at your door.

Cunning In -laws

Posted on Mon, May. 23, 2016 at 07:27 pm

Before getting married to the guy I was dating for a long time,i had a chance to meet my future mil.
Very friendly talk was wat impressed me at first n praises from my guy about his mom made me look upon her as a goddess .
After marriage came out the true colors of mil .
She started to dominate me asking me to do dishes.On putting forward my request ,through my husband to hire a maid as I did nt do with dishes at my moms place, the response I received from mil is that " wen ur sil hd a baby n tat time I hd to struggle with no maid , n now its totally not required .

She expected me to do the dishes n I did with tears running through my cheeks as I was dominated by mil n by momma s boy my husband.

Later it started she used to set timetable for me asking me at wat time I should get up n sleep ,managing household chores even after travelling to office for hours together ,she did nt cook a descent meal wen my husband n I are bk from work n expected me to do the cooking.

Forget a good meal at in laws ,hd terrible nightmares with my husbands brother n sil makimg noise at home n disturbing my sleep.

Few days had to do without meal as mil used to leave stale fud which my husband ate without making any fuss.

Weekends got terrible ,mil wanted to accompany my husband n me wherever we wanted to go n she also stopped my husband from going out with me to movies n Restuarant.

My husband,the guy whom I was dating since long time is a momma s boy came as a shock to me .

Heart broke continued with my marriage life as fights between my husband n me happened bcoz of my husband s mother ,brother n sil.

Like icing on cake ,came his relatives to taunt about me ,advicing me on how to cook.

Husband sil was a night mare ,during our absence she would spy around in our bed room n use our bathroom n litter around .Still remember the day I brushed my tooth at the terrace of my house as she hd littered our bathroom.on questioning her she would reply I dont know .

Brother in law ,is a miser even though earns well expects my husband to spend on his family expences .my husband s nephew relies on my husband for candies ,goodies n toys !!

Mil always showcase caring attitude when in front of my husband else its the same taunt.you dont know hw to chop vegetables n cook .dont know hw u ll manage n stuff like tat.

On shifting home,my husband is tied to his mom says he can't leave her bt hd can make me travel miles together for work n have stale fud n tolerate his brother n sil n his nephew .

How I hate them all

This is why you suck!

Posted on Mon, May. 23, 2016 at 03:29 pm

"It shouldn't bother me that my family never checks on us but it does."
And so I made a joke about how it'd be months before anyone noticed it I offed him.

I wanted to lighten the mood but yes, it's infuriating.

FIL makes me the most angry because we've tried to include him & add him in on holidays. We call. We visit. We initiate. But he's got a new girlfriend. DH has been waiting him out. He has not contacted us in OVER A MONTH! He lives in the next town!! We have the bulk of his grandkids.

And mil-you just suck. We know you don't care. We don't try to include you because even if DH does call you never ask about any of our family. Keep posting on fb like you love our kids, you never call or see them!

And to every grandparent & aunt/uncle, and cousin. You all suck. You live 30 minutes away max but never include DH in anything. You never contact him in anyway.
