Re: FIL's fake birthday

Melody- That article makes a lot of sense. I know lots of people in the generation older than me who faded away soon after they retired. My father had two challenging and interesting careers, one after the other, and when he retired, he just didn't have the excitement that he had lived with so long....

FIL's fake birthday

FIL's birthday is coming up soon and he claims to be very close to 100. That's as fake as the rest of his life. According to documents and court records, FIL is in his very early 90s. Here's the results of his 9 decades of living on this planet: - Everyone hates him, including his special favored da...

Re: Interesting Headline

You were a stabilizing influence in your IL's lives, and they came apart when you stopped having contact with them. We can only do so much; they vacuum out our souls, they grab for our money, they try to devalue us while at the same time we are the best things that have happened to their family. The...

Re: How to get rid of in laws?

I agree with PMIHP and WhyOhWhy. There is a slight chance that your fiancee will learn to put you first, but his family has already been told that he values them more and undoing that is almost impossible without an ugly fight over many years. Why would they want to come live near you if they hate y...

Re: Stepmonster may have had a stroke

I've never heard of dialysis for a UTI unless there was kidney involvement. It's ironic that the tables have turned for StepMonster and she's getting some of what she dished out. I have to admit to a bit of Schadenfreude when I hear of mean ILs getting into a tough spot because I wonder if they are ...

Re: Interesting Headline

I wonder if CBIL is paying taxes. If he's not keeping up the maintenance on the house and is involved with drugs, he might lose the property and Eddie won't inherit anything. Additionally, CBIL is probably doing to have court expenses. I'll bet the house smells like smoke, dirty underwear and shame.

Re: FIL’s horrible habit of opening DH’s mail

I was raised to respect other peoples' privacy and it was a strict rule in my childhood home that no one opened mail addressed to another person, my brother and I were not allowed in each other's rooms without permission from the other, and no one went into my parents' room ever. I have never checke...

Re: FIL stuck in his old folk's home alone during the pandemic

Miwako- Serves your FIL right! My FIL was put in strict quarantine for two weeks because the staff members were afraid that he'd picked up the virus and spread it throughout the place. It was like house arrest, he couldn't leave his room, couldn't have any company, the staff would put his food outsi...

Re: What has MIL ridiculed you for?

I wish that I could have had the right words to say to my MIL when she was criticizing me and my children. I think that was the motivational thing that made me search online and find this wonderful site so many years ago, desperately looking for validation about my ILs and finding the words to say t...

Re: FIL stuck in his old folk's home alone during the pandemic

Miwako- Did your FIL's country issue a stay at home order? If so, any word if he's surviving being alone with your SMIL? RubyCrownedKinglet- You have great intuition! FIL SNEAKED OUT of La Casa de Geezers and was caught!! Apparently, he was doing this for awhile but he messed up and went past the se...

FIL stuck in his old folk's home alone during the pandemic

My FIL went to live in La Casa de Old Geezers a few years after MIL died. If he had been even moderately decent, I would have welcomed him to come live with us. Many of you have followed my posts over the years that described his psychopathic behaviors, his outrageous outbursts and his thoroughly me...

Re: What has MIL ridiculed you for?

My MIL criticized me for every single aspect of my existence. When my DH was out of hearing, she would scornfully say things to me that showed her complete dislike and disdain. I guess that would be considered ridicule, except when I think of that word, I think of people possibly laughing. My MIL al...

Re: MIL's ashes, a questionable diagnosis, and FIL's move

That's quite a responsibility to put on someone, giving them the ashes of a family member. If your DH agrees, I'd contact your SIL and give her a time limit to take the ashes if she wants them. If not, think of a nice place to scatter them, have a simple ceremony, and be finished with it. Perhaps sh...

rdavis3- You told your FIL how you feel, your DH asked him why he wasn't making any effort and you haven't gotten any adequate response from your FIL. It appears that he doesn't care, he just wants to be able to say that he has a relationship with his GD and he's not going to budge about trying to w...

Re: Another generation is born into the toxic ILs

Oh yes, I'm staying away from that mess... 2200 miles away. I can practically hear the screaming over here despite the distance. It's got to be absolute hell in that household. FN has posted some photos of the baby on social media and they strike me as peculiar. The baby does not have her eyes open ...
