Re: GSIL needs to grow up

Lindylou, GSIL sounds like she's got a little green-eyed monster :mrgreen: in her back pocket and it's making its way right up her butt. Too bad. For her. IMHO you are spending way too much time with her shallow little self. If she is not yet married, just tell her you can't wait until her big day t...

Re: Just Curious...Did your ILs see your posts here?

I don't have any in-laws with better than an eighth grade education. I don't think they can spell Google, much less inlaw, in law, or in-law.

I'm safe.... :lol:

Re: MIL's insensitive comments about miscarriage.

Thank God I've never had a miscarriage. When ESIL tried desperately to get pregnant when her DS got old enough for school it resulted in a miscarriage and complications that led to kidney dysfunction. So she said anyway. Within just a few days of the supposedly 'near death' kidney failure FIL gave h...

Re: Karma

:evil: Karma is a bit@h :evil: ESIL pitted her two brothers (DH and EBIL) against each other by telling lies and truths about the bad things they said about each other. She would call one to tell him what the other said, then would call the first to report the reaction. They already had a healthy ha...

Re: Just Curious...Do Your In Laws Have Friends?

MIL and FIL mostly had contact with extended family that were friends. They were also big name droppers, but that never impressed us, because we didn't know the local politician or bank VP. (We lived in a different state). After MIL passed, FIL did an excellent job of making friends at his large chu...

Re: If you have no contact do you....

DH and I have discussed this because both ESIL and C(clueless)BIL, her DH, are either in crappy health or they are extremely melodramatic. Only time will tell. EBIL is in awful health and I would be shocked if he lived another 5 years. We will get a call sooner or later about a serious hospitalizati...

Re: Do you ever get compliments?

Congrats on the weight loss! MIL was so strange about compliments and especially peoples weight. When I lost 45# 23 years ago, she kept telling me that I was too thin. She was a little scrawny stick of wrinkled skin with a cigarette sticking out of her mouth. The weirdness was that she thought every...

Maybe the title of this thread should be:

Re: Is It Worth It?

We are so grateful to be AWAY from the ILs and we have been for almost 30 years. I didn't know how badly my husband always wanted to live away from them until recently. The job he was offered in 1984 was the best excuse ever to get the heck out of town and stay out. If we were in the same state or (...

Re: Have you been around long enough?

I've known GSIL, now known as ESIL, since she was 6. She was not raised she was allowed. She was one of the most spoiled children with a bratty screaming nature I have ever known. She was intolerable when she was around her parents because they never corrected her behavior they just gave in because ...

Re: How to Convince DH it Will Never Be Fair

WDYHM When we were about your ages DH and I began the dialog about how wrong it was for ESIL and EBIL to be sucking the PILs dry of all their money. ESIL was about 20 and had just gotten married. EBIL was 27 and was married with his wife and had a 1 year old living in his bedroom at PILs house for a...

Re: Wedding (and wedding planning) and ILs

Wow. Your stories are terrible. The worst thing that the ILs did at my wedding was they got up and left as the rehearsal dinner was winding down. They had agreed to pay, made the arrangements and then just left without paying the check. My DF covered it, but I never forgot it. MIL was very manipulat...

Re: Guilt

In my weird case, the thing I feel the most guilt over is that I urged my DH to stay in greater contact than he really wanted to. For years when he "forgot" to call MIL on Sunday, I reminded him. I bought the gifts, arranged to send the bail-out money to all of them at one time or another. I thought...
