  1. In-laws won't respect husband's wishes.

    Hi, everyone! I am new here and I am still trying to learn the ropes. So, please bear with me!

    My husband and I have been married for four years and together for six. We started dating in high school and got married after we graduated. The entire time we were dating and engaged his parents acted like they loved me, but started playing a different tune as soon as we said our vows. After we got married my husband and I moved in together and started trying to live our lives as a couple ...

  2. Help! My mother-in-law won't stay out of our bedroom (LONG story)

    Anyway, I've never had any major problems with my MIL until this week, and I suppose that's because she has never stayed at our house since my boyfriend and I have been together. We have a newborn son who is only 2 months old and they live fairly far away, so they decided to come stay with us for a few days to spend time with their son and grandson.
  3. HELP!!! In-laws gone wild just in time for the holidays...

    Looking for some advice and really just to vent a bit about a pretty significant in-law issue. To give some a little background, my in-laws live about an hour away in a very rural area, and our daughter is really the only grandchild with whom they have any contact, so we go out of our way to make sure she sees them regularly. About 4 months ago, when we were visiting them, my outspoken FIL made a comment to our 6 year old daughter that she’d gotten very ‘fat’ and went on and on ...
  4. Christmas IL "debockle"

    Some years ago, a young woman wrote the blog entry below. As far as we can tell, she has not been back since.

    However, for some reason, this post -- and ONLY this post -- is drawing spammers. Last night I deleted over 85 pages of spam, more than 1700 individual posts. This afternoon when I checked, there were more than 250 pages and more were being generated even as I tried to clear them.

    I hate to do this, but when the spamners can generate their sludge so fast, ...

  5. My mother in law is a b****

    Okay- I would like to apologize for what I am about to say. But I really need to vent this out. If anyone has any ideas please send it.
    My husband and I have been together for 8 years. We just bought our first home this year! Yes his mom did help with money to get in our home but she already has a home in a different state! Within 1 month and maybe 2 weeks of living in our new home his mother moves in. She didn't hesitate to take my decorations down and put hers in every room and every corner ...
