I have a full time job though and we are happy to share it but she thinks its wrong that he has to come home and do a bit of housework or washing up.
She is also always arranging these family get togethers for birthdays, Easter, etc and she always expects us to go. She can get a bit shirty if we are busy or have other plans. I think she will be a nightmare if we ever have children though.
We are hoping to move house soon. At the moment we live about a minute from them which I think is far too close. We are looking in an area about 10-15 mins away but you would think it is the other end of the country from the comments they've made. They seem to think they'll never see us again.
On the whole we get on quite well and I've learnt to ignore the little comments she makes. We have occasionally been out to lunch together and its been fine.
I think I'm quite lucky really as I've heard some awful stories about MIL's and mine is really quite nice. I tore the ligaments in my ankle a couple of weeks ago and have had trouble walking. She has been brilliant at making sure I've been alright. She does annoy me sometimes but she is really nice.
My inlaws irritate the hell out of me most of the time. They are a very patriarchal family and the man is da boss sort of thing. Definitely not to my liking at all.
DH has an older sis who drives me insane with her whining and self pitying "depression" The woman is trully not depressed she loves playing the victim. I know depression as I have lived with my mums severe depression all my life. It really is too long a story to go into.
But anyway back to the point Not much was expected of SIL as she was a girl. She trained to be a hairdresser and then ended up being a typist like mummy. DH went to university and is now a Financial Controller. He was definitely encouraged more as he was the boy.
MIL can never come to visit me during the week or have any sort of relationship with me as it will upset her daughter who is not really interested in her mum anyway.
I am not allowed to talk about being pg again as it upsets SIL as she EMOTIONALLY cannot have anymore children. Not my problem!
In laws think I spend all DH's money even tho I worked up until we had our little boy. But MIL loves that I stay at home.
If they ever do anything for us its always on their terms regardless whether or not it helps us out oh and they think their son is a career obsessed attention seeking obsessive when he is really not, he just works hard has pride in his work and they should be proud of him.
Despite the fact that they only love 10 minutes drive away we only see them about once a month and I have not seen SIL since January.
Sometimes inlaws just suck big style.
I like my MIL i just wish that she would make more od a effort to see alfie instead of waiting until we are down where they live to bring him over!!!!!!!!
I also wish to that when we were down there that we ddint have to take alfie into a pub so she could see him, i rember when he was sbout 9 weeks having to take him ion 1 fri evening i wasnt impressed
I absolutely hate, loathe and detest my MiL.
She is an utterly self-absorbed, selfish, stupid, childish, hateful, spiteful and nasty bitch.
Say how you really feel abbie :wik:
(Jokes aside, poor you, sounds like a nasty piece of work)

My ex mother in law was evil. When my son was born, she sent a basket of pink flowers with "girl" in pink display.The midwife was shocked
