About Me

  1. Hi All, thanks for reading. I have been with my girlfriend for 4 years. We are engaged to be married next year and have just bought our dream house together. I get on ok with her mother but i am struggling to hide how much i dislike her from my partner. I love her dad though he is brilliant. Firstly, she (MIL) is rude, very abrupt, when i first met her she couldnt have been less interested in making a first impression. I have been raised to always be very polite. She treats my 26 yr old girlfriend like a baby, arranges to go to her medical appointments with her, still bought her underwear
  2. I'm a 28-year-old man. My future father-in-law wants to leave me with a legacy of his thriving business, but he wants something in return. Why does he want me to take on my fiancée's surname?
  3. It’s no secret. I am an introvert and don’t like company. In doses. Husband is a good man. We spent a lot of money doing up our home. Moved into a good suburban place and great for kids too. I had to spend 9 months living at in-laws. Wasn’t happy about this but there wasn’t a choice as we wanted to free up money from previous home to do the refurb. We were living with them, they would visit our house project daily too. I appreciate they cooked, and gave us a roof over our heads but missed our own space. I really struggled with all this. In the process, a house opposite me two doors dow
  4. My father-in-law has dementia with his Parkinson's. I am not too knowledgeable about either thing. My in laws were visiting this past weekend. As an example my FIL out of the blue hands my son $100 and says , " we may miss your birthday because we might not see you." Then not even 5 minutes later he does the same thing even though we explained absolutely he would see his grandson before that and on a combined birthday because they are only 2 days apart in birth days. Now he would have done this a third time had his wife not stopped him. I am gathering his dementia is getting advanced?
  5. So my MIL will visit us to meet our newborn(2 months old now),she lives in an other country and is staying 2 weeks.Me and her we never got along while we lived together in her house(1 year).She used to fight with both me and my husband(because he protected me against her).She even tried to kick me out of her house ,so anyway we do not live together or in same country anymore,thankfull for that. I told my husband i think 2 week is a long time and he got angry at me,and said she is my mom she has the right to stay here for 2 weeks as it is my home just like yours.I am ok with that but i know
  6. My ex mother in law just asked me to call my ex husband. It's almost been 5 years since he walked out of our son's life. We have not seen him once and I have had to ask for help through Facebook because I have no other way of reaching him. I was completely blind sided when he fessed up to his lying about work. Then I was flabbergasted when my mother in law told me that he was with someone else. I have known him since I was 14 and he was my first bf. If I call him and we try to have a meeting for closure what do I say? I am a big baby and a hot head. I don't want him to have any power over me.
  7. My mother in law has crossed the line and called me out of my name bc my husband wouldn’t do what she wanted him to do.But recently she has taken it a step further and disrespected me again on top of harassing me.Being nosey in my hubbys phone I noticed they’ve been speaking everyday when I went out of town for a funeral.Am I wrong to feel betrayed on his part when he knows how bad she disrespected me and he keeps speaking to her like nothing is wrong??
  8. For the third time this year my MIL has landed her butt in the hospital because she decides taking her meds is not something she needs to do based on side effects and the fact that doctors are stupid ( based on the fact that well she knows everything since she went to school till she was 15) ( sarcasm🙄) She admitted as much yesterday to me. She didn’t take her meds three times this year and ended up in the hospital. She’s so stubborn and stupid to the point she’s probably going to kill herself. This is more of a rant than anything. She is causing my husband so much grief and worry.
  9. I think my mother in laws partner is cheating. He told his partner, my mother in law, that his Facebook was hacked and mysteriously all the photos of them together, the photos of us and the rest of the kids were gone, plus we were all unfriended. Ok so clearly I didn't buy that for a second, hackers don't delete pictures and select people at random to unfriend. My hubby and I requested his friendship again and he kept ignoring it, so we messaged him off line saying "what's up, add us on fb" so he did. We then checked his Facebook last night after a month of forgetting and there is
  10. Hello please forgive my writing as English as not my first language. My name is Peter, I am 26 years old and have a 5 year old daughter. I live in Asia and want to give some background. In my last year of high school I began dating my wife. I am sorry if I get wordy now as I can feel the overwhelming pain washing over me. When I started dating my wife my world was very empty. My mother died when I was a child and my father fell into a deep depression and alcoholism. My life at home was very unstable. I was not dealing well with my mother's death in my own way and by the time I was 17 it see
  11. We went to see my in-laws for mine and my MIL’s combined birthday. For the past year since my in-laws got really sick and have been needing a lot of care my sister-in-law has been incredibly rude to my husband.( her brother) Now keep in mind we live three hours away and they have refused all kind of outside help. Do not even bring it up with them it’s not even going to be considered. Anyway my sister-in-law has been increasingly rude to each visit . Yesterday she was 2 1/2 hours past the time she said she was going to be there without a call. Then after the meal when her mother
  12. I have a question about my mother. Let me start off by saying I love my mother so much and would do anything I could for her. I am currently living with my husband and my in-laws ( temporarily). My mother has been going through a rough time lately , my step-dad left - she never worked I was young and in college at the time so we couldn't afford to pay the rent there or anywhere else this was about 6 yes ago. She recently moved, rented a room from a guy she met on Craigslist, she has been there about 5 months and now she's always complaining about him , talking about the way he treats her but s
  13. Hey guys, I hope you are all having a great time. I would like to talk about a matter that is bothering both me and my girlfriend and it has to do with her mother. Me and my girlfriend are together for almost 3 years and my relationship with her mother since she got to know me was what someone would say neutral. I would greet her and stuff but nothing beyond that. The last couple of months though, things have changed and not for the better. It all started when she made an account and started to talk to other people online, and mostly talk with men. She even has dated some of them and
  14. Ladies, would you be upset if you’re newly married, do everything for your husband (ask for nothing in return) and then have him post on Facebook on his mother’s birthday that “ Happy Birthday to the most amazing woman I know” ?
  15. So as the title says have you ever just let a person or situation go around and around in your head till it drove you nuts and what did you do to stop it. I am right now and its driving me nuts, no matter what I try to do to stop it, it keeps coming back and start thinking about it again and Im so tired of it. This involves my partners father, he will never be my father in law. Anyway he is an ignorant ----- and I cannot stand being with him, I avoid any conversation with him but sometimes try and then regret it. This is one of those times. I dont really want to waste time trying to descri
  16. This weekend we were at my husband’s cousin’s place. She told me in private that my husband’s parents were extremely emotionally abusive to my husband and his sister . That their house was a house of hell and she has no clue how they became good people . ( my sister-in-law ,well, that’s debatable) I knew he was badly emotionally abused ,but she alluded to the fact it was much worse than I thought not that he will ever say that , ever. He is extremely loyal to his parents. I think because he is terrified of them . Should I just keep mum about this info ?
  17. Hello everyone, So my MIL passed away Monday morning at 2am. My husband and I took the 5 minute drive to say our goodbyes. I was due to go to work early that day, so I thought I'd stay to say my goodbyes and pay my respects to the family who cared for her at the time of her death. As time ticked on, the Dr came round to declare time of death and then the undertakers were called to collect her at 6am. The people present were my sister and brother in Law (her carers) and my husband and myself. So my sister in law and I agreed we should wash and dress her instead of total strangers, it i
  18. Dear anyone who will listen, I recently had my baby son who I adore love and cherish more than anything in the whole world... well, I say recently, he is now 7.5 months old. But! Still very much a baby. The problem I have is coming from my husbands Mum. I haven't left my son with anyone but my husband for longer than a few hours. I just can't seem to bring myself to do it. I feel physically panicked and upset at even the thought of it. I recently breast fed him and have only just weaned him onto solids and formula milk. I think this made us very close and for 7 months solid I have so
  19. Hello me and my fiancé have been together for four years, been engaged for eight months, me and his mom never really got along and she's always has verbally abused me when no one was around or to her son about me and the last time she came to visit, I didn't disrespect her, but when she went ahead and did it again I snapped, I just told her that I had enough with how she treats me like that and my fiancé sided with her, not knowing what was going on.. this lady has once told my fiancé that he would be disowned in the family, if he got on the airplane to be with me and my fiancé believe her
  20. I managed to get over my anger issue with my mother in law (previous post will explain) after the advise you guys gave, but now the holidays are approaching and normally I would buy her a gift off the both of us, this year for obvious reasons I have told my boyfriend he will have to do it by himself and he said that was fine. But I can see him struggling as he's working a lot so doesn't have the time and also doesn't know what to get her. I feel extremely guilty like I'm making him suffer when I could easily just go to the store tomorrow and het her something I know she would like, she wouldn'
  21. Hi all, I haven't been on here in awhile, I got married recently and have been experiencing some issues with my new mother in law. It started before the wedding, just little intrusive things like her wanting to be more involved in the planning, and because we were having a very low-key wedding with few people, there really wasn't much to plan, so she went ahead and took it upon herself to just start finding things to do, without asking first But the real issues have come after the wedding. My husband suffered a head injury and is having trouble recovering. His mom, is a nervous hypochond
  22. Hey guys, So me and my fiance were having alittle fun at my in-laws house. We were sitting watching a movie in the other lounge with the lights off. Things got a little heated and we ended up having alittle fun. One thing led to another, and she started giving me amazing head. I'm standing there in the other lounge room getting some amazing head. My fiance is on her knees and im standing up enjoying my time. As I turn and look side to side because of how much I'm enjoying it, I look out the window and what do I see? 2 eyes staring straight at me in absolute SHOCK! It was her mother peaking

  24. So..me and my wife have been together for 4 years and have a 2 year old son. My mum, dad, brother and 4 sisters all like my wife but her mum, dad, sister and brother hate me for absoloutly no reason (that I know of) The second day after me and my then girlfriend started going out my wife's mum called her just to tell her that her brother and her did not like me and found me very intimidating (heavily tattooed). They made thier judgment immediately before even speaking to or meeting me. My mother in law makes things very difficult, refuses to speak to me, will rarely come to see her grandson be
  25. I have lived with my wife and mother in law since 1998 since my father in law died. I have always found my mother in law attractive but never done anything because I loved my wife and was faithful to her. My wife died in March 2016 and since then my feeling for my mother in law have gotten a lot stronger. I think I have fallen in love with her. Myself and her do almost everything together like a family, we share looking after my 3 children housework cooking cleaning etc we also went on 2 holidays and at birthdays and stuff we go for a meal or something. We have not been intimate in any way. I
