    Living In The Same Town As My "in-laws"

    I'm not totally sure why they don't like me, I assume it was when I jumped all over them for getting into mine and my hubby's relationship yrs ago.. They constantly used to come over and tell us how to live our lives and how to run our relationships, etc. I just had enough of it...

    The weekend was going good

    until I found out that my M-I-L practised reiki on my son. Something that we don't believe in and don't want her messing with. We were so close to having a good weekend. So close. Now I'm just mad.

    because they can't afford to rent anymore after deciding to retire early. They now babysit my children, two attend kindergarten one 6 months old. In return, we will provide for them, pay their health insurance, pension and $400 salary which they asked for. My husband and I work...

    Its not that I don't like them.

    I just don't like being disrespected by people. First it was his sister lying to me and telling me she didn't know the girl that my husband had a child with that he lied about and kept from me for a year. I found out she was lying when I saw her passing messages to my husband...

    Going to their house this weekend.

    If I come home still feeling good about the person I am it will be a win. I am not book smart. Math? Ha. Forget it. They are engineers. I sometimes have blonde moments (even though I'm not blonde) and they just shake their heads. Husband used to think it was cute, now he shakes...

    It's not that I don't like them exactly (and

    they aren't even in laws yet, but it's going to happen soon). It's just that they're constantly in our business and they blow things WAY out of proportion and constantly want my girlfriend to leave me and come back "home"... Like last night her Aunt was here, and she and I...

    I just realized that

    if you dont like a certain trait of your partner. You will find that particular trait in his family member and it is usually way bigger n way more magnified than in your partner. I never thought that being married is so hard. Worst of all is when none of the in laws is easy to...

    Low Woman On Totem Pole

    My in laws are strange, I don't hate them, I just don't care for them.  My biggest pet peeve about them is the gift giving at Christmas and birthdays.  I would go out of my way to shop for them -MIL, FIL, SIL(2) and nieces(2) specifically for things they would like.  What do I...

    Not Quite, Yet, Though.

    We're not married yet, but planning on it. So, I know I'm going to have to deal with these people forever and I'm not sure if that thrills me. At first, I really liked everyone. Then, I got to know them well by spending way more time around them. I really, really like my...
