    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...

    I really hate spending time with my husbands

    mother and sister . They come across as very superficial, and I literally feel exhausted from trying to make conversations with them. Has anyone heard the song "Let Me Take a Selfie"? Let's just put it this way... I hear the song and immediately the faces of my fabulous in laws...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
