    Mother-in-law Problem Fix

    When I married my husband 29yrs ago my mother-in-law did not like me at all.  You see, I was raised in a small country town and he in a city.  She did things very differently than I did.  I had good manners and had social graces and knew which fork to use and how...

    When Will I Get Over This..

    When my husband and i first got together, we didn't have any problems either with his family or mine; they liked me; i liked them; they always gave joe a hard time, never letting him use the phone; never letting him see me in which his only choice was to ride his bike to see me...

    My husband's side of the family is more than just dysfunctional! They play favorites and tear down my husband for all his short comings. It's disgusting. My own mother in law didn't even say she loved my husband! Can you believe it's taking that ***** over 1 YEAR to get me some...

    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...

    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 use the pill. I don't like condoms because they make sex feel artificial, like I want skin to skin, not skin to rubber. It feels nice but nothing beats actual human touch. xx
