    Hateful Mental Father Inlaw

    I have been in a relationship for a little over 5 years. We both recently had a son. My father inlaw has always been abusive to his wife, his children, his family. For the most part they have always put up with his rude behaviour. He yells if he finds a speck of dust on the...

    My Father In Law...

    I've been married to my husband since the 80s and we're both in our 50s, we live in the UK. My husbands father is a right mean old man, he always has been. He is now 82 years old but hasn't mellowed down at all and still seems to think he can knock anyone out, any age, any time...

    My Father-in-law Is Crazy!!!!

     My previous stories may seem cruel, but certainly not meant to be.Update: Father-in-law's copd/emphyseme is in end stages and the doctor thinks he has only months left, but hard to tell. Meanwhile, he developed a more severe bacterial infection in lung that did not clear up. So...

    I really try to not hate anyone.

    But my father in law has a self-fulfilling prophecy of everyone hating him. Everyone ends up eventually ends up disliking him for one reason or another. It could be the fact he smells bad because he never bathes. It could be his racist beliefs, his ignorant ways, or how he...

    I, too, have my very elderly father in law living with us. I don't hate him and he's basically a nice man, but realize now our problems (full house--adult children + father) really came about when we didn't talk out how this was going to all work when he first moved in. You...

    I got married a little over two years ago. My husband was living in a home that he purchased with his father. He felt obligated to stay (financially) until we could sell the house, split the profits, and go our separate ways. We were thinking one year at the most. Well, two...
