    Desperate Housewives

    Did anyone watch the show last night? Whether your a mil or dil, the storyline was hysterical. "Mike's" mother IS my mil! I swear the writers must have interviewed my mil to come up with that characterization. If you didn't see the show, the mil was alone with Susan...

    Bitter Dil

    I was a bitter DIL, and to some degree, I still am. However, the best and most valuable and helpful advice I've gotten is from other MILs. I have MIL friends in my real life who have problems with their daughter-in-laws, yet they like me and I like them. I feel like I helped them...

    Blaming the Dil

    In my husband's family, I noticed right away that I was blamed for anything they don't like in their relationship with us. When I was pregnant with my first child, I had all-day every day morning sickness for several months. There was a family holiday party and I knew there was...

    Imagine a scenario that happens very day. Martha's son gets married only to find that her new DIL, Beth, obviously does not want her around very often. When Martha attempts to make plans with Beth and Martha's son, John, they always seem to be busy. Not only that, but Beth...
