Because you are an "outsider," and they think they are the only ones, the only family with "perfect kids." They are "snooty patooty" with their assess stuck up in the air, been there, done that, ha! Good luck! : )
Thank U 4 picking my answer as best.......AWESOME! : ) Hope it gets better for U there!
Because they CAN be. You're stuck with them...so why should they give a rat's @ss how they treat you?
I moved half way accross the country from mine so I have no idea .
Mine are good people but they were also mean to me.
role conflict and diverging social interests
insofar as they *are* mean, at least, sometimes it's just that we're being mean
I can't say why in-laws are mean. For me, I am divorcing so they would be ex-in laws, but they passed away before that all started.
And I miss them terribly! They were wonderful people who I loved dearly.
They treated me as a son and I did for them as I did for my own mother and father.
mine are really nice
bcuz they are related to your husband...
Mine are really nice.
You're lucky! We don't hear this lots.
