MIL - DIL Research Paper!

Welcome to  Our aim is to provide you with a place to Take a story or Leave a story about your favorite relatives.  While mothers-in-law usually provide us with a lot of good material, feel free to share the adventures of any other family member who steps up to the plate.  These pages are intended to amuse you as well as to provide you with a place to relieve your family induced stress.  With your help, we hope to provide a humorous look at the world of in-laws.

We want to hear your experience, whether it involves your engagement, wedding (or divorce), a holiday dinner, a gift you received, a comment, or a frustrating phone call (may we suggest caller ID), etc.  Please feel free to submit as many as you'd like (the more the merrier).

For example, here are a few of the mother-in-law stories previously submitted (and, of course, many thanks to all our contributors, whose stories can be seen via the links on this page):

bullet My in-laws came to visit on the day I brought my son home from the hospital.  I'd had a c-section and wasn't ready to move around a great deal, but they all wanted pizza for dinner.  So they made it.  From scratch.  When I looked out in the kitchen, there was flour everywhere.  And, though I had a dishwasher, they were piling all the dishes in the sink, just so I (according to MIL), "could wash them up when I was up and feeling better."

bullet At our wedding, my mother-in-law asked me (the bride), and her other daughter-in-law and son-in-law to step out of the pictures so the photographer (who we were paying for) could take some pictures of "her family".  So, there I was, the bride, standing on the side, watching her set up pictures of "her family".  Her son-in-law told me to get used to it, as she does this at all occasions (I still can't get used to it!).

bullet After over 18 years, 3 children, and the usual problems in a marriage, my husband and I have survived.  Now, my mother-in-law told me straight out that he should kick me out on the street.  She is very blunt about this to my children as well.  My youngest comes back to me and asks why "gramma wants daddy to kick you out."  My husband is spineless when it comes to her.  There are also 5 sisters that support my mother-in-law in her decisions.  I have told her to stay out of our lives, but I was never rude, just firm.  I have even brought the children up to see her, but they are getting to the point they don't want anything to do with her either.  I will not make them visit her.  To top it off, I am disabled and cannot do anything to please her.  She thinks I am "faking it", and does not understand why I do not work.

If you can "relate" to any of these stories, we hope to hear from you.  Next time you are fuming, visit us and find a sympathetic ear.  Writing your story can be therapeutic.  Reading one can be enlightening as well as entertaining.  Please tell a friend about us, too.  We welcome your comments and suggestions.  We will post the (appropriate) input we receive (as time and space permits).  Your stories will remain anonymous, as in the examples above.
