508Mother -in-law Stories
- Sep 26, 2006Have I got a few horror stories for you!
My mother-in-law has threatened to call Child Protection Services on
me at least twice for "starving the kids". I had to take them to the
doctor to prove that the children had in fact gained weight.
My mother-in-law has threatened to take me to court to sue for
Grandparents rights after refusing to visit the children for over one
My mother-in-law decided that I had control over my husband and that I
needed to "make him come home". When I said he was a "big boy, and
can make decisions on his own", she replied that "he has the mantality
of a 13 year old and is incapable of making his own decisions..."
My mother-in-law tells other people that she thinks the SCA is
satanic, but tells us that she fully supports us in our "chosen
My mother-in-law stood up in front of the entire family at
Thanksgiving one year and stated, "I am thankful for Gilane [my
mundane name] because she thinks like a man..."
My mother-in-law refuses to confirm our schedule before making plans
for the whole family. She will simply call us and tell us when the
party is and expect us to just show up, regardless of whether or not
we had previous plans.
My mother-in-law has been known to say that the only reason she
accepts me is because God told her I was supposed to marry her son.
The latest, and certainly not the least...
My car had spun out its rod bearings and needed a new engine.
Expensive to rebuild (approx $1500), much less replace (approx $5300).
My mother-in-law said that she had a van that should take half the
cost to fix (approx $800 - $1000). She only told me of a few things
wrong with it, and said that it was in good condition. She said the
deal was if we pay to fix it, she would sign it over. Now that we
have cleaned it up, the total work done ($1800 already paid with $1300
to go) comes to twice the amount it would have taken to fix the
original car. Turns out there was WAY more wrong with it than she
said. When we asked my father-in-law, he said they knew about the
extra damage, but my mother-in-law specifically instructed him to say
nothing. She lied to her own son in order to dump her problem into
his lap. We are now stuck with not one, but two money pits; thanks to
I tell people that I am "required" to love my mother-in-law; because
if I didn't, I would strangle her. Am I insane to consider these
issues? I would feel a lot better knowing I am not the only person
having problems with my mother-in-law.
