let's start a MIL from hell thread

Recommended Posts

Anyone who's destination wedding was monopolized by their MIL's raise your hand!!

Ok, I'll go first. Mine followed us around the entire 6 days, whining that we had to spend every minute wth her. Took control of all the dining and seating arrangements, placing my family at the end of the table so we couldn't converse. Ignored my mother and disreguarded her and every person in my group. Wore the gaudiest dress ever to my wedding, and was swimming every day in shorts and a white t-shirt, no bra (the sunburn hurt her back, she says.

Oh and her toast was "may all of your up's and down's be in the bedroom!"

Did I mention she didn't even give us a card?

Come on ladies, tell me about your MIL's!!!

Wow... I think I will get lucky (and unlucky because I really feel bad for my FI)... but my FMIL will not be there. She is currently living with us and has been for the last year. My FI finally lost his patience with her and asked her to find another place. She will be out Nov 22! I can't wait :) She is unfortunately the type of person that has never took responsibility for herself. She has been married 5 times, 4 of which ended in divorce and the 5th was on its way but he passed on before it was finalized. We were the only ones in her family that would take her in, and now that we can't handle it anymore she has written to everyone and talked about how horrible we are - especially me. She calls me Blecky (bleh). She was told before she moved in with us that we are a NO smoking house and that she would need to contribute $250 as "rent", but mostly to cover utilities. She has the entire basement to herself, living room, full bath, bedroom w/ walk in closet. The only thing she doesn't have is a full kitchen, but does have a mini fridge and microwave down there. That was supposed to be the kids' (her grandchildren) playroom down there but she made such a big stink about the kids being down there and playing we moved it upstairs. Anyway she decides that in July she is doesn't want to pay $250, that she only feels she is getting $100 out of the house and utilities. She also decides that she wants to smoke again. She is on chemo and had to quit her job (that she worked at for 2 years which was the LONGEST job she had in her entire life), so she is on disability. She is fighting cancer yet after 6 months of not smoking decides to start again?! WTF! Anyway so when Jack spoke to her about the rent and smoking issues she told him that she was not going to help him pay for his trips to Mexico (which my parents paid for most of), or his scuba diving, or my engagement ring or for him to have the kids more often. So that is when he told her that she is not paying for those things, we both have good jobs that pay for that. Since she lives in the house there is no reason she can't contribute to it at least until her disability is done. That is the very, very short version! So... although I won't have to deal with her at my wedding, I've had to deal with this for the last year of my life!

I really expected nothing more from this woman, but the "no card" thing really upset me. This is the same woman who brags about spending $60k on her daughter's wedding. I am interested to know about any other stories from brides here. This could be a good thread for blowing off steam!

I have a FFIL law from hell- does that count at all? The man drives me and FI batty. He is completely self centred and his constant womanizing in the very small town FI grew up in made his adolescence a nightmare. I especially enjoyed his constant sexist comments whenever he visited our home before we moved away(which wasn't often, he's also a total deadbeat Dad). He sent FI a (cheap) T-shirt for Xmas last year, that's it- no thought or effort at all. He has had plenty of notice (I'm talking years- we've had a long engagement) about the fact that we're having a DW but expressed no interest in coming and saved not a penny for it, and now whines to family how hard it is on him that he wont be able to be there, blah blah. He has yet to man up and tell FI himself that he's not coming, though, I guess we were just supposed to find out when he RSVPed no? I am so relieved that he's not going to be there that I could dance, and I feel guilty about it.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
