My mother-in-law (63F) has been staying over during this pandemic. She can be a little overbearing, but she's a nice person and it's been fine for the most part. Other people in the house are myself (32F), my husband (33M), and our kids (6F, 4F, 3M).
Every day the younger two are in bed by 8 and the oldest by 9. My MIL goes to bed around 11. My husband and I usually go to bed past midnight. Well, from around 9 to 11, my husband, myself, and sometimes my MIL are in the living room watching TV, talking, laughing, etc. Sometimes I go to the bathroom and use the toilet or take a shower.
My MIL has been on my case about how I'm "disrupting the kids' sleep" and how we can't be so loud at night. If it were up to her, we would only be whispering past the kids' bedtime and not flushing the toilet after taking a shit. It's not like we're yelling or listening to music or partying—we're literally just doing normal everyday activities. Also, the kids sleep fine.
The thing is, my husband has a... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m currently 33 weeks pregnant with my first baby, a little girl and I’m absolutely ecstatic. I was told at 19 that I was infertile so to have this miracle come along is just an absolute blessing and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve been with my husband, the father, for just over 3 years.
The issue comes with his mother. She is possibly the most overbearing woman I have ever met. I’m almost positive that in her mind her son is still 12 years old. I got on with her great at the beginning of our relationship but after we moved in together she was at our house literally every single night, and wouldn’t leave until about 10pm. She also talks to me as though I’m just an incubator for her sons child, sometimes she’ll just talk to my stomach without even acknowledging me which feels so dehumanising. She and my husband are very close, but I feel as though I have no time alone with him because she is constantly there.
I honestly don’t want her in the delivery room when I give birth but my husba... keep reading on reddit ➡
This actually happened about thirty minutes ago and I still can't process it.
So my fiancée and I live together in our house and because of the whole quarantine thing, she was worried about her mother being all alone so we invited her to stay with us and she agreed. A bit awkward at first but she's good company and passed the awkward stage within two days.
Yah so I woke up this morning and my fiancée wasn't in bed but I could hear the shower in our bathroom. Feeling a bit frisky, I decided to join her and maybe play around a bit. Got fully naked and ready to go. I opened the door and the speakers in the bathroom were playing music and then it hit me. Maybe I should tiptoe in and seductively start kissing from behind like in the movies. It looks hot there so maybe it'll be the same in real life right? So I stealthily made it into the shower and wrapped my arms around 'my fiancée'. When she screamed I just started laughing (second wrong move) and said in a deep voice, "it's just me bab... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m still emotional about all of this and I just want some perspective.
Background: Two years into our marriage, my husband Kyle cheated on me with one of his colleagues, Madison. Kyle immediately admitted what happened and he said that it was a drunken one-time thing that they both regretted. We were having a rough patch in our relationship at that time because of the stress of being unable to conceive, so I tried to understand him and gave our relationship another chance. I was gutted when he later told me that Madison was pregnant, but what’s done was done and the only thing I could do was accept it. They now have a son, Kit. Kyle’s parents adore Kit and they have him once a week every Friday. I don’t begrudge them for that and I myself care about Kit like a stepson because none of any of this is his fault.
Which brings us to the issue. For Mother’s Day my FIL had an artist draw a Disney-style family portrait of their family. My MIL sent a picture of the portrait that they put in... keep reading on reddit ➡
My wife's parents are not accepting of queer folk. They didn't attend our wedding and tried to call DCF on us twice.
I'm not fond of them and I really don't want them in my life but that's not quite my call.
Anyways the other day I get a text from my mother-in-law about how I should enroll our children in a private, Catholic school. I'm an atheist, my wife's an atheist and our oldest (only school aged child) is a pagan.
I told her to kindly fuck off and stay out of my parenting.
She got pissy at me and started going off about how she had so much more experience parenting than me and I replied "yeah and all of your children hate you, guess you're just a shitty parent, not surprising since you're such a fucking disgusting woman you wouldn't attend your daughter's wedding because of your religion though."
She got mad and started calling my wife who didn't answer, then she called my parents who told me I should apologise and be the bigger person.

My wife’s mother has been staying with us to help with kids during the coronavirus. Yesterday I was on the floor in the den playing with the kids and kept getting this waft of soured smell. My mother in-law was sitting about 3 feet behind me on the couch. I initially thought it was feet or something. I asked if anyone else smelled it and everyone said no. I kept smelling it and was finally like “ y’all don’t smell that?? It reaks”. My mother in law turned bright red and said she would go take a shower.
It was so awkward. Today we’ve just acted like nothing happened. My wife and I talked about it last night and agree it was super awkward.
Backstory: I'm posting this here since I would prefer to get some female opinions. I am a male in my early 30's. Married my high school sweet heart 5 years ago. We moved across the country to Southern California where there are a lot of Mexicans/Mexican Americans. MIL (mother in-law) made my FIL (father in-law) get a job all the way out here so they could be closer. After a few years out here, my wife and I had a child (2.5 years old now). My MIL started regularly watching our child when my wife went back to work. I've got a bit of a rocky history with my MIL. She was very unaccepting of me for the first few years, but we sorta moved passed that. We mainly butt heads because she's overbearing & tries to involve herself in our relationship where she shouldn't. She's an immigrant from Iran, but she's been in the states since she was a teenager. Her husband (FIL) is a white American. My wife is their only child. MIL has no friends, no career, isn't well educated, lives vicario... keep reading on reddit ➡
Quick backstory: my mother didn't raise me and her parents did. She's always chosen guys and partying over me and my siblings. This is why CPS has taken all 3 of her kids away. Once I became an adult joined the military she would hit me up every couple of months asking me to give her different sums of money. She works but it's a BS job. Eventually I asked her why doesn't she get a real job and her response, "because I would be miserable doing that. Here I got to talk shit to people and have fun." That's all good if you can pay your bills, but she can't. She's done the same thing to my sister who was also in the military.
Anyway, I talk to her roughly 3 or 4 times a year. Last week she was asking me when I finish school where I will be moving to. I told her I don't know. Her response was "well wherever you go, you know I need a mother-in-law suite to stay at." My response was no I don't. After that, I got bombarded with how my generation doesn't know anything about respect and how I w... keep reading on reddit ➡
Morning guys. I'm feeling shitty after receiving a sobbing phone call from my brother's MIL. Here's the story.
Me and the wife have been looking at houses for a while. I bought my first house over 10 years ago when I was single and hadn't met my wife yet. I used my brother's MIL, as I visit them occasionally for my nephews birthdays and holidays. She's a nice person, however there were a few things that weren't done correctly when the house was purchased. I shrugged it off and didn't think about it too much.
After a few years I met my wife and with both our incomes we decided to buy a bigger house. I put in a lot of work into the house I bought and with both our incomes and the proceeds from the house we could afford a bigger house. My wife's friend is a realtor, and wanted to use her. I didn't really think much of it and let her.
Brother's MIL calls and tells me she's hurt we didn't use her, she would have given us the "family discount" (note the family discount I found doe... keep reading on reddit ➡
I don't understand why you can't socialize with the family. In my opinion (although I know my opinion does not matter), you are only hurting DS.
The purpose of the stay home order was to flatten the curve to let hospitals catch up. That happened six weeks ago.
None of us are sick. I feel you are the ones who will get sick when you decide to enter society again because you haven't been out of your house to even let your immune systems accept and fight off the everyday things humankind faces each and every regular day.
Don't get mad, this is just my own opinion.
I am so grateful to have formed a bond with DS that will forever be. Would be nice to have that same bond with DD before I leave here but it doesn't look promising. You are the most stubborn of my children (a <FIL's last name> thing for sure), but put your stubbornness aside for the sake of your children. It's time to stop living in fear.

I went out, but another copy, ran it under the faucet, and left it beside her bed.
I do not have a mother-in-law because my wife's mother passed 12 years ago. I am definitely the lucky one.
Just a clarifier: my wife and I are a lesbian couple, legally married in an extremely conservative southern state in the Bible Belt.
Right before we got married, my maternal grandmother became very ill, and we were told she had only weeks to live. My grandmother was an incredible woman with whom I was very close. So FW (future wife) and I rushed to Florida to say our goodbyes. It was decided to remove my grandmother from life support the next day, which happened to be my 29th birthday. I was, of course, devastated. My mother saw my FW trying to console me and later pulled me aside and said that she would not tolerate any PDAs between us because this was "her" family and I had "foisted" my FW on them and how was she to explain to her family that her only daughter was homosexual??? My mother than forbade either of us from attending the funeral.

know this sounds horrible but there's background. I've been married 20 years and I've never been close to her. She skips over our kids on holidays and hasn't acknowledged a birthday, except her own, for about 5 years. My husband, her son, doesn't speak to her because of verbal abuse he had from her growing up. My nieces and nephew (18, 19 and 21) also don't speak to her because she is an awful toxic person. In Feburary she texted me that she had breast cancer. Being a nurse, I jumped into action and got her set up with a visiting nurse, meals on wheels and a housekeeper. I brought her to her first appt so I could understand what type and the treatment options as she refuses to wear hearing aids and has a 6th grade education. I followed up with her brother who lives nearby and relayed what he needs to do to help her. Then came her first chemo appointment. It was 4 and a half hours.

Just so I can piss her off one last time...
Bit of info - My children see my mother in law a handful of times a year. She lives in a village an hour or 2 bus ride away depending which on route you take. She doesnt come to ours even though she has a lodger who drives her other places and tbh shes a little flaky when we make plans so we just go to hers when we are able to.
I call and facetime her atleast once a week so the kids can keep a good relationship with her but as you can probably tell already it's very much one sided but I do it because my kids have a great relationship with my side and I want the same with them and her.
The issue - mother in law called yesterday and asked if we had plans to go round when lockdown is over as she has something for the kids. I told her as soon as we can we will be over when its allowed. She asked to speak to the kids and told them the surprise. She had gotten a dog!

This is a lengthy one so we are going to do it in sections. Mother: my mother is the most self-absorbed person you’ve ever met in your life. She also has a habit of wanting everything I have. To the point she wants my dog, it’s creepy how handsome she tells my fiancé he is (pretty sure she wants him as well), and ANYTHING I wear. But it’s my mother right? So I hold my tongue and just go with it. She helped me pick out my wedding dress and she really hasn’t been involved in any of the other wedding planning. UNTIL, my wedding dress got hit by the tornado in Nashville and I just now got it- 5 months after it was supposed to be delivered. During this time that I didn’t have my dress my mom said to me, “I don’t care if you get your dress in time, you’ll look fine in whatever. I am worried that my dress won’t be beautiful.” Okay so my mom has had a breast reduction, eye life, and permanent makeup done to look “beautiful” for my wedding and has not asked once about my dress or how I’m dealin... keep reading on reddit ➡
So back in January/February I was hospitalized for 3 weeks. I am chronically ill and had to have two surgeries, the second resulted in a a lot of complications that didn't allow me to leave the hospital until the doctors were sure I was stable. I was also working at UPS at the time and ended up quitting because 1. I knew my supervisor was an asshole would be extremely angry about the doctor taking me out of work for so long. Legally he couldn't fire me for a medical reason, but he definitely would take his anger out on me. 2. The doctor told me that I shouldn't be lifting more than TEN pounds for the next 6 months, maybe longer...that would completely prevent me from doing my job. 3. I was already considering leaving and had a job interview lined up elsewhere.
Well then Corona happened and all hell broke loose. The place I was interviewing at closed down until June. So since then I have been looking for employment options else where. Obviously I have been having an extremely difficul... keep reading on reddit ➡
Not sure where to post this, I don't care if it's taken down, I'm just so happy right now.
Politics aside, my in laws are pretty awful, dumb people. I'll leave it at that. They say they aren't racist, but they prove with their actions that they are.
This morning my mother in law texted us that she started doing her own research into Trump, and she now sees that he is racists, and she said she will not vote for him in November.
I started crying. I know this is anecdotal, but if this movement can make HER start to question Trump, I believe we are making real change.
I still dislike them both, but this is an amazing step, and just made me so proud of this movement.
WE ARE NOT FIGHTING IN VAIN. WE WILL MAKE REAL CHANGE.

I already know the answer to this, I just want everyone to tell me what a bitch I’ve been.
My daughter was born 3 years ago. After 36 hours in labor I had a csection. After I had trouble breastfeeding, my milk never came in properly and after 2 months of pumping and supplements and praying and crying we gave up and switched to formula completely. I had my son 3 months ago, via section. I tried breastfeeding but again it didn’t work. I gave up quicker this time, and we are using formula.
My MIL has spent the last 3 years crowing about my failures as a mother. All her children were born naturally. She had no trouble breastfeeding. Csections are for quitters. Her body was just made to be a mother, but don’t worry dear, I’m sure you’re good at other things. Blah blah blah. It’s ramped up with the new baby. Every time I see her, which has been a lot, just little passive aggressive digs at me. My husband has asked her to stop, my FIL told her to stop, but she just plays dumb.

For reference I am a thin girl, 5’9” and 125 pounds. I wear a small shirt and a size 4 dress/pant. I also have a history of an eating disorder. My MIL was giving away some of her friend’s clothes for her and she asked me if I wanted this skirt. I asked what size it was and she said a size ten, and I said that was too big for me. A few minutes later she picks up a pair of pants and was like “Oh, these are a 10. Do you wear a 10?” I snapped back angrily, “Um, no!? I am a size four!” I felt bad I was snappy and rude about it but I found it annoying and offensive. Was I wrong in this situation? I feel like what she said was so rude!
So there is my bf’s mother. She’s a real mother hen and is very religious (not the crazy type). She’s had 6 children. In her opinion: woman’s greatest and only fulfilling achievement in life is having kids (no, one is not enough, the more the merrier). Only when a woman has bunch of children she can really be considered and feel whole.
She refuses to acknowledge the existence of women not wanting children or, god forbid, not feeling the 'godly motherly love' for their newborns. These women are only confused because they did not have one yet or did not hold it. She also defies the possibility of postpartum depression because no woman wouldn’t be thrilled to hold and care for their ‘precious wonder’. No, no, no it’s a myth told in the press for publicity. It’s a hoax. And what is it even about women that do not like children. What kind of madness it is??? Every woman loves children! We are made for them!

Grammy Pammy, as we call her, is staying with us this weekend for Memorial Day. She doesn’t have a filter and our relationship has been rocky since she whispered to DH that I was being hormonal when I was pregnant. Obviously it was loud enough that I could hear it. She said it in the middle of Home Depot so I didn’t say anything to avoid making a scene.
Anyways, we were in the kitchen today talking about how great LO is and she said something along the line of, “but he has ruined your body right?”. First of all, why do you need to ruin a positive conversation with a comment like that? Second, no! He hasn’t ruined my body! Yeah I’m still packing like an extra 15 pounds, BUT I pretty much fit in my old jeans, although they do give me a muffin top, and when I look in the mirror I am relatively happy with the way my body looks.

##INT. THE RUINS OF THE SITE-19 OFFICES, NIGHT
A group of 20 or so identical-looking clones are fighting amongst each other. Many of them are covered in bloodstains, bruises, or what can be assumed to be either mud or feces. It’s not a pretty sight. A light-skinned man clad in a white button-up and a trilby is just out of sight of the group, watching with a look one could only describe as a mix of intrigue and disappointment.
This man is named Murphy, and he was assigned to a case at this very facility. Several murders happened here, and he needs to get to the bottom of how they happened, who killed them, but most importantly why. He puts a hand to his .44 magnum pistol, holstered on his right hip, and contemplates stepping onto the scene armed.
After a moment of reconsideration, he decides to take a more peaceful approach. In his eyes, these folks seem more scared than dangerous. He wasn’t about to increase the body count here without a good reason… but he kept his magn... keep reading on reddit ➡

She likes to watch tv all day, and I mean all day, she will sit in the basement, which is also my theatre room, and watch tv from when she wakes up until she goes to bed. She does not help much with the chores around the house and does not help with the kids unless I or my wife make a big deal about it. She will also flat out miss things, for example if I am running out and ask her to watch the oven while I’m gone, she will say yes and I will come home to a burnt dinner...when asked why I get excuses.

My mother in law (40s) is about to go into hospital for some time and I have a little used Switch that I can give her to keep her occupied. I just don't have any games I think she'd like.
She plays a lot of mobile/arcade games like Bubble Blaster, Candy Crush, Tap city builders and Gardenscapes but I know that she regularly exhausts her daily lives/attempt limit before micro transactions. I'd hate to think of her wanting to play/keep occupied without spending on digital currency.
Any recommendations that would suit her profile? She has never played on console before and I have a limited amount of time to show her the ropes before she is admitted so I'm not looking for anything overly complex, preferably not narrative based. I can't see her playing a platformer and I feel like she would love something like AC or stardew but I'm just worried she'll be intimidated by the freedom.

Since all the current global mess already had started, I was lucky to get my husband to be with me. But no other visitors were allowed. Of course, our families were sad. My family called a lot and asked how we are doing. Husband's family didn't really call that much. Only his brother. Me and husband were sending pics and videos of our little girl to both of our families. His mom wrote one day when we didn't send pics and asked for them. No asking about how we are doing, just wanted to see pics. Recently we came home, and the next day we invited husband's brother to come visit since he has been very nice and helpful.

However last month when it came to paying the initial catering deposit she sent the money to the wrong account (she made a mistake when writing it out and put a 5 instead of a 2 in the account number) this one digit mistake sent £1,800 to a lucky recipient.
She thought nothing of it for a few days assuming it had gone to my account. Then after a few days when we both realised the mistake she immediately phoned the bank to have the situation looked at. The bank said they would need 20 days to investigate.
20 days later my mother in law has received a phone call from the bank stating they have unsuccessfully tried to recover the money owing to "the recipient not having enough funds in their account to cover the whole amount" basically they have spent our money or moved it without or consent.

So I've been with my wife for 10 years since we were both 15. She's never done her laundry in a timely manner. She has A LOT of clothes so she rarely needs to do laundry (I'm fully convinced if she didn't need to wash her camys [or however that white shirt women wear is spelled] she'd be good for 6+ months EASY) and thus, doesn't wash it or when she lived at home, her mom did it.
It piles up in her closet at our house and in the corner outside the closet. This bothered me since we started living together, about 5 years ago in college.
