Just wondering if there is anything you ladies have tried, whether it worked or not, to defuse the IL problems?

I have tried killing them with kindness but it doesn't work. I just keep doing it though.

I just sent my nightmare of an SIL a Mother's Day Card. Just because.

I just try to be as nice as I can. I only complain to my DH about them when absolutely necessary. I tell my mom about it because I know she'll be tactful if they cross paths. The best thing that every happened was them moving far, far away so I only have to deal with them every 3 months or so. I can usually manage to be nice for a week.

I have pretty much come to the opinion that you (the DIL) either LOVE your IL's or HATE them (or they hate you). That is so sad. I told dh yesterday, I think I have a fair solution. BIL and SIL can have MIL and we can have FIL (he is AWESOME!) hahah

LOL I actually really like my FIL too. In fact, I like most of my ILs. The only ones I get annoyed with are MIL, one of my BILs can be a jerk occasionally, DH's has a couple cousins that get under my skin, and my SIL (my brother's wife).
