Are you closer to your MIL than your own Mom?

How long did it take you to call her Mom after you got married?

Are you ****ing me? Calling that woman "mom" would be like driving over to the cemetary and taking a dump on my own mothers grave. I would never call that person mom. She's less friendly to me than the guy who flipped me off in the rush hour traffic this morning.

Not a chance. She's not my favourite person.

And I have one Mom that I call Mom - MY Mom. My MIL gets called by her first name. Both my SIL's call her Mom, but I will not.

My Mom and my MIL couldn't be more different, my Mom was the picture perfect Mom and MIL should never have been a Mom! DH and I have been married for almost 8 yrs now and I will never call that woman mom, DH doesn't even call her that, he calls her by her first name.

How long did it take you to call her Mom after you got married? MIL actually asked me to call her mom after we got married. I was naive and did. For the last few years, I do not call her anything at all.

I'm SO much closer to my mom! DH's mom isn't horrible, but we would never be that close. I don't call her mom, either. I would feel to funny calling her that.

I'm way closer to my own mom and wouldn't call MIL "mom" for anything in the world.

I would never call another woman mom, I only have one. When it comes to MIL, I don't even call her by her first name cause I can't stand woman. She's a horrible user of people, and her own kids come second to her cats. WONDERFUL woman I tell you.

I have an incredible mom and we are really really close.

I haven't and won't even if h*&& freezes over and they host the next Winter Olympics there.

I am WAYYYY closer to my mom!

My relationship with the mil is almost nonexistent and I will NEVER call her "mom".
BTW I've been married to DH for 3 years now.

Are you closer to your MIL than your own Mom? YES!!! I love my MIL! She's the best! Me and my "real" mom don't talk. My mother always had something bad to say about my DH. I was getting tired of it. She didn't come to the wedding. Hasn't been apart of my daughter's life. She met her once and that was an accident. SO basically my "mother" can screw herself. My MIL has been there for us and will always be there for us!

How long did it take you to call her Mom after you got married? I believe I started calling her mom before we got married. Took me a few months to call my FIL dad though. But I think that's because my dad and I are close. That and my DH and FIL have the same name and I was getting tired of saying my Seth or your Seth. LOL!!

Not at all, and I would never in a million years call her mom. You couldn't pay me enough money to call her that. She gets called by her first name and that's it.
