Let's discuss why we're all here- OUR INLAWS!!
First give a little background on yourself: Name, Kids, whatever is relevant
Now your Inlaws: What are they like? What have they done?
Let's get to know each other
Hi everyone! My name is Meegan, married to DH for a little over a year now, and our son Christian was born in April. My inlaws are complete NUT JOBS!! I didn't realize how controlling and manipulative my MIL was until our engagement, when she took over and planned my wedding details without my consent. Then she compared every inch of her pregnancies to my pregnancy for the ENTIRE time I was pregnant, now of course she tells me I do things wrong and she tells me HER stories of when her sons were babies. The woman used to let them chew and suck on a piece of raw meat when they were teething, ok? FREAK! Now she is trying to plan my son's baptism, and take over THAT party. I swear, she will be the death of my marriage...
Brandon and I aren't married yet, but we're engaged.. and his parents are completely insane. His father remarried a lady with two children from a previous marriage and from what I hear, has completely changed since marrying her. Either way - they're both incredibly off in the head. They both claim to be very religious and god-fearing, but badmouth me (Brandon and I are young.. because I had my daughter young, I'm automatically a #####) and tell Brandon that they 'pray that he'll accept my evil, non-believing ways'. They've tried having his car taken away when we first got together to make seeing me difficult, they've tried to have his phone taken away so that we cannot talk when we're not together, etcetc. I could go on and on, but to sum it up - his father is a verbally abusive hypocrite that was arrested for assualting the stepmother's two kids (and he badmouths ME ), and his stepmother is a jealous, possesive evil person.
I'll Go Too
My name is Michelle, I am 20. My DBF (boyfriend) is 24, and our DS is 14 months.
We live in New Mexico, USA. We are all full-blooded Native American Indian. I am currently a SAHM while DBF pursues his degree in Pharmacy.
DS is my parents' first grandbaby, and my Inlaws' 3rd great grandchild.
MY INLAWS: Live in MT, where DBF is originally from. They blame everything from the weather to losing at the casino on THE WHITE MAN. FIL and MeanAunt and her family are the worst ones. They spend all their time figuring out ways to scam money instead of just getting a JOB. All of their past jobs only lasted a week at the most.
MIL and NiceAunt and her family are all okay- Nice Aunt is a nurse in the next town over and takes good care of her 3 kids with her DH.
The other problem is SIL, who is a meth addict and (LONG STORY) got her kids taken away for running a meth house and having them live in the upstairs bedroom. She's an abusive, selfish, lying brat. She abandoned her older son when he was a baby, and DBF raised him until he was 2. Her younger son has multiple problems from her using meth while pregnant. I also suspect that she is in love with my DBF, but thats another LONG story.
All in all, they think I trapped their grandson, and call me and my son "white" because I didn't grow up on a rez. Forget that my tribe doesn't HAVE a rez...so how could I grow up on one... *sigh*
Well, that's long enough- I'm sure you'll hear the whole story eventually!
Let's discuss why we're all here- OUR INLAWS!!
First give a little background on yourself: Lauren married to Clint, no babies yet,
Now your Inlaws: posted earlier, love my inlaws, seem to be in the minority on that one. we live pretty far away but before we even got engaged i sat them down and drilled them on what they expect, dont expect on boundaries for our marriage, kids and the like. i wasn't going to marry him if the answers were bad! we just took a trip to chicago with them and my mom. our moms talk alot too, email each other. i made sure they were people i could live with and i got more

I'm Sarah, I'm 29, DH is Will and he's 30. Expecting our first in October.
ILs . . . well, they blame him for his last marriage ending. Because clearly, the fact that she's been cheating on him since they started dating is all his fault. And it's his fault she's a **** and had an orgy with their son in the house while he was in IRAQ for heaven's sake. But they loooooooooooooove her! They think she's just GREAT and she fits into the family perfectly. I never got a chance. Secretly, I'm relieved b/c I don't want to have to deal w/ them AT ALL. But he is horrible @ standing up to them. *sigh*
I'll rant more soon - evidently we're going to visit them again (a week from tomorrow - I haven't seen them in months, so sad the streak has to end) and I'm debating staying in the car or standing sullenly in the doorway - he's told me I'm not allowed to do either. But I may just freak out on them . . .
Hi my name is Christy I am married to a Navy man who had been deployed in iraq since Jan. i am almost 28 and DH is almost 32. We have to wonderful girls Tori 6 yrs old, Rebekah 6 months old.
my IL's well as you can read in my other post my MIL is a B*tch and she is very controlling. She seems to think that DH and her have a better closer relationship than he thinks, he said he never realized hwo she was until I came along. i am to blame for everything, nothing I do or say is right. She thinks she can treat me like crap and I have put up with it for way too long. I think now the big problem is I have finally start to stand up for myself and not jsut keep quite. DH has been great with dealing with her and has known there have been problems, but it really has just gotten so out of control since having the baby. She is crazy, really really crazy!
You know I am so glad there is finally a place to come and vent about her!!!! LOL
