Were the ILs different before marriage or even before kids? Or have they always been the same since you've known them?

I was just talking to a friend who got along wonderfully with her MIL until her daughter was born. Things changed completely.

My ILs have always been the same. MIL just irritates me more when she tries to horn in on my kids and act like she's the mom.

Yes they were different...but especially MIL was completely different. She changed somewhat once we got married but then completely showed her "true" self once we told her I was pregnant. Then when we let her know up front how things were going to be (basically that she was going to be grandma and not allowed to play mom all the time like w/other grandkids) she was like Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde....she's gotten a little better but she's still a witch...and she always will be....no changing this late in life!

FIL is the same. MIL is still psycho but just in a different way. She used to be a really strong woman who was out and about but her pill addiction has taken it's toll and now she thrives on the attention she gets from her health problems and totally plays the victim role.
