Was there a tipping point in your relationship with your inlaws?

Were you skeptical and then they did something and you suddenly knew that you were truly family?

Or the other way around.

Was there an instance that the lines got drawn in the sand and you knew it meant you had "those" inlaws?

My tipping point was when MIL accused me of trying to break up her marriage off a totally bogus situation. My husband and I fought about it a lot after that, but his tipping point for them was that she "friended" his exwife on facebook. She doted on this woman who had done terrible things to my husband after standing on her cross and saying that she treats me so badly because I'm terrible to her son. What his ex did to him should have legally thrown her in jail, but I'm terrible to him? DH was deployed at the time and asked his mother to un-friend his ex (he's asked her several times over the years not to talk to that woman). She refused. She deleted her FB account sot hat she didn't hurt the ex's feelings. Chris decided then and there if she would rather sever her only communication with him while he's in a war zone than hurt his ex wife's feelings... well we can say that DH and I don't fight about the inlaws anymore.

It was the other way around forvme. Yeah they were weird and very controlling like, but initially they were ok. I think the tipping point was when my sister in law popped back on the scene. She had been out the picture for awhile because of drug abuse. They defend. Her constantly and treat her like the golden child and get got real bad after I had kids. I treat them usually on a need to know basis.
