That is my case, my MIL has 4 boys (well 3, one passed away a few years ago), but has always wanted a girl. I think this is why she got so crazy around the wedding planning time. It's no secret that the bride and her mother get to do all the fun planning stuff, but that is how it is SUPPOSED to be!! And my mom said that she would not let MIL take that away from her, after all I was HER only daughter! So I was wondering if any of you have that similar situation, maybe it is why they are so crazy. I notice it is always the DH's parents, hardly ever the girls parents. Oh I PRAY I am not one of those MIL one day to my son's future wife!

My DH has one sister. But my MIL did try to overtake our wedding plans so that is why we eloped.

With my ex-MIL, she had a daughter who was only 4 when my ex & I got married but since she was not older, she tried to control our entire lives.
Thank you KimberlyD0 for my absolutely beautiful siggy!

My mil has 3 boys and no girls. She keeps telling me that I am like her daughter. What she needs to realize is that I have a mom and am not really looking for another.

My mother in law has 4 boys also she always wanted a girl though…
But yeh.. She has my daughter.. She doesn’t get to see her as much as I would like though...
She isn’t really controlling… she advises but that’s about it…
its sad though that she never had a girl.

My DH is one of 4 boys. Unfortunately, he is one of the 2 that are momma's boys. The oldest and youngest are very independent. His other brother still lives at home, in the basement with his wife and 3 kids, and my DH runs to momma any time he wants anything.

My situation is the same where I am my mothers only daughter and my MIL only has sons (2 of them). It was always nice though because she isn't very girly so she was happy to be involved in the wedding but not pushy about it at all. She was very welcoming to me because I was like the daughter she never had. It isn't all perfect though, because she is like a guy she usually acts un-emotional like a guy. Her motto is "not my problem." Nice!

MIL has two boys. I married the oldest one. The younger one is a stupid redneck who spends all his money on his Camaro and still lives at home. Probably no intentions of moving out. My mom had two girls. I'm the oldest one. My sister has a nasty attitude and always runs around saying, "I'm never getting married... F that!!!"

So, my mom probably only had my wedding to help plan. I would not have let MIL destroy that. MIL and her sister tried telling us what we could and couldn't do for OUR wedding. I was just like, "are you serious? Get a life.."

It's just pathetic how controlling some people can be. I feel bad for them.

Yes, my MIL has 3 boys no girls! She wasn't too bad about the wedding but she would make these useless stupid suggestions (she still does that) and I just say "Nope!" or have DH nicely tell her that's not what we were/are going to do. Then she almost ruined it by bein almost late, we had to rearrange the pics because she was late and rush through their family's, and she wasn't there to practice lighting the candles for the unity candle with my mom. It was so annoying.
