Do you complain about your ILs to your own family?

I tell my mom everything! She's apalled by MIL but I also know that my mom is tactful so if they see each other again (I think they've only seen each other maybe 5 times since we got married and that was because we lived near one set of parents or the other) I know that she will be nice and wouldn't say anything rude to her

Not usually. I'm not too crazy about my mother either - she is one of those women who is desperately clinging to youth (we're talking full out Botox, boob job, eyelid surgeries, anorexic build, fake tan, capped teeth, divorced, younger boyfriend, etc. etc.) so anything at all about one of her peers that might potentially make her look better ends up being a hassle for me. If my mother found out about the weird things my MIL did, she'd want to talk about it and tell me how she's so much better than that... which would be just as annoying.

And, my sisters are all still young (the youngest is in high school, the other two are early 20s) and living at home, so they don't have much of a frame of reference for weird IL behaviour.

My dad is actually quite close to my ILs and gets on with them all really well, so I don't want to put him in an awkward position by telling him stuff. If they get on, great, I'm not going to try to change their relationship.

every second of my life

Umm.. my mom is a much much much more unbiased version of me. She can look at any situation without automatically agreeing with me/whoever she gets along with. She likes to see things from both sides. I pretty much run everything by her.. she thinks they're nuts, too. She especially doesn't like my mil. My mom is one of my best friends, I talk to her on a daily basis. If I could end up one HALF the woman she is in strength and wisdom, I'd die a happy girl.

omg yes! I call my mom and tell her everything...my mom is pretty upfront and if this woman decides to get lippy with her she's gonna put her in her place ASAP. My family is back in MI so I have to deal with these ppl by myself, with none of my friends or family around, it sucks!
I don't want that woman in my room when I deliver and trust me, she ain't gonna be...Imma tell the doctors, nurses, hell I'll even inform the janitors to keep that woman away from me!
My mom tells me to ignore ppl...but I can only ignore ppl for so long, esp being pregnant...eventually Imma say some things ppl ain't gonna wanna hear...and thaz just too bad cuz I'm really polite and don't say much....and if u push me that far...then trust me hunny it ain't me that has the problem...
