Eh yah I really feel for you. But try and be careful with them sha and make sure you pray always. Thank God you live in the UK and not in Nigeria they would have done more than that. As for me, I dont have problem with my inlaws esp his mother because God and my husband are in control. My husband doesnt tolerate any nonsense from his family at all. May God be with you and your family. Take care.

interesting topic for me. my in-law and i coast along. i don't know if they like me but i am not fond of them i try not to let it show. my husband is the nicest man ever so i don't know why his family are different. my mother-in-law and her daughter and grand daughter spent a month long holiday with us (we live in uk they live in 9ja) they did not think it proper to buy my son even sweets as thank you all thru their stay tho i bought stuff for the gran daughter. my mother-in-law has never ever called us to say hello to us- she cannot use her credit not even when i had my son did she ever call me to say hello, how is baby or even to tell us what she would like to name the baby etc. she is a rich woman so it is not credit issues, she is just stingy. when they were on holiday with us they will buy chinese for themselves but not me or my son. my husband works away from home. i knew it was intentional when one day they bought for 4 people but the 4th person was a friend of theirs that came to visit later. and yes i was slaving away everyday cooking for them in the kitchen and working and taking the son to nursery. not that i cant afford chinese but my parents would never do a thing like that. i spent 500pds on food shopping alone for them when they visited. and the daughter who is younger than i am never tried to help with anything. mommy wants to eat pounded yam or the bread is finished remember to buy more. i always felt like gving her a good spanking but i always told myself the month will be up before i know it. now my brother-in-law has moved to the uk. he is working and has been working for 1 year now, he has never bought a thing in the house and does not help with any house work except leave lather in the bath when he's done which annoys me. he cooks for himself and never eats what we cook in the house but he uses foodstuff that i buy. my son had a birthday but he did not think to buy even a 1pd toy for him or anything for xmas. when he was not working, i used to give him small change oh. and the only time their mom almost called was when he was stuck somewhere and couldnt get home. the woman sent me a text message from 9ja to go and get him! i am praying for grace as i don't even know how long he will be with us for but i have had enough of them. i cant tell my husband as they are king in his eyes and i try not to tell my family either because my mom will just hate them for life. i feel better letting it out here though.

I wish my husbands parents were still living. I would have loved to meet his mother as he is truly a momma boy, not in the bad way.

My EXMIL and EXFIL are the worse ever. My Ex father in law cheated on his wife for many many years which gave her lots of free time. My ex MIL was dealing with the guilt of sending 3 of her children away to be raised by other family members and was/is unhealthily (is that a word) attached to my Exhusband. My ExMIL could not bleeping mind her own dam business to save her bleeping life. It was really bad between us until i threaten to take her son and grandchildren away if she did not respect me.

She backed down and we lived out our remainder years in mutual respect. We each dislike the other but respected each other. Now after the divorce all gloves are off and I let her have it anytime necessary.
