Now what transpired between you and your MIL that there's such a rift?

Was talkign to a guy today who said his inlaws may be moving down the road from him...they feel their daughter married "down." He's not happy.

.jus interested...inquiring minds...

ok, I'll play...

AFter my now wife agreed to take an "E ticket" ride and marry me, I went to her dad and politely told him what we had done.

He shared that he was concerned that he didn't know me very well. We got married about 5 mos. later.

I think they were eyeing me for the first 8+ years (that's a long probationary period)...I was such a goof, I guess. Too optomistic, too insecure, too forgetful, too inexperienced... well, now, some 13 years later, I think things have evened out.

Now, my dad...he's in Minn, and I'll never please him. Oh well. I'll always be the "black sheep."

Ok, who do I pay my $90 for counseling, now? :=)

Your friend married "down" and they are going to move "down" the road from him. What does that make them?

Oh boy, why do they want to move so close to them? I can tell you this, I would move closer to MY parents before I moved close to Ians dad. When his mom was alive, SURE, I would have moved closer to them, but not now. His dad wants to control the world, and the closer you are to him, the more he tries to control YOU!

Bingo! Lots of folks wonder why I live here when I want to live in Texas, Dad (I love him anyway) has to be in control. He still thinks I am 16 and under his roof. My twin brother lives way out in west Texas for the same reason. and I thought I was the only one with a dis-functional family.

My 34 year old daughter, of whom I am extremely proud, just took care of her mother in law at her (my daughter's) home for the past 2 years so that she could die there rather than a hospital or nursing home. She passed away in February.
My wife is anxious to do the same for my mother except that we may be moving to Mom's home so that Mom can stay home with her cats and all her familiar surroundings and be happy rather than be in a warehouse for old people somewhere.
I guess some people just don't do a real good job picking their in-laws.
