Re: Your inlaws
I have a MIL and SIL, and I used to hate MIL. We got along GREAT until H and I got engaged, and then she did a 180-degree, and started treating me like garbage. It took a couple years, and a few breakdown on my part to H, the last breakdown being pretty big. I think he must've said something to her at that point about being nicer to me. I now get along with her OK. I wouldn't invite her out to lunch with just the 2 of us, but now when I see her number on caller ID, I can answer it and talk to her for awhile. SIL is very mentally ill, doesn't work and doesn't have a car, so we don't see her often. We are on decent terms, but because she's so sick and isn't able to get together due to that and her size, we don't have a close relationship. She also tends to brag about her mental illnesses and her rapes, which I can't really relate to, and don't understand why a person would brag about things like that. So yeah, that's that!
