I do have a great mother in law...she is as real as it gets, but she does not butt in at all!


Your mother-in-law is an angel.


Consider yourself lucky. Many brides would give up their left arm to have a mother-in-law like yours. You may suffer through the occasional negative comment, but your lack of mother-in-law drama is the envy of all. If your mother-in-law starts babysitting the kids while you and your hubby go on a romantic weekend getaway, don't tell your girlfriends. They may slap you in the face.

Have you ever tried to sleep, but can't because a mosquito keeps buzzing around your ears? You keep swatting at it, but you can't kill it. You get up, turn on the lights, and start whacking at it with your pillow. Soon, you're sweating and your room is a mess and there's no way you're getting any sleep. Your mother-in-law is that mosquito. Soon, you'll learn to sleep with the buzzing.

So accurate it is scary.



Your mother-in-law is a banshee from the underworld.


You poor woman. Your life is a living hell that won't end as long as your mother-in-law is in your life. You've considered telling your mother-in-law that you've moved to a different country that has banned mother-in-laws. You've considered telling your mother-in-law that she shouldn't visit because you've contracted a deadly virus that has a particular affinity for mother-in-laws. You've considered telling your mother-in-law that you dislike the sight of her face and you would prefer if she didn't talk or speak to you. Ok, that last one was a bit mean, but at least it wasn't a lie. Stay strong and remember that adversity builds character.

What I got (for my first mother-in-law) is below. And she was! I stayed close to her even after that marriage ended. She eventually got Alzheimer's, and died the summer before I remarried. I always considered her one of the best parts of my first marriage, and the program for my second wedding included a memorial to her.


Just remember, when you are judging your mother-in-law, you will likely be a mother-in-law someday.  So take note of what she does right, and resolve not to do what she does wrong.  Being a mother-in-law does not all by itself make you evil!

My mother in law is a mosquito I can't kill. So I will just ignore her till I can figure out away to drown out her noise!!!! I was told when there is a will there is a way.

Your Mother-in-Law is the Hound of Baskerville:


Your mother-in-law is a hairy beast with huge fangs and venomous drool. The only way to distract her is to throw a bacon strip and run the other way. Don't let her near small children, as they will surely perish at her razor sharp tongue and beastly claws. Stay strong and remember that dogs live shorter than humans.
