I only had one MIL. We got along fine until I let it be known that she was not going to be raising my son. That was my job. She thought that since she did such a lousy job with raising my husband, she was going to have a second chance to do it right. WRONG! She turned against me and refused to talk to me.

Thank you for asking. He is annoyed that life hasn't returned to normal. I'm not supposed to cuddle or be close to him for more than 30 minutes at a time and he is used to sitting close next to me lots and sleeping with me. Poor boy. He's still extra hungry (it will take a while for his thyroid to act normally again). He has also figured out that I want him to eat, so he is pulling the extra fussy number.

I'm watching Antiques Roadshow and using the Red Button feature to "play along" to guess the value of the items - great fun!

First two correct! It can only go downhill from here...

I got lucky with mothers-in-law. Luckier than my husbands.

I never divorced my first M-I-L, I kept her when I divorced her son.

I outlived two husbands. That was my share. Did not care to try for victim #3. Didn't even want to date. I just concentrated all my energy on working and raising my youngest child.

29 years in December, it'll be 33 years together for the Ogre and me. He just said, "Seems longer, huh?" Come on, I'm not THAT stupid I had to ask him, I don't even remember what year we got married half the time. He says it was 1984. I was 23 and he was 39.

My second MIL said she would keep me and get rid of her son if we divorced. She always wanted a daughter, ended up with three boys.
