    • I will try to solve it with her first before I bring in my husband.  For sure he will be in the middle.  If that still does not work, I will try to consult my best friends to make sure I am not reasonable.  Then I will bring to my husband very tactfully.  It is a tough situation.

      Handle with Care! Fragile!

    • I would tell my husband that it’s difficult, but that I can be a trooper and hang in there.  

       Then, in the middle of the night, I would wake up and kick him, and explain it was MIL nightmares, and they probably wouldnt stop until we moved out.

    • I could deal with it, but I would hope that I would never have to live with anyone that I didn’t get along with.

    • Yikes! That would be a stressful situation since you said that you can’t stand her.
      If I knew that we didn’t get along in the first place I would insist that we not not live in the same house. However, if it wasn’t evident until we lived under on roof I would talk about the issues with my husband. Life is much too short to be unhappy.

    • In a nutshell I will not bore you with the details but my former mother in law had nowhere to live so she lived in an apartment I owned which is directly under my apartment – the reason I say former is her influence over my husband directly contributed to our breakup – she drove me mad and yes I did say something as it got to the stage her or me and he picked her ..........yes I tried every other method and yes I did try to bite my tongue – yes I did hold back – but you know what it just made me more of a sucker – more of a doormat.

      Two years on am I sorry it ended this way NO ...........
      Oh, she now lives elsewhere and karma has returned to my life ......

    • I dearly love my mother-in-law, but I too would rather live under a bridge than live with her!  

      I would explain to my husband (not nag and bitch and gripe) that I’m not happy and that things need to change soon, and leave it at that.  Putting a man in the middle of two feuding women is never a good thing.

    • I love my mother-in-law, too.  I also love that we live 3,000 miles apart.
      We get along fine the couple times a year we see each other but my husband & I are pretty much on the same page about who, what, and how she is....neither one of us could stand living with or too close to his folks.

    • made it VERY clear that under NO circumstance would that woman live with us EVER.

      in fact-hubby’s sister said the same-and it’s her mother!

      we have all been paying extra to 1) have her stay where she is 2) should (and believe me she should be in a home)the need arise, we’ve been paying on a policy to provide her with one.

      NO WAY

    • Tell your husband that you‘re miserable!  Even if you‘re not in a position to DO anything about it, at least you can vent & let him know how you feel.  (Be sure you let him know you are only VENTING if you don’t want him to take any action.)  Make sure you end it with an “I love you & thank for understanding/listening.”  

      Tell the truth - it will set you FREEEE!
