Do you get along well with your mother-in-law?

Do you and your mother-in-law argue all the time? Do you like her?

Answers:
I love my Mother-in-law, She is really nice and a lovely person. I'm lucky :)!
I get along really well with my mother in law. I don't see her like everyday, which might help, but I see her about once a week. We have never argued. She is a very sweet individual.
i get on really well with my mum in law too, she is brilliant, i live quite a distance from my own parents so she is a good substitute!!
I get along just fine with my mother in law. Untill she opens her mouth that is.
I don't particularly like my mother-in-law but I am still nice and respectful to her. You just have to deal with it.
well she is not my mother in law yet but my fiances' mother and I DO NOT get along. We dont really argue because we really just dont talk. She usually likes to talk about me and put me down when I am not around so I just make sure to lay it on extra thick when I am around her!
My wife and mother-in-law get along great. Actually my mother told my wife in front of me that she could come and stay with her whenever she wanted, i said thanks mom, and she looks at me and says i wasnt talking about you. Well thats a fine howdoyoudo.
used to til she kept telling me how to raise my child (3rd) and my other 2 are just fine
but i still stay civil towards her
I DONT GET ALONG WELL WITH MINE BECAUSE IS TWO FACE LIAR. SHE WOULD TALK TO NE AND MY SISTER IN LAW ABOUT EACH OTHER. SHE NEVER SEE'S MY KIDS BUT SHE WOULD RUN FROM HELL IN BACK TO SEE MY NEPHEW SHE ACTS AS IF SHE ONLY HAS 2 GRAND KIDS WHEN SHE REALLY HAS 4.

AS FAR AS I GO SHE IS DEAD TO ME.
Not at all. My m-i-l and I can't stand each other. She won't speak to me when we do run into each other. She even started a family feud over me. She won't speak to any family member that talks to me. Heck, she even tried to get the church to tell my husband not to marry me. All because I do things my own way, and don't let her tell me how to live my life. She claims I don't show proper respect to my elders. I say you have to earn respect.
Yep, Havent seen or talked to her in years
My mother-in-law is like a second mother to me. She's great and has never intruded on our lives or tried to give me her two cents!
i do not get along with her at all - i dont want to say anymore on the subject
I get on really well with my mother in law, in fact we live and work together.
I really like her, she has looked after me ever since me and her son started dating, the best thing was when we first met we found that we had some common ground and it all went from they.
Some times it is best to reassure your mother in law that you are no threat to her family, in fact you are adding to it, but always respect her as she and her partner can be the back bone of your partners life perspective.
Well depends on which one we're talking about. I got two.

I get along with one of them, and not at all with the other...and would rather, stay away from both.
I talk to my mother-in-law everyday almost. We are very close. I've commented on this to her, and she's always felt that it makes no sense to be nasty. She has 9 children (5 her own, and 4 she adopted), and she doesn't like some of her daughter/son in-laws, but is pleasant. However, if she doesn't agree with something, she will tell you. But, she is awesome and such a caring woman. I'm lucky to have her!

I almost married a man whose mom was horrible. Nothing made her happy, she made rude comments and spoke about me, in front of me, as if I wasn't there. I had had enough and told him I couldn't be part of a family like that. I cared a lot about him, but he never stuck up for me and it caused more problems than it was worth.
I used to think fondly of my mother in law. I thought of her like a 2nd mom until she told me to my face that I "deserved it" when my husband hit me in front of her 2 years ago. I lost all love and respect for her because she can't let go of her son and now that my husband and I are divorcing, she can have him to all her pathetic, pitiful, souless self. No I don't like her and I avoid her as much as I can. She's lived with us for 8 years and my marriage is ending partly because of her.
