Monster in Law


(California)

My mother in law has been a thorn in my side ever since I married her son five years ago...she has threatened suicide, caused scenes at our home, complains he spends too much time with me and not enough with her (we both work full time) she only works two days a week.


When too much time goes by and we don't see her or talk to her she leaves messages that say "this is not good for me or my health you can't do this to me, I'm your mother and your going to cause me to have a stroke" and a week ago she did!!

We had not talked to her for two months prior due to her emotional outbursts. Now my husband is in full blown mommy mode and now she has become the best mom of all time to him and he expects me to just let everything go!

I am so angry!

She has won and now we have to care for her for God only knows how long she never remarried and has an only child...there's no help, just me and him...how is my marriage going to handle this?

How am I going to handle this? I can't stand this woman!
