My former MIL was a nutjob. I generally avoided conflict w/her, but I didn't care to be in her presence if I didn't have to be.
Oh come on. You know you weren't good enough for her little prince. Admit it. :D

She's pretty open minded, so when we disagree, she'll look into my point of view to see where I'm coming from.
She expects to have her input, but doesn't mind when we don't follow it.

It's like she thinks we're adults or something. Weird.

My father in law is a great guy. I found out though over the last month or so I am not so well liked by my wife's mother. Many words have been spoken with out mine or my wife's knowledge.

Ah... that kind of sucks, are you sure it's in context? If you are getting it second hand maybe it's not as bad as you think? Just trying to sugar-coat it for you.

Of course it is second hand but it is difficult to sugar coat some of the things she said. Kinda like a chocolate covered turd......

Don't get me wrong, she pushes quite a bit, and once in a while can get a little MILy.
I've learned over the years that she can be quieted with a bigger than usual glass of wine, or a stronger pomegranate martini.

That being said, if she really gets on her horse, or if she pushes too hard or too long, we make sure her grandchildren are busy when she's free.

Those cases are rare, and far between, though.

Oh, and I scored points with her early. When her daughter and I were dating, her sons friends (and son) and I were at a party, and they were talking about how much of a MILF she was -before the term was invented- and the son told her how I defended her honor.

And then there was the time we were on a road trip in Cali, and stopped a truckstop convenience store - she and I went into the store, and a trucker asked me if she was my girlfriend. I said 'no, she's my MIL'. He said - 'lucky man'. I said 'Damn straight'. I think that's what got me the most points, ever.

Oh, I also rescued their idiot dog who jumped onto the pool cover chasing a butterfly. And sank, wrapping the cover around him.
