My mother in law is a princess through and through, always been provided for by her husband, and doesn't work. My husband and father in law cater to her so her &quot;reality bubble&quot; doesn't pop. She's a spoiled brat, I've seen little kids behave better than her if she doesn't get her way. I particularly find it annoying when she tries to sympathize with me, we have nothing in common. I've worked hard for everything I have, and I've had a <i class="fa fa-asterisk filtered"></i><i class="fa fa-asterisk filtered"></i><i class="fa fa-asterisk filtered"></i><i class="fa fa-asterisk filtered"></i> life doing it. My Husband, dog, family, education, and the small amount of stuff that I have in our apartment is all I really have to show for it, and even then I've had to work an ungodly amount for it.
I've had to fight for years for my relationship, engagement, marriage. I've particularly had to fight her for my husband. She can't let him go, she calls him daily. It got to a point where I left my husband till he realized what his relationship with her was doing to our relationship. Needless to say the only one who really looks after me, is me, because I end up looking after him too. It came to the point where I told him that it honestly felt like an affair; that I was his wife, and that his mum was the &quot;Other women&quot;, and that I worked all the time and paid bills, and was less than a second thought. We went out on a date and she was calling, we stayed in and watched a movie, and she was calling, we went out for dinner and she was calling, it was my bday, she had a hissy fit and he went to visit her, forgot my bday. I guess it changed his perspective pretty fast when I told him, said I deserved better, and that I was going to call off the wedding and left. He worked very hard to win me back, and he works very hard to stay in my good graces, keeping his mother at bay. We're married now, he makes me feel like I'm top priority.
I sometimes wonder about his mum though, and what warped her so bad. I mean for a women in her mid fifties to never grow up?
I'm less than half her age and I have more responsibility now than she's had in a life time. I just fret that something will happen to his dad. She'll never be able to live on her own, she's doesn't worked, and she can't support her current living style.


Sounds exactly like my mother in law.
I feel like his mother is the other woman too!
Hope he realises what a burden his mother is being on you and your marriage. Seriously like cut the cord you're a grown male..

Woah seems like i should step up and plan on moving, who knows if he would open his eyes but anything is better than being put through that.
