Welcome aboard Robot! What brought you here? Well, besides the obvious blanket reason of IL problems?

Age: 29

Years with Significant Other: 5 years

Number of Children: We don't have any, and we don't really want any.

Most Hated IL: FIL, SMIL, pretty much all of FIL's family.. MIL is extremely annoying but the rest of her family have always been wonderful to me.

Worst Gift Received from IL: My birthday has never been acknowledged at all. At Christmas my MIL will get me a one dollar gift from the Dollar Tree and everyone else gets 50-100 dollar presents. One time she did surprise me in the middle of the year with a set of bathroom scales so I "wouldn't put on any more weight". :roll:

Biggest il issue is by far the MIL, enabled by FIL who also enables GBIL
Worst gift... with strings attached

Age: 29
Years with Significant Other: friends two years, dating two years, married one year
Number of Children: none of the human variety, one dog, one horse (with another due to arrive in August)
Most Disliked IL: FIL, but both he and MIL have issues and tend to feed off each other so I hold them equally responsible
Worst Gift Received from IL: They've actually done ok in the gift department. The cheesiest would probably be the horse calendar for Christmas, 'cause y'know, since we have a horse we MUST want a horse calendar.

My heart weeps !! So much pain behind that name - I hope you find something here, through the people on this site that can help how you feel - it sure has helped me to feel I have somewhere to turn and I am so very grateful to the anonymous posters for their honesty and openness.

Age: Well seasoned, old and tired
Years Married: 31 years
Number of children: 2 adult daughters, two grandchildren
Most Disliked: I have no problem with the word HATE, obviously, LOL...MIL, hands down!
Worst Gift: From MIL, a sandwich she had bought at a deli, kept in her car and brought it to me when I was pregnant (she didn't tell me it sat out for hours). I wound up in the ER with a severe case of food poisoning. They had to monitor the baby and me for 48 hours. Never ate anything she brought over again...right to the trash. Eating at her house? I pushed stuff around the plate for years.

Age: 51
Years Married: 15 years: 1 daughter, I also have two children from a previous marriage
Most Disliked: MIL, hands down! SIL is a close second
Worst Gift: Birthday not being acknowledged at all. Also she buys all the gifts that are given to us from BIL and SIL (they are both in the 30s and have their own familes as well) - she and us are the only ones that dish out money at Xmas. Tired of that for sure! :?

Age: almost 30
years married: 5 in September
Kids: 2 cats, and my hubby has an 11 year old. I don't think I want any of my own.
Most hated: AIL who thinks she is my hubbys mom
worst gift: a dishwasher that was promised as a wedding gift by MIL and AIL. They even got BIL to give them money for said dishwasher. Told us it was ordered, and to watch for the ups man any day. .. 5 years later, no dishwasher. No other wedding gift, no contribution to the wedding.
