    i cannot believe she has the nerve to say that about your mother.

    okay, well that pisses me off (i'm mad at her for you!) but again... ehhehe try not to let it get to you, some people just have to say miserable things about others because they are miserable themselves and can't bear to see others happy.

    you don't even know how close i came to wanting to do that! it got to the point where i never wanted to pick up my son from her house, i made the BF do it. and i wanted to take him out of her care because who knows what kind of sh!t she was feeding him while i'm not there?! anyway, the good thing is that at least she loved him and took good care of him.

    ^ on that note, don't you sometimes wish a good smack in the face would just knock people to their senses? :roflmao: too bad it would be a very, very bad thing if you smacked your MIL in the face. okay, i'm not promoting violence, i just think of it in a comic book / cartoon sense and it cracks me up.

    Gosh, that is REALLY out of order!! I would totally shout at MIL if she ever dared talk about my mum and won't let her see her grandkids. See how she likes THAT!

    I think when you get married, you get a "Punch your in law's lights out" card. And you can use it once in extreme situations. Like the "break glass in case of emergency" for fire extinguishers.

    wow... can I ask how old you are? That sounds really tough and with the situation you're in, you're handling it very very well and I admire you for that!!

    I currently am living just out of state for my boyfriend - we are not married and have no babies - and I can tell you it's hard on me! I mean, I'm only a 45 minute plane ride from my friends and family and I can barely handle it. So really...you are doing something huge.

    Can I ask why you had to move for your DH? Does he have such an extraordinary occupation that you must stay where you currently are? I think it's very important for two people to agree on a middle ground - clearly you're not happy where you've living, you have no family/friend support and you're getting hassled by your MIL. He needs to see this and maybe you should both discuss the situation. You shouldn't have to defend yourself for purchases you make - however just make sure you can actually afford them.

    Sorry JHM but this lady, (well she is not acting like a lady) ok woman, is WAY out of line. Personally I feel that it is NONE of her business!! You are a better person than I am because I would have already told her to keep her nose out of MY personal life! At least you buy things that are investments that you can sell later if you want or need to. What your husband is doing is far worse, not that this is a game and you are keeping score, but come on gambling?? She is one of those mothers that thinks her son does no wrong and that you are the one to blame!

    WE are here for you so feel free to vent any time you like! :hug:

    I can totally identify with you. My MIL is a drama Queen. She was always saying nasty and terrible things to me. Like, she is always "joking" around asking if my DH and I are getting a divorce. She has made it clear to me on several occasions that she would take my boys away from me if we ever did divorce because I don't work and I am a stay at home mom. It used to really bother me when she would put me down and say nasty hurtful things. But my DH knows how I feel. His mom doesn't like me and I don't really care for her. I have come to realize that she can feel how she wants because I know that I take care of my DH and my boys. I always put them before myself. We have been married for almost 12 years...Our anniversary is Sept 28th. There is no way anymore that I am going to let some woman who has a miserable life knock me down and make me feel bad any more. After 12 years of marriage, I have learned to really stick up for myself. Let me tell you, once I started sticking up for myself, she has really cut down on the insults...To my face anyway...I sure she still thinks I am a no good little witch that stole her son.
    I know how you feel. When I read what you wrote all the emotions I had toward my MIL came back to me. She does that because she doesn't want to face the fact that her son has a gambling problem and needs to focus her attention towards you. She has to place the problem somewhere. She really reminds me of my own MIL. If there is no drama or chaos in her life, she has to create it somewhere. I know my MIL is entitled to feel how ever she chooses to feel and I can choose to not let her get to me. It took me years to figure that out. Has you DH said anything to her about the way that you feel and that you don't appreciate being talked to that way or being made to feel that way? I agree with everyone that she has crossed the line and you know if you can take care of your DH and son you shouldn't have to defend yourself. In my opinion, what you buy is nobody business but yours and your DH. We have a saying in our home: Our house is like Vagas. What happens here stays here.

    Done...I think...Until I find something that catches my eye

    Sounds to me like your MIL needs a serious time-out.
    I would break contact with her for now and inform her that until she treats you better you will not be talking with her. End of story.
    Remember, you married him, not her. Although she is his mother, your don't owe her anything. People have to earn respect. They are not entitled to it just because they are family.
    On another note, the gambling is bad. This needs to be dealt with. Did you take any of the advice and open another account that he doesn't have access to?

    yeah, agree with Maeveyblue
    if you don't want your MIL chews on your back, then do something to get out from debt, so that she won't/can't have anything to say about your handbags or anything at all
    I think this is the best fight back you can do.
