Managing your in laws

liilii080 liilii080
My Future in laws are coming (uninvited) to visit this weekend. They're nice enough people and we get along pretty well but everyone has their breaking point. My usual response is to sequester myself somewhere private until my emotions have simmered and then rejoin the party. What do you do to manage your relationship with your in laws?

I just sort of grin and bear it. I love my inlaws to pieces, but I just cannot spend tons of time with them. They had kids in the house for over 3 decades, and now that their youngest is out of the house and married, I think my mother-in-law misses having that company around. I understand it, but I also end up feeling sort of like we're her "pet" or something like that. Like she needs something or someone to pamper and she chose us. I know there's no malicious intent or anything like that, so I never bring it up to her because I see no reason to make her feel bad when she's just trying to be friendly, but I am going to get her a puppy one of these days, lol

I don't have to deal with my inlaws. My husband, however, has to suck it up occasionally. He bites his tongue and then gives a thorough lashing on the way home about the night's events. We call it team-building.

My in-laws live in town. They take care of my kids on a weekly basis. They're not my favorite people in the world, but they're tolerable!

Well, they're more or less tolerable. My MIL is annoying and lazy and frustrates me to all hell... Her roommate, who helped raise My Mr is awesome. So TOGETHER they're "tolerable"
