We hear about crazy in-laws — especially mothers-in-law — all the freaking time. So one person was wondering: what about the in-law stories told from the "crazy" ones' perspective?
A Reddit post entitled, "Mother-In-Laws of Reddit, in the interest of fairness, what are your crazy daughter-in-law stories?" shows us that frequently, MILs get a bad name when really everyone involved is madder than a box of cats. In-laws of all stripes shared their stories of why they're misunderstood.
I was the s***** DIL, we married young and she would try to help a little too much. I would feel suffocated with her and felt like she was judging everything I did. 4-5 years later I realized she was just trying what she thought was best for us and we now have the best relationship. - lovecake
When I first met [my daughter-in-law], she was a tweaker, she knew I knew and she hated me. Now she stays home and knits and crafts and I have not seen my grandson in 3 years. She still hates me. - kikuyu2020
