    Be a real pain back! smile  I would probably figure this out before I got married so I could plan to live far away and only see her on requisite holidays.  If it got bad, I would probably address it with her and address it with my husband.

    I have one of those:I  have cut off communication with her entirely.

    I do have a mother in law who is a real pain, but I am always cordial when she is not. I knew what I was getting into and decided a long time ago that I would just have to love her for who she is. I make a conscious effort not to complain about her because she is my husbands MOTHER. She deserves respect. I also try hard to make her feel comfortable when she is here because she is also GRANDMOTHER. Just my opinion. I hope that helps.

    In keeping with best-practices in marital therapy, I would ask my partner to set the appropriate boundaries to protect the emotional connection in our marriage.

    Well, you need to know this. You didn't married her. If you love your wife, or husband. Your relationship should stay only superficial, in the end she can't live forever and you can't invade all family reunions. Love it or not she's part of your family. On the other side you can always move away. Works for me. Christmas I can handle.

    LIve as far away from her as possible. If I couldn't do that, then I would take tapdancing lessons in preparation for the day the old biddy has a grave that can be danced on.

    I would try to stay clear of her and see or talk to her only when necessary....if at all possible.
