Some of have been blessed with a Mother-In-Law who is caring, patient, understanding and nurturing; unfortunately, some of us haven’t.

Whether you’ve got a fairy-tale MIL or the MIL from hell, you’ll know that they say some very funny things; so we’ve compiled a few of the craziest quotes we’ve heard.

1. My ex’s mom said, ‘We really wish you were like Lisa [his ex]. But I guess you will just have to do. You’re not as pretty as her, but makeup helps a little.

2. My MIL wrote her son a letter a week before we got married telling him to think very carefully about what he was doing, as he needed to be sure he was marrying someone he loved and trusted (we’d been together for 6 years).

She later walked out of our wedding in tears, drove home (7 hours away!) without saying anything to anyone and then followed that up by emailing me saying she didn’t know what husband (her son) saw in me.

3. She says she has to go to church ‘to ask god to forgive me and her son for sleeping in the same bed’.

4. After I married her son, she told me, ‘Your children never marry the one that you want them to marry.’ Then she attempted to play it off as if she didn’t mean me. Epic fail!”

5. On my best friend’s wedding day, her mother-in-law said only one sentence to her: ‘It’s not too late to back out, you know.’

6. She posted a work out video on Facebook, tagged me and it, and wrote ‘now you have no excuse’ under it.

7. My MIL stole a stack of our wedding invitations to send to her friends that we weren’t inviting. We wanted a small, intimate wedding with only people we knew and loved. I hardly knew a soul there.

8. My MIL suggested my husband go on ‘The Bachelor.’ I was sitting right there and said ‘But he’s already married”. She replied, ‘Well, maybe he could meet someone new.’

9. Whenever we invite her over for dinner she texts me a list of what she wants to eat, like “see you at 5, I want soup and homemade cake”. I refuse on principle to have her dictate what I make so I just ignore it. Even if I’d planned soup, as soon as she texts I will make curry instead, and no cake at all.

10. At a Chinese food restaurant: MIL “why don’t you take home the leftovers, you’re good at eating leftovers.” Luckily everyone at the table realized it was ridiculous and now I get the leftovers every time by reminding her that I’m good at eating them.
