"Welcome to -- When adult children marry and leave home, life can sometimes get more complex instead of simpler.  Being a mother-in-law or daughter-in-law can be tough.  How do we extend love and support to our mothers-in-law, adult children, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, and grandchildren without interfering?  What do we do when there are communication problems?  How can we ask for help when we need it without being a burden?  And how do our family members feel about these issues?  We invite you to join our free forum, read some posts... and when you're ready...share your challenges and wisdom."

Oh it has taken me almost 5 years but I feel I'm back to me almost and moving forward.  So much has gone on I guess I could write a book . My question is how are you and are some of my old buddies still here.


Hi again!  My situation is the same.  Still no contact with OS/DIL, and they have two children now.  I've let that go and just decided that's how it is.  Hate it, but don't dwell on it any longer.

YS/DIL and I are still very close.  They have 3 children now, who are my joys.  He's still in the service 15 hours away, so visits are only a couple of times of year, but SKYPE is my best friend.

So even though not much has changed, I have changed.  Things are 10000% better because I changed and just accepted the non-relationship and enjoy those that want to be in my life.  It's made a huge difference.
