Hi what is old is new again!

Hi there peeps. I found FnF forum when my youngest DS married at a young age. I found myself being a MIL - and a new role that I wanted to 'get right'.

My role model was my own DMIL - who is now passed her wisdom she imparted and remaining "Switzerland" through our own marital difficulties - she stood by BOTH of us.

I am attempting to use that same wisdom with my adult sons and DIL's.

It's tough and I know that many when searching for relationship questions and advice will "google" their specifics and find themselves here.

I hope that you can find the answers, advice and wisdom that I had found here.

I'm going to do my best to be a helpful person here.

I wish for everyone a great day and answers to the dilemmas that we all face as humans with a desire to be happy.

Hi trixxie --

what a wonderful share! Its heartwarming to know that you have what sounds like a great mil. The "stood by BOTH of us" is a rare find. imo.

And what a great way to honor her memory by emulating her.

Life can be a challenge for many. Relationships, as well. Power over and taking sides is all too common. I'd take neutral advice and wisdom every chance I could!!

Oh, there are many who share your feelings, here. It's a great place.

Re: Hi what is old is new again!

Thank you both!

I'm going to try to be around - instead of just asking for help when I need it!

Hi Trixxie,
How old was your DS when he got married? I also want to be a good MIL but there are unknown challenges in this mix sometimes. Though I'm a mother in law to several (we have six kids between us, all either have been married or are married). It seems like the only current issues always involve my DS (the youngest) whom also got married young and became a father at age 19. She left him for another man after 6 years and they divorced in 2014.

Now DS is engaged and getting married in less than two months, so there is a new DIL in this mix. I will welcome any help I can get to insure harmony. I got along fine with his first wife, and I still do, after some tumultuous times after the D but things are settled down now (hopefully!)
