So, you find the love of your life, you get married, have kids, and live happily ever after, right? Wrong. There's a bunch of sh*t you're going to have to deal with once you marry that person. One of the biggest things that you have to worry about the in-laws.

Granted, if you were to marry the love of your life, you'd probably be getting along with their parents, right? Why would you want to subject yourself to awful people and marrying into a family that you don't even get along with? I get it, some times you do crazy things for love but this is literally the rest of your life and you've got to worry about dealing with your significant other's parents.

The horror stories of in-laws being passive aggressive, overbearing, and controlling almost make one not want to take the plunge and get married. Let's hope that when you find the one, their parents are just as amazing as your significant other and you're not married into a sh*tshow of a family.

These people have to deal with horrible in-laws:


My mother in law is a recovering drug addict (I think my husband said that the only drug he didn't witness her do was heroine) she was also physically abusive to my husband when he was a child. Because of the drug use in her past, she has medical problems as well as mental issues. She's tolerable in small doses and she's my husband's mother, so I try to be supportive and help him maintain a relationship with her. But it is difficult sometimes, when we first started dating, she sent my husband a nasty letter, blaming him for awful things that he didn't do. He didn't speak to her for several months after that.


My FIL is just an a**hole. My fiance once told him, with tears in his eyes, that he was thinking about suicide and FIL just went the f*ck off. “I don't want to deal with your sh*t right now, get the f*ck outta here with that, nobody gives a f*ck about that sh*t,” etc. It was f*cked.


MIL found out her father died in Korea three weeks after it actually happened. Her family didn't tell her because they thought she would lose it. Came home to find knives hidden in all the furniture in positions to stab us sitting down. We got our own place after that.


Beast in law insisted on taking me out for my birthday, told me the place I wanted to go is too expensive (meals were like $10.00), took me to a cheap Chinese food restaurant I don't want to go to, I ordered the cheapest shit on the menu since obviously money is a problem for her and then I end up paying for the meal.
