Hi girls, Not sure if this is the right place but I find the rest of the forum a little scary still Just a quick question about MILs. OH and I aren't married but we live together and have been together for 3 years. OH's mum is a nice lady although she can be a bit difficult-OH is an only child and she has limited mobility so he used to do a lot to help her when he lived at home. At the moment she isn't talking to me as 'I don't interact with her enough', she expects me to ring her every day just to chat, go over on my days off etc. I'm quite a shy person and am not really a fan of talking on the phone, I only really talk to my mum! As for my days off, they are so few and far between that I don't want to spend them with OH's parents, especially as all we usually do is sit around and watch tv. MIL also smokes heavily which I hate. So my question is this, am I just odd? Do you all have a close relationship with your OH's mothers? It's really getting me down as I don't like to upset people but I don't see what else I can do, feel like she's manipulating me?
