LeeAnn has some highly entertaining in-laws. That is, if you find shows like Jerry Springer and Dr. Phil entertaining.
Personally, I don’t understand in-law problems. My mother-in-law was a wonderful person and a great friend. The rest of my husband’s family are great too. They are more like real family to me than in-laws. When I talk about “my family” more than half the time I’m talking about my in-laws. My daughter-in-law and I are culturally incompatible (i.e. few tastes in common) but she’s a very sweet person and we get along great.
Of course there’s not much you can do when you’re dealing with someone who is clearly missing a few cards from their deck but, very often, getting along with another person is entirely a matter of choice. We can’t all be best friends but we can all at least be civil to each other. I know… there are some people who, no matter how civil you are, continue to be rude, demanding, judgmental and generally difficult and in those cases I’m clueless. As I said, I just don’t understand these things.
