There were never any "good old days" — they are today, they are tomorrow
Some jokes I'm glad I don't get

any love that is love is right
You know all those jokes about horrible, critical, interfering, you'll-never-be-good-enough-for-my-precious-son-and-don't-think-I'll-ever-let-you-forget-it mothers-in-law?

Completely alien to my experience.

spiritualmonkey's mom, WarmheartedMonkey, has never been anything other than loving, caring, welcoming, and generous to the weirdo Californian her (weirdo) son married.

I just wanted to say that.

My mom and grandma were the same way; they did stuff together because they were friends, without my dad.

I get along well with hun's mom. She is a nice person, and I like spending time with her.

Amy was very close to my mother, too. Unfortunately, she lost her own mother about eight years before we met, but I'm sure I would have loved her. I think the "hateful mother in law" thing is a minority experience that gets talked about a lot simply because it is statistically uncommon compared to the other.
