15 Things You Should NEVER Say to His Mom

LOL 23

Figuring out how to handle your new guy's family can range from 0 to impossible, ESPECIALLY if you guys are freshly together or he doesn't see his family a lot. Or the reverse - if he sees his family all the time. There's always that awkward bit: you know they're judging you, you're just hoping that it's in a good way.

But there are ways to win them over -- and ways to make them hate you. So in that vein, read on for things you should never, EVER say to his mom.

1) "Are you sure you need to be calling him every day?"

2) "Wow - I think Freud wrote about you and your son."

3) "How much butter did you ADD to this meal? I can feel my arteries hardening already!"

4) "Your son is AMAZING in bed. Wow."

5) "I know it's only been a few weeks, but I can already hear wedding bells in our future!"

6) "Is THAT the engagement ring you'll be giving him to give to me? Because I'm going to have to get that stone re-set."

7) "Are you really a member of the NRA? Yikes!"

8) "So, how big is (insert husband's name here) down there?"

9) "I cannot wait to stay at home and raise the babies while your son earns the money."

10) "So how much is (insert boyfriend's name here) worth once you're dead?"

11) "He loves me more than he loves you!"

12) "I don't believe women should have to work."

13) "I've been aching to be a trophy wife for SO LONG."

14) "Well, at least The Clap is treatable!"

15) "We both hate using condoms - they just don't feel very good!"

I feel that I was truly blessed when it came to my MIL. She passed away almost 4 years ago and we still miss her a lot. I think this list is pretty funny, but I think MOST women would have better sense than to say any of these things to a guy's mom.

Surely this article is purely a joke...right? I mean...who says these things??

If my future DIL told me she was going to stay home and raise my grandchildren while my son supported the family I'd be ecstatic.

Aside from the whole staying at home thing, its hilarious! And no, I have no interest even jokingly about my FILs size down there. I love my in laws but GROOOSSSSSS! How much is he worth when your dead! Priceless! Lol

My MIL is so awesome, I could say any of these to her and she wouldn't bat an eye. It is possible I love my MIL more than my own mom.

Noone actually says those things

And while those things wouldn't get said, if a mil has a problem with her son working and the wife staying home, then she needs to mind her own business.

If she has a problem with her son marrying a trophy wife, then she needs to mind her own business.

If she is calling every day then she needs to freakin' stop.

And most of all, she needs to hold her son accountable for things too. It's not the trophy wife's fault her man wanted... a trophy wife. Daughters in law get blamed for things that are the man's doing or that he has partial responsibility for.

I say the first comment to my mother in law all the time. I dont care if I win that woman over. They talk 3-5 times a day. Its annoying because the woman thinks she needs to know every detail of our life and he's such a mamas boy that he tells her every detail.,He doesnt have the balls to tell her to butt out.

My MIL is an absolute nutcase. I can't stand to be in the same room with her for 5 minutes. She purposely says degrading things to me and about me to my husband. He's actually threatened to disown his parents because o her behavior. I would probably say these things just to shut her up! LOL
