Mother-in-laws by another name are monsters

There are advantages of being married. I just can't think of any right now.

Seriously, there are advantages of being married. One of them is not my mother-in-law.

My mother-in-law is always on top of things. Our Chihuahua hates that.

What I hate about my mother-in-law is she procrastinates. Last time she came to visit for a week, she ended up staying three months.

Every time, I would try to ask her when she planned to leave, she'd tell me to wait.

My husband isn't much better in the procrastination department. One day, he said he was going to take out the trash. The next day, I noticed his mom was still there.

I went to a therapist so I could learn to cope with my mother-in-law. I knew my problem was serious when the therapist started confiding in me.

I considered getting a divorce. But because of the pre-nuptial agreement, my husband would get the house and I'd get my mother-in-law.

My husband always takes my mother-in-law's side. He said it was because when he was 4 years old, she glued herself to him.

My husband's family is like a giant circus act. However, his mom doesn't ride a tricycle nearly as well as that bear does.

When I suggested that my mother-in-law actually join the circus, she said she didn't want to work in a tent. I said, "Why not, you wear one?"
