One thing I have to say, you really can't fault my mother in law's loyalty to her boys. difficult child has never been her favourite grandchild and she has usually always found a fault on him. But when it comes to 'other women' and her boys, even difficult child, you can be sure all possible fault lays on the woman. difficult child and his girlfriend split last weekend after being together about two years and living together over a year. Everyone who thinks break-up was solely girlfriend's fault, raise your hand. Yeah, no hands up. I don't know much about what happened, I don't want to know what happened, but I'm very sure there was two persons in that relationship causing it to go sour. That is certainly not how mother in law thinks. For her, it is about this wretched witch taking advantage and using her poor and innocent grandchild. According to difficult child she got so vile that difficult child had to start to defend his ex. I can imagine. While difficult child is certainly not husband, who defecates pure gold, if you ask mother in law, or my easy child who is almost as good, it seems even difficult child is to be kept much higher pedestal than any girl he may be with. Kind of sad from woman who has three daughters. But I guess it was good for difficult child to feel validated and that for once his granny was on his side.
