My son has proposed to his lovely girlfriend, and she has said yes!!!

We're thrilled, but I am also very nervous - I know full well that I'm very likely to be unable to do right for doing wrong as a MIL!!!

So, help me please to put together the MN Ultimate MIL Guide of promises I can give her on the big day...

I have a nice mil the only things she has done that really annoy me are:

Expecting dc1 to stay whole weekend with her, every weekend when he was only 6 months and I was working ft - led to a bit of a fall out.

Spends more on dh at birthdays and Christmas where my parent spend the same on both of us.

Had comments about bf, holding too much yet she is very possessive of grand kids

On the plus she can see dh's faults and never takes sides in an argument. She has probably saved our marriage several times by mediating
