Today, I had to break up a fistfight between my wife and mother. Apparently, my mom heard that I finally got the great paying job of my dreams, and told my wife I'd finally kick her "useless ass to the curb." We have to spend the holidays together. FML

You could kick your mom to the curb and not invite her over for holidays.

That seems like something my family would do

I know your pain man, moms never like who you pick so just got to except that and love who your with.

Meh u should of left her sorry ass and changed the locks on your house and to be honest just tell your mom it help remember friends are there but family is forever :)

In this case the mother is the one who instigated this issue. And once you marry someone you make them part of your family too. OP should definitely not leave his wife!

So who was winning the fist fight?

That sounds like the wife is a straight boss..wish I was bold/crazy enough to throw blows with my douchey mil.

Ditto 1, though they never got in an actual fist fight I'm sure there was more than one occasion where my mom wanted to hit my grandma for all of the shit she put her through...Luckily for me I'll never have to go through that, cause not only does my MIL like me, she also lives in a different country.

31- the word you are looking for is accept.

Am I the only one thinking Jerry Springer?

If she's such a bitch, why invite her in the first place??

There is no such thing as "HAVE to spend the holidays together".

She probably flew in from another state. I suggest she stays at a hotel in the meantime.

Did it ever occur to you guys that she might have a justification for her actions? Why just jump on the mother ad the bad one?

Even if the mother had a justified reason for starting such a thing, she shouldn't have boldly said it to the wife like that without some consequences. The mother should TRY to be happy with whoever her son picks as a wife. The son could damn well just say "**** you mom" and never invite his mother to any get togethers. If the wife is a stay at home mom (if they have kids) she chooses to be and he obviously has no problem with it. Some people prefer it that way. As to the OP, sorry you got such drama in your life. Try sitting down with your mother and explaining to her that this is the woman you want in your life and your mother just has to accept it. And if that doesn't work, tell your mother that until she can knock off the bitchy attitude, you won't be seeing her for a while. I don't know. Those are just options.

92 I won't read that long of a comment this late at night so I will assume its educated and makes a good point. Thumbs up.

80 - If the mother were justified, I would assume that the OP wouldn't be posting an FML about the situation. Clearly he DIDN'T think the mother was justified, which is why this is on here. glad I only have one of them.

You don't seem to be sticking up for your wife much in this situation. If it were my mom saying things like that to my husband - she wouldn't be invited back until she learned to be polite. Simple. She apparently knows she can get away with it though, so - grow a pair. Tell her she's inappropriate.

anonymous100000 17

yeah. OP, you don't HAVE to spend holodays together. grow a pair, act like a man and defend your wife and if your mom doesn't agree then don't force them to spend holidays together.

OP's from Oklahoma. Am I the only one thinking the wife and mother are the same person? She sounds like she needs to cut the masochism out for her own safety.

That's right folks, the ridiculous part should've tipped you off that it was a joke. A shit joke, yeah, but still a joke. Sure are some uptight internet macho men around here..

Corygerm 9

that's a good joke. screw what they say

There is a fine line between being funny and being an asshole. You are standing on that line.

Yeah? You wanna see pure asshole, go over to the photograph FML and take a look at Perdix. You're such a concerned citizen, stop wasting your fake offense on me and go chew that bigshot out, I'll be watching and waiting :))

I'm from Oklahoma & that's not funny at all. Its rather insulting. Where you live has to have ****** up familes too. So you need to shut your stereotypical mouth & **** yo' couch.

**** yo couch? Like slide your **** in between the cushions like it's a fifi bag? I am not familiar with this?? Please clarify for the New Yorker...

**** yo couch must be a Oklahoman thing then. :)

**** yo couch is a Rick James quote. The comment was irrelevant, but I thought I'd clear up the "oklahoma thing" predicament you all seem to be in lol

murphy22 6

Hey easy now people. Im a proud oklahoman but I will admit we have a mix of all types of people here. Trailer trash, Rednecks, country people (there's a huge huge difference trust me lol) low class, gangsters, city people ( who are honestly stupider then the rednecks most of the time) middle class, even some highly educated upper class. Hell we have alot of california relocations so we can't be that full of trailer trash Jerry springer show wannabes lol no making fun of us as a people, feel free to make fun of how we give directions though!!

You pretty much confirmed the ppl from Oklahoma have issues if you guys **** couches there... Just sayin

88 - It is from "the Chappelle Show" one of the skits that included Rick James.

bamagrl410 31

Actually, it's some new phrase that people use to intend more disrespect than just a simple f you. It basically means f you & your property. However, 78 kinda used it in the wrong context. Ah well, still funny.

People make jokes about incest being big where I live. It is just a joke. No need to be upset unless you are in to incest and fond it insulting that others are looking down upon it.

Alexisthebestest 16

The difference between you & Perdix is that he is funny & you are not.

iDaniel525 8

Hahahahaha so your wife hit her? Classy lady you have there!

bizarre_ftw 21

Well at least he knows his kids will always be safe

Reminds me of a time when my mom kicked my ass to the curb. It was that day that I bought my iPod, laptop and my first cardboard box home…
