My Married Life: No, I Won't Friend My Mother-in-Law on Facebook!

Today on “Married Life” board, one woman asked “Could someone please kick my mother-in-law off Facebook?” It really made me laugh. Because, while I’m lucky enough to have a pretty nice MIL, I do occasionally (like whenever she’s around) feel suffocated by her.

About a month ago, my brother-in-law, who is already my friend on Facebook, suggested I become friends with her. I’m not ashamed to say that I did not friend her. Nor do I have any plans to. I figure, I’m comfortable with our current level of interaction -- just barely. So I’m gonna go ahead and hold on to a boundary or two.

What do you think? Have any of you “friended” your MIL on Facebook? Any horror stories?
