Before we met, my husband was totally dedicated to his mother and siblings, to an unbelievable extend. He married me at a mature age, and only told his mom about me AFTER our wedding. This made her furious and resentful of me.
During all these years I could not make her like me, and could not stop her verbal daggers. I love my husband, but his mother and siblings have always been his first priority. I am tired of spending family holidays either alone or neglected and verbally abused.
He always thinks I'm wrong and she's right. She attacks me, and he says he didn't hear a word.
What should I do? He doesn't agree with councelling - he thinks his family is PERFECT, and I'm always wrong.

You join this group and tell them what you just said. They have tons of experience with toxic in laws and weak husbands.
See, what you have is a mamma's boy and he is your real problem, it's not your MIL. You can't make her like you, but your first priority is to make your DuH understand that YOU and your family are his first priority. If he doesn't want to do that, then this is what your future looks like. But like I said, follow the link and join the group. They will tell you what to do and what NOT to do, they've been through it all before.
