That when a husband gets along with his wife's family, the couple is more likely to stay married.
When the wife gets along with the husband's family, the couple is more likely to get divorced.
Anyone else got a rock solid relationship like me? lol DH gets along with my family, and I have been banned from Dh's family!
Poor screwed up family. MIL was a shitty mom, did drugs and slept around, pawned her kids off all the time, emotionally abusive. She threw a hissy fit on FB about us not being up her butt anymore like we used to be- ya know, now that we are grown with jobs and I am in school full time, oldest DD is in school,etc; we dont have as much butt kissing time for her anymore. So in her hissy fit, she said she "suffered and sacrificed" for her kids and they dont even love her anymore...DH confronted her, told her to stop the sillyness on FB and talk to him like an adult if she had an issue...she was not working at the time and knows where WE live...she could always come here instead of expecting us to drop what we are doing, pack up 3 kids, and drive 20 minutes to her house. Anyways, she whined to the whole family about how terrible we were being to her and we have been cut out of the family! Nevermind the majority of the family do drugs, have criminal records, in and out of jail and mental hospitals,pull guns on their spouses in the presence of kids,steal from eachother, claim all the guys in the family rape them, steal other's gifts at family christmas parties...I mean, this is a movie worthy family....anyways, just wanted to vent. Kinda getting irritated with the situation. She abandons her kids and does drugs their whole life, and the minute they stand up for themselves they are the black sheep? I think the only person who can understand that logic is someone who can write a prescription to cure it! Just sucks around the holidays we have been excluded from their family events. I do not care, DH is jumping for joy we dont have to go, but my kids will miss seeing their cousins :( My heart hurts for them.
