He really wants nothing to do with her, so I am the one who makes sure she sees her grandchildren and spends time with her. He hasn't seen her in months. He feels she is taking advantage of me. She is now refusing to drive anymore, which is fueling his animosity. Now, I want her to come for Christmas Eve dinner, but she said we will have to come and get her and take her home. I promised my father-in-law that I would take care of her, so I feel immense guilt at the thought of her being alone, however, she has alienated most of the family. If I don't help her, no one else will. I just want peace for the holidays :(

Taking care of a mentally ill, manipulative, hurtful relative doesn't mean you have to cater to them. It means you make sure they have food, clothing, shelter and medical care.
You should, IMHO, read through this group and learn some new strategies. Think of it this way: It's your relative that has all of these issues. You've told your hubs that the person is taking advantage, but your husband continues to bend over backwards to tend to the relative.
How would you feel?
