  • Yes it happens. Sometimes I am convinced it is because you took their adult child away, and nobody would ever be good enough for that person. So do what you can to be agreeable and keep the peace.

  • my mil and fil are good people, they try to get a long with everyone, but my dh's sisters are a nightmare, both are drug addicts who everyday are plotting and trying to start some kind of drama, they lie and lie and lie, they don't want the inlaws talking to or being friendly with dh, it is so crazy the way they act. they have went as far as calling the local veterans hospital on fil saying he needs locked up because he isn't right in the head and tried to put him away so dh couldn't be near him. one of the sisters are only half , they are so jealous of the relationship dh and I have with the mil and fil that they go above and beyond to hurt everyone involved.

  • Don't waste your time trying to "please" them. Just love them and be kind to them when you have the opportunity. I was never able to succeed in making anyone like me, even though I tried really hard for about the first 55 years or so of my life. Just be yourself. Love your husband. And let the rest take care of itself. If they want to be snarky, let them be snarky. It does not have to affect you nor who you are as a person!

  • Maybe you are trying so hard that it feels false to them. Just be your nice self and love them for who they are and hopefully they will respond.
