Is it right of me not wanting to visit my in-laws?

My husband and I have been married 13 yrs. His mom has not liked me from day 1. She is always so critical of everything I do. She complains what I feed the kids, What they wear and everything elsle. This weekend my husband wants to go down and visit but I would rather him just take the kids and go!! He visits my family(they love him) am I obligated to visit his. I just don't think I can deal with her again!!!

  • I agree salexander, not many of us want to go to the inlaws. I got to where I didn't go to mine either. But now we live clear across the country from them and I don't have to worry about it. LOL

  • my dad used to say don't spend five minutes with anyone you can't stand or doesn't respect you. Send the kids with dad

  • I think you should go and respectful talk back to her, lol. Thats just me. I don't deal with people like that for long before I snap at them. I demand respect from relatives, even on dh's side. I know, I'm probably wrong though. You might want to stay home!

  • No considering the info you have given, I would question your sanity if you actually wanted to go!
