They call up here and always ask to speak to him reg. things that are a couples decisions. His Mom will buy us things for the house/ kids and ask him if it is ok, even if I answer the phone- they dont bother asking me about anything. Then I end up urguing with hubby cause he doesnt value my opionion. ie. his mom bought the baby a swing for her birthday to go in the yard- well I like going to the park to talk to the other Moms and she can see the other kids. I did not want a swing for the yard. I am not ungrateful, I did not say anything to his Mom, but this is what she does( all the time)- his family never asks me. For xmas they bought this horrible Santa for our yard & they never asked me- I could go on and on. What can I do about this?? They act like its only his house and like he is my boss.

Look at it this way. It's just as much his house as it is yours. So you didn't want a swing in the yard. Maybe he did. Isn't his opinion just as important as yours? And of course his family is going to go to him. They are his family. Maybe you should try having a relationship with his mother. Things may go a little differently. In the meantime appreciate that she is thinking of you and say thank you.
