  • she needs to back off.
    this is between you and him and right now he's in a fragile emotional state and needs support from ppl, not his mom hatin gon you. its not your fault...or his. just need to get thru this. its none of her damn business. her ony place is to be supportive. and the fact she is shunning her grand daughter, what a bitch

  • Well I would say you have to respect her house rules just like you would expect her to respect yours. He chooses to be at that home knowing you guys arent allowed there. He has to be the man here. He has to choose to come home and work it out or stay there and continue to be apart.

  • You said, his sister was murderd.. I think your husband knows he is in debt and I think he needs his space from hearing about the debt. MIL has lost a daughter that was murderd. Come on... They are mad at the world now... Let up on your husband. He is protecting his mother right now... She needs him. I'm not saying you don't need him, but give them time. I'm so sorry to hear you lost your SIL... Forgive the both of them when time is needed.

  • What was the email thing about? Does that have anything to do w/ his mom wanting distance from you & the kids?

    Was is the email that made him upset? Or was it something else.

    I do believe though that his mother is over stepping her boundaries. But, he will always be her son, and in times of need a good mother will never ever back away from a child of hers in need, no matter how old they are. Keep that in mind.

  • Time to get the toxic MIL out of your life. Hubby needs to choose. You or mom.
