DH and I have been fighting constantly, about his disregard of OUR family- me & our 3 kids. His Mom is very rude & disrespectful but I'm not supposed to say anything because she might get mad. His siblings treat her the same way. They keep quiet and let her walk all over them just so she won't throw a fit. He says he's not on her side, but he doesn't want to start anything. He'd rather me be upset. We don't have any gifts yet for our kids & DH won't tell MIL she still owes us $100. She's lied once and said she paid him already. Now he won't bring it up because she'll cause a scene, and still won't pay him. I don't care if she gets mad! We have a new baby and 2 other kids to care for! She's out there gambling every weekend! I am not letting that woman ruin Christmas, especially our 5 month old's first Christmas! Even if she throws a fit & doesn't pay up, I think I have every right to tell her that we expect our money NOW.

I'd talk to her myself, and not care if she got pissed. If hubs isn't willing to take care of it, and it needs to be done, that means you. Sure, it's his mom, and it would be ideal for him to, but if he's not going to then, again, that leaves you. It's a shame everyone tip toes around her. That's why she continues with it, because she can. Good luck and be strong!
