what do i say to him to make him feel better?

my husbands father and stepmother have been upsetting him lately. they don't get a long with us but we still talk every once and awhile. his dad doesn't accept him for who he is because our beliefs are totally different. his 2 little brother's can't even stay with us because i was raised by bikers so they don't trust me which is BS! they are those annoying kind of people the "bible pushing... defending your country is the only acceptable job" kind of people (no offense but let's be open minded here). we are not like at all and we would never bash someone for their beliefs but his dad called him a terrorist and never asks about his grandchildren when they talk and idk what to say to make him feel better? i was raised totally different. i don't wanna say don't talk to them anymore but it's getting to the point where i want to!

  • my SO's family can be fucked up sometimes too & he gets upset. i just tell him, dont worry about it - we are a family now and you are going to be better to our children and they are going to have a great life.

  • yeah there's really not much you can do... the family your DH chose is you and your children. he just got stuck with those a*holes by dumb luck. it still hurts, but you can't change it. that sucks. :-(
