For the past two years, I've not attended my inlaws Christmas. There are various reasons why, but the main one is simple; I do not like them. DH and I are fine with the arrangement. When he got home today, he told me that his family talked crap about me. They blamed me for his lack of religious beliefs for one. My MIL stayed in an abusive relationship for 20 some odd years with my alcoholic FIL while he was in and out of prison and when DH told his Mom she should have left him years before she did, they said he was in the same situation~ I am bipolar and it escalated a few years ago (not in a dangerous way) and we separated for a few months and got back together. I don't know if that means they think we should have gotten divorced or what. Thankfully, he took up for me because their claims were stupid, but I'm extremely upset. My cousin's opinion was that saying anything about their attack on my character would let on that it affected me, but it's safe to say any one would be upset by it. Would you bother saying any thing and what would you say if you did?
