  • If she won't accept an apology after it has been given, drop it. That's her problem - you have apologized, that is all you need to do.

  • You have done your part. Now it's up to her to grow up and get over it.

    I would not apologize again. If it was given honestly, then she either will accept it or not. You cannot change her feelings.

  • Apologize once, Not sure of the details, but put yourself in her shoes. If you had a son who's wife did or said whatever you did to her, what would it take to make things better? Words are cheap, easy and a hopeful quick fix. Put some heart into it and you will win her back.

  • You've done your part. Now it's her turn. Whatever it is, is in the past.

  • You apologized, what else can you do? Give her time.

  • Maybe she's a bitch and you should sweat it.

  • Maybe after a few weeks invite her over, if she lives nearby, for dinner with you and DH. I hope it works out.

  • I'd not call or email. Just leave her alone, she will either forgive you and contact you or you'll never speak to her again. If you don't respect her wishes it will only cause more damage.
