  • My mmil doesn't like the fact that I stand up for myself. I'm not going to let someone tell me that I should be doing this or that. We have been debating on moving to a different state, of course the in laws made it all about them ( mil even texted my dh, " when are you taking our babies away from us" bs!) but when we talked to them about it I told them why, I'm sick of being stepped on and expected to take it, I'm sick of them holding the fact that we had money issues 3 years ago, over our heads. They keep saying money isn't everything, but then they say things like, what if something happens like after you had ds.... Oye!!! (sorry for the vent) anyways... Dh hates that we don't get along but sees my side. He won't tell his mom anything bc she will cry to dhs dad and then he will come and complain. Dh avoids situations that will make his mom and I butt heads... But know it bothers him, I'm not a door mat though....

  • My parents love my husband.. If they did not like my husband, I would have never married him.

  • I know A LOT of my husband's family doesn't like me. We remain civil and we keep words to one another short. I avoid conversations with them and I don't share my opinions as much as I can avoid it. I am very opinionated, outspoken, and straight forward, so it's not always easy for me to bite my tongue. However, when it comes to certain members of his family I just keep to myself. If they bring up drama and I feel I need to speak up, I will. However, usually I just leave them to their own and don't bring anything to a front if it doesn't need be.
