I have had issues with his family from the start. They are very controlling of him and before even knowing me decided I was bad news because he stopped going home as much. After years of abuse from them I still tried to be nice for my husbands sake. I never was rude to them or said anything rude about them to him. I respect how important family is. Well, we recently had a baby and his parents said they would come visit us. It was very important to my husband. They ended up not coming and my husband asked me if I would be willing to go to them. It had only been 3 weeks since giving birth to a 10 pound baby and his parents live 6 hours away. I knew that trip would be hard on me but I said ok because it meant a lot to him. We get there and I find out that his parents did not come because they went on a road trip to a casino instead. When they told my husband it was because they were too tired to make the trip to us. His mom was rude to me at various times and I remained polite. On our way home he asked me how I felt about the trip. I told him I felt overwhelmed and tired. It was a fairly good visit but I had a hard time with some comments made. He made excuses for them and I asked him how he would feel if I did that to him. He said he was ok with however I felt about things and his family. But when I said I was upset about some things said and thought some was not needed he snapped at me and said he didn't care. He talks about my family openly. He says my brother is a loser and he has called my mom a bitch before and I respectfully listen to him and gently ask he not be so harsh. That doesn't stop him. But I go out of my way to be nice and express concern in a polite way because he asked me how I felt and he treats me like that!? What would you do here?
