  • Your DH has to put them in their place. Until that happens it will be chaos. I've lived it. Once my hubby finally realized that he needed to back me up TOTALLY, then everything got much better. Until then, hold your head high and always be the bigger person. Good luck.

  • If he can't make her understand....then I would move. You don't need that drama around your family.
    Is your husband following through with your MIL? I know that my husband would tell his mom to stop and then they would talk the next day. She needs to know he's serious. I was so happy when my husband grew some balls.

  • He needs to cut his losses. YOU are his wife and if they can't respect that then they need to get out of your life. My mom was the same way with my husband. He's provided a comfortable life where I can get a massage, pedicure, new hairdo, or whatever I want, when I want it. He's made life wonderful for our son and all my bio mom can do is treat him the same way his family treats you. I finally decided that they needed to start respecting MY choice to love and be with the man I chose. You need to sit him down and discuss this and tell him what he may end up losing. MIL's CAN and WILL break up a marriage if then can.

  • At least your hubby is behind you on this one and is standing up to them. Change your cell number.. and if they say it's fine that they don't care if they see your child or not, then it's their loss. It's sad that people are like that, but I'd say change your numbers, and that will cut down that part of it. If they hated me, I wouldn't want them moving in with me, or being around me period. Long as hubby is behind you, ignore them as much as you can.

  • Didn't you see any of this before you got married?

  • Do you show him the texts your SIL's send you?

    I have to ask, is all of this completely unprovoked? It's really hard to have a feud with only one side. I think I feel sorry for your husband because he's in the middle of people he loves dearly. Maybe you and MIL need to think about him for a minute and bury the hatchet on your own so that he doesn't have to choose between the two of you.
