My new mother in law ( we got married in december and I am also pregnant with our first child ) ... prefers my husbands ex to me, and that really hurts my feelings. I also believe MIl does this on purpose because when my husband and the ex were together, MIL didnt want anything to do with her...
I came into this relationship not knowing about "their relationship" , in fact I was really hoping for a close relationship with my mother in law .. my husbands says to try to ignore it but I cant as we live RIGHT NEXT DOOR to them ( MIL & FIL ) ...
Mil spends time with her, tells her things about us ( about my pregnancy, about how I have decorated our house, etc ) ... she even threw his ex a little birthday party ( we didnt go to it ) ... she even invites her to family get to-gethers... ( like easter ) ... And even though I dont hate his ex ( i cant say I actually hate her ) ... but it just bothers me so much to be around this woman (who has slept with, my husband).. and now.. MIL has " let it slip" that the ex is still in love with him......... WHY IN THE WORLD would she tell MIL that, and why would MIL tell me that ??? It has to be on purpose...
I mean at first I liked MIL, and when we moved next door ( they owned this house and sold it to us) i was kind of excited .. I pictured walking next door and having lunch together, taking walks with the baby ( we live by country trails ).. but now I sit at home and have to see his ex over there doing those things !
Also, it is easy to see I treat my husband very well, I take care of our home, and I am so excited to be a mommy ... and yet she choses a woman who lost custody of her child- whose father is the guy she cheated on my husband with ! and my husband said she treated him really badly too and was a complete slob... But now is mother in laws new BFF...
