My husband has 2 kids and I have one....no shared children. Although my daughter has been in his life since she was 1. This last year my husband deployed and things got weird. My daughter and I were excluded from his parents lives (they have been divorced since my husband was 3 and are both remarried.) I kept in touch with them sending pictures, sending e-mails, remembering holidays, birthdays etc but they had no interest in seeing us eventhough they only live 45 minutes away.
They ignored birthdays, christmas etc as far as we were concerned, but they had no problem contacting me to get christmas lists for my husband and his two children. (As is done every year...except my daughter and I are normally included). Now my husband is home from the Middle East and my feelings have been hurt all year. I have voiced this with my husband since he left. He says if I have a problem with it...then I should stand up for myself and my daughter and say something. I feel he should say something....he is their son and the only dad she knows. I realize that my daughter is not their bio grandchild, but she has been in the picture for the last 7+ years. I am hurt by their lack of interest in me and my daughter. I am frusterated by my husband allowing his family to treat us this way. Am I being too sensitive? Any suggestions?
