To start I would like to say I love my mother in law...She is great..My husband and I have been together for 6 years almost without a problem from her..Its my husbands dad that is the problem.Craigs parents are divorced so of course this means everything is seperated with us...His dad lives only about 35 minutes away and has came to see our child twice (Both times he was invited and stayed less then half an hour).We have however,went to his house and tried to see him but we were met with rude comments and made to feel as though we aren't welcome..When we were first married my father-in-law was fine to us.Its since our child was born 17mths ago that things changed..Should I try hareder or just forget the A** Whole that never even calls to check on his only grandchild??

Feb. 1, 2008 at 11:57 AM I have the devoriced in-laws also. One set is wonderful and great. The other side my kids have to keep asking what their names are. And I don't mean the real ones I mean the what do we call them ones. My oldest is 8 and I can probably count on my hands how many times we have seen them. We just take it as it goes. If they call and say we want to see you we will be there we are happy and hope that everything goes fine. Usually it does though a while back we had a big blow up and it took a while for them to get over it. But his dad is really a quite guy and with drown from everyone so I just take it as he is that way. I hope that stuff works out for you soon.
