My husband's sisters are outright liars. They have never tried to reach out to their brothers' wives. They use them for what they can get out of them. They have literally conducted character assassinations on their sister-in-laws because they feel threatened. They actually did not attend the wake for a sister-in-law in lieu of attendance at a local dance. NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO TO THEIR WIVES, THE BROTHERS WILL NOT SPEAK UP AGAINST THEIR SISTERS. THE OUTCOME HAS BEEN HORRIFIC TO THE HEALTH OF THE SISTER-IN-LAWS. Two are dead! The others in poor health. It has been destructive to all of the marriages yet the brothers are interested in the approval from their sisters. And did I mention, there are drugs and alcohol always involved.

I am in disbelief because I did not think that people could stoop as low as this group. And I wonder, is God watching? I have lost faith over this treatment and I no longer attend church. I have been an extremely giving for my entire life and I stopped donating my time and money. I no longer love my husband and don't want to stay with him after 40 years of marriage. I have wasted my life!

I keep waiting for God to show me some kind of sign that He was putting His foot down, but no. Nothing!
Evil wins out - always has and always will.

Keep up the crazy mil

Posted on Wed, Nov. 25, 2015 at 07:46 am

Mil now text and calls dh for every little thing regarding her favorite golden child. Everything from what her friends are doing to how she is going to do xyz. To the golden child who is so perfect. dh wanted me to get more involved with the mil because I think he needs a buffer to the crazy ass texts and calls in minutia about the golden.

Tag not it. Let the crazy fly but I remain detached. And further more, I don't want to hear anything about it. I'm off living a life with healthy friends in a peaceful life. So don't bother me with details of something I don't care anything about. Ever. It's her obsession so don't make it mine. I hope she keeps it up. Maybe dh will eventually notice of crazy this is and how mentally off mil really is.

Giving up

Posted on Tue, Nov. 24, 2015 at 11:52 pm

After 20 years of competing for DH attention im giving up. I know and have known from the beginning that the ILS will always come first. Silly me to think i could just look past it. DH is just as bat shit crazy as they are. The loneliness is getting to be too much. So DH can keep on being up his family's ass because im done. Id rather eat dog shit wrapped in fire ants then suffer another day in this marriage. The ILS are definitely a breaking point for me but DH not giving a damn to repair us is the end. I hope at my age someone good is still out there so i can at least know what real happiness feels like.

Same Old Song & Dance

Posted on Tue, Nov. 24, 2015 at 10:25 pm

MIL & SFIL live across the street from SFIL's family. For the past 20 years it's been the same; MIL does not cook Thanksgiving dinner unless GSIL and her GFamily come in from another state. So they just go over to her IL's house. MIL never tells us ahead of time when the step family is having their dinner. She waits until Thanksgiving morning and starts ringing our phone off telling us we have this amount of time to get ready and get over there. This is after we go ahead and make plans with my family. For a few years we tried to compromise and rush over to the Step family and then come back to be with my family. It's ridiculous at the Step IL's house. It's a 2 bedroom home and about 50 ppl show up to eat. So your standing around, crowded, trying to make small talk with a bunch of lying, drug addict, theives who have been in and out of jail their whole life. It's very awkward.The past few years we have ignored MIL and join my family for dinner (because they always plan ahead of time and do everything around us). We are very important to my family and not so much to MIL. Every year MIL gets mad that we don't rush to her last minute plans. She has even came and butted in at my families house just to ruin our time. MIL jumped me one year and said "your always having dinners for your family but you never invite us". Why would I plan any dinner for MIL when she has never had 1 dinner for DH and I and our kids? MIL heard me say we would be having dinner with my fam this year but watch the witch pull the same crap again!! Until Christmas when the Goldens come in and MIL makes sure to tell us over and over that they will be here and what time she will be having dinner for them and what time we need to be there to be blessed with THEIR presence. I HATE MY INLAWS!And it makes me hate the holidays!

SIL princess

Posted on Tue, Nov. 24, 2015 at 10:04 pm

My SIL 'decides' who will do what for the holidays. Somehow this means we have to have her mother at our house year after year. She finally said her mom could stay with them this year. We made plans to finally have peace & quiet at home! Oops, she decided we have to take mom again. Well, this time I will tell 'mom' that she is staying at the SIL's house and will not tell the SIL, just leave on Xmas Eve. So obnoxious that we have to demand she pay attention to her own mother. Her mother spends all the other holidays with us already. Once a year too much?

SIL Cooked

Posted on Tue, Nov. 24, 2015 at 07:51 pm

MIL (the bitch) had her brother flying in from overseas for Christmas Eve.

She asked me to cook & bake. I made a traditional homemade holiday dinner & from scratch pastries and bread. All looked,tasted, and smelled amazing.

When it came time for dinner, all of us waiting for her to bring out the food I had spent all day cooking.

She comes out holding a salad (the kits you get in produce, open bag pour dressing & serve), and started bragging how her golden daughter had COOKED!!!!!

We asked where the rest of the food was? She said "She put it away".

One of many reasons why they are so hated.

I hate them

Posted on Tue, Nov. 24, 2015 at 05:18 pm

I can't say enough how much I can't stand these people. Sisters and crazy liars and his parents are selfish losers. It's a toxic family and every year they get together ONCE for the holidays and that's it. all they do is reminisce on the 2 memories they've have and pretend to be one big happy family when they all hate each other!!! I'm not phony and I tell it how it is but I've been doing this fake crap for too many years now I can't take it anymore!

I've gone overboard trying to be "part of the family" whatever family they may have and have gotten shit on! They left our wedding early WITHOUT SAYING GOODBYE!!!! They are the worst people I've ever met. How did I end up in this place?!

Nothing worse

Posted on Tue, Nov. 24, 2015 at 05:09 pm

Everybody hates that overbearing in-law but I have 4 who just don't care. Sisters call only when they need something and the parents never call. They've put me through hell and back when they should be grateful I took care of their child/sibling when all they cared about was themselves. They are all pathetic low life losers who thInk they're everything but they have no idea how sad and low they really are. Their names, faces, voices make me cringe and there's nothing more I want then to never have to see them again.

Don't know how to feel ... still angry

Posted on Tue, Nov. 24, 2015 at 03:52 pm

Why can some DHs be so invalidating of their wife's feelings when it comes to the ILS? To be fair, my DH isn't the worst of the worst when it comes to invalidation and not caring ... he has stood by me and admits that the ILs have been just awful to me and is finally coming bit by bit to terms with the fact that they weren't, and aren't, the best family to him since evil step-mil took over the reins. He has cut them all off for the most part, but every so often a shadow of insensitivity and invalidation of how I feel surfaces in him. For example, he'll make a very public, positive comment on FB regarding a picture his brother's wife posted about their kid even though he has no relationship with said child. While this might seem like nothing, given the context of the situation, that this woman was one of 3 wives that very intentionally tried to destroy my reputation within the family and my self-worth (mostly out of prejudice, jealously and discrimination that they will never admit to), and up to today is still somewhat of a hypocrite (and she's the 'best' one out of the 3), and further more, didn't give a rats ass how trying to destroy my self-worth and put me in my 'place' would impact my marriage and our CHILDREN, excuse me if I feel less than charitable about DH leaving nice little comments on her FB... she's the golden wife anyway and she has always had MORE than her fair share of attention. DH, ask your dumb brother to send you a pic of the niece you don't know if you're dying to comment instead of using a public forum to broadcast nice little nothings to someone who has hurt me, your wife, more than words can say. At least your brother and wife's kid(s) are still very much a part of that troubling family because unlike us, your brother and his wife were actually treated like family and certain boundaries were never crossed (but when it came to me, it seemed like these boundaries never factored in). Now after 3 years, DH might be staying over with this dumb brother in their small town just because he's too cheap to get a motel, and I don't know how to feel. Part of me is indifferent since me and my children don't have to go, but there's still a part of me that is apprehensive because I don't completely trust that he won't be chumming up to some of the wives (especially that one) who have been so mean to me and have never felt much remorse over it. I'm just so fed up with these people still being around on the perimeter after all of this time ... I can't be fully rid of them as long as I'm with DH and it always feels like a THEM vs. me dynamic which is really only a cover up so they don't have to face the fact of how fu@!ed up in the heads they all are.
