I absolutely hate inlaws from guy's point of view

Posted on Wed, Jan. 20, 2021 at 05:28 pm

A lot of the submissions here are probably from a woman's point of view, but a guy's inlaws could be as toxic, actually more toxic than the woman's inlaws. Guys suffer a lot mentally and emotionally and feel cornered out by his inlaws. Nobody supports him. The woman whom he considers to be his wife, gangs up with her parents and siblings and they together make the guy's life a living hell. The guy basically becomes a doormat to them, they stomp over him, use himand abuse him continuously. He basically becomes their slave and has to do everything they say, but they will never listen to or care what he says or feels. The husband/son-in-law/brother-in-law has no respect or value. He is thrown around and abused, and he feels like a soccer ball. If he dares utters something out of a broken heart to simply beg for basic respect, he is shut down, taunted, yelled at, verbally abused and insulted. The wife, wife's parents and siblings all gang up on him. It becomes so worse that he starts hating his life, himself and doesn't wanna come home. He dreads having to come home at the end of the day after work is over. She fights, argues and insults the guy's parents, but the guy is fully expected to respect and honor the wife's parents. Never, ever, ever get married in this day and age. It is absolutely the worst mistake you will make. The amount of depression you will go through as a guy is indescribable. It is beyond words. I hate my life, i hate my sister in law, father in law, i despise my mothrr in law and brother in law. They all control me and I can't take it anymore. I don't know what to do. This is mental torture and I don't know what to do. There is no solution when your own wife doesn't wanna listen to you or doesn't care about what you have to say. A marriage can only work if both husband and wife are willing to respect and listen to ewch other, if one partner overpowers and dominates the other person, that it is a compromise and not a relationship or a marriage, it is a compromise to the ugly and horrible situation.

Tired of Your Constant BS

Posted on Wed, Jan. 20, 2021 at 09:15 am

Hey FIL...I am growing tired of your constant BS. You constantly complain about your "ailments", when the truth is you're a hypochondriac. You expect everyone to feel sorry for you yet when I had major surgery you never came to see me in the hospital or asked how I was doing. When my grandmother died you didn't even come to her funeral, yet you talk about how much you liked her. You always talk about me behind my back thinking that no one will tell me what you have said. Oh and thanks for trying to turn other family members against me by telling them all your lies. Some of them actually believe you, which is really sad but others have figured out your stupid lies. It's no wonder that I don't want to come around you anymore. Luckily your son has figured out that if I don't I am a much happier person, so he let's me stay home when he goes to see you. I honest wish that you would just go away for good.

Evil and Ugly MIL & SIL

Posted on Mon, Jan. 18, 2021 at 06:53 pm

I forgave you for a lot of petty things you've done over the years to intentionally try to get a rise out of me, dear MIL. I understand you don't know me very well, but you could have made an effort to be loving and kind, just as MY MOTHER and I have been towards you and your daughter, the SIL.

Jealousy is a very ugly trait to have. What I can never forgive you for is how you allowed your daughter to send me a disrespectful, insulting message based on nasty, ugly, rumors you've started about me and my mother over the years. You lied and told your daughter that I was bullying you because you felt self-conscious about that self-help book you sent to me for my baby-shower. Everyone told you that was a bad idea, and still, I let it go. You've never even spoke to your son about anything you may have been worried about concerning the relationship between you and I. When your daughter sent me that message, it was brought to your attention and you pretended to not know anything about it.

How dare you get upset with my response to her? Was I supposed to allow myself to be disrespected by the two of you without reason? That's too bad. You're lucky I didn't direct my response to you, since you were the one who started the rumors to begin with. And then to add icing on top of the cake, you called your son and asked him about why I responded to your daughter's mean-spirited message. I told him to put the phone on speaker so I can answer your question (the answer being because she sent me a nasty message), to which you replied "I'M NOT TALKING TO YOU! I'M TALKING TO [MY SON]!"

I'm not afraid of you... The nerve of you to talk to me like that. You had ample time to talk to your son about the message that was sent to me when you FIRST knew about it. Your response to me proves just how guilty you really are about the things you've said and done. You encouraged the division, and I'm not going to allow you to continue to disrespect me. I want ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with you. You mean nothing to me!

Boundaries might have saved us

Posted on Sat, Jan. 16, 2021 at 11:02 am

I know that you are not a horrible person. You seem to have morals. You love your son and your grandchildren very much. But you were not a great mother in law. You claimed that you loved me but your words and actions toward me were often unkind. You showed little respect for me as the woman of my house and wife of your son. You tried to take over the menu when I invited you for gatherings. You criticized the way I wore my hair and made insinuations about my weight. I often didn't even recoginize it as criticism because it was often indirect and said in a sweet voice. When I confronted yo I about these things you either didn't bother to listen or became indignant and angry and told me I was too sensitive or that you had done nothing wrong. I lost my temper and said horrible things and that was not ok. I apologized the 2 times I lost my temper and admitted to my part of the problem of not being assertive sooner and not using the best approach. Instead of admitting to your part in it both times you belittled me for my part. Perhaps if I had had firm and unchanging boundaries about my home and about not allowing criticism things would have been better. They would have at least been better for me even if you didn't like it. At least then when I tried to talk to you I wouldn't have been so angry. I won't apologize for my feelings. I have valid reasons for feeling the way I do. Its excusable to have a negative thought about your daughter in law. Its forgivable to occasionally criticize someone if you apologize when confronted. But the criticism wasn't occasional and you never owned up to it. You said sorry without saying why or you said sorry for causing me pain and that yo I never meant to. At this point there are just too many bad feelings and your response to me telling you my feelings only caused me to have worse feelings. You say you care but I just don't see it

the pros of covid

Posted on Fri, Jan. 15, 2021 at 04:32 pm

i don't have to see my MIL and FIL and my son doesn't know who they are.

they keep calling to lecture my husband who doesn't call them back but also won't admit that he doesn't enjoy being around them. he is in counseling and trying to learn to stand up to them. then FIL decided to start a fight after i said, "ill let you know when we want your opinion". it was so satisfying to say that and it was like lighting a firecracker.

I'm just so grateful that covid has kept them away. we socially distanced at a park and it was hilarious to watch kids keep coming up to their dog that they never leave home. (they wouldnt even leave their previous dog home when it would attack our dog. i was kind of happy when their dog died. and also happy that my dog pooped on their fancy carpets lol.)

but anyway, FIL doesn't ever listen when we say "No" so it was delightful to watch kids disregarding his opinion constantly for an extended period of time. he is probably one of those old white rapist men who doesn't stop when women back away. he kept almost touching my breast when i was holding my son and wouldnt stop. so yeah, they are privileged ass holes who haven't ever been told they can't have what they want until now. I'm pleased to give them that experience, but would love if they just vanished instead.

i love that my son doesn't know who they are and won't talk when FIL comes on zoom.

they feel like they aren't in our lives and I'm so glad they are getting the message. i know they cry and it makes me soooo happy. my husband wants them in our lives and I'm just trying to figure out all of the ways to keep them out. covid helps so much.

they are blocked on my phone right now because i don't want to be tempted to respond to these privileged assholes while DH is (slowly) formulating a response to them. but when they are back, I'm going to start making sure every picture they get has DS playing with his other grandparents (who he loves dearly). i know it will make them cry.

MIL got sick during covid and i was so disappointed when she got better. common covid, you could've given me that.

God, my MIL is a spoiled brat. she got the vaccine and is bragging to my family (that also needs vaccine). she thinks that everyone should be happy for her privilege. she is such a passive aggressive bitch who stands up for her sexist husband. i relish the fact that she doesn't get to see my son and that she cries at night. she tries to drive a wedge in my marriage and it causes so many fights. the best part is knowing that she is so unhappy. i love that my FIL is unhappy too. he is an old, white, male, lawyer who talks over everyone he ever meets. he doesn't like to see his wife clean, so she does it when he's out of town. she is super weak and doesn't say a thing. she plays super ditzy which is really unattractive on a 65 yr old--like she thinks it makes her likable. i have zero respect for someone like that. i hope that they have all of the bad things happen to them because so far, they've faced zero hardships and think everyone should be happy for them in their giant house with all the money, taking risks in the pandemic that put other people at risk. those are the people who deserve to get sick, not the people who are forced to work because they don't have the fucking privilege. i sure hope that karma hits them harder in this life, because it makes me so happy to imagine them suffering.

Old Ass ungrateful waste

Posted on Thu, Jan. 14, 2021 at 05:29 pm

I absolutely cannot stand you! You had me fooled for the first 6 years. Then you came running and begging to move in to get out of a terrible relationship.

We let you move in, but discussed the rules of our home beforehand. You have turned into a living nightmare. You spill shit on our carpets, then cover it up with a rug. You refuse to clean behind yourself. You spend all of your money on stupid shit and have nothing to show for it. You are a liar and manipulator. I have seen through your bullshit and have had it. I can't even stand the sight of you.

I want you out of my GD house. I couldn't care less if you never speak to me again as long as you move out. The only reason I have even remotely bitten my tongue is because I don't want my husband hurt. However, it is almost to the point that I am going to say what I need to say and live with the consequences of my actions.

Everything you have told us has been a lie. You are a narcissistic bitch that doesn't care about anyone but your self. You want to be seen as the perfect person, but in reality you are nothing but a self centered bitch.

I don't care if you have to live in your car, I don't care if they come and repo your car and put you out on the street. Once I finally get you out of the house, it will be over my dead body before you EVER live here again. In case I haven't been clear, I effing hate you and never want to see your sorry excuse for a human being ever again! Kick rocks and rot!!!

Political Piggies

Posted on Wed, Jan. 13, 2021 at 02:41 am

Not so dear in-laws even if you didn’t treat me like an outsider I would still not want to have anything to do with you. Reposting Conspiracy theories on social media. One even wrote in her Christmas card to us she hopes the “election is overturned so we can get our country back “. Oh sis don’t you realize America is more than just one man.
