Re: Happy 2020! Trying to start my New Year right...advice?

rdavis3- You told your FIL how you feel, your DH asked him why he wasn't making any effort and you haven't gotten any adequate response from your FIL. It appears that he doesn't care, he just wants to be able to say that he has a relationship with his GD and he's not going to budge about trying to w...

Re: Another generation is born into the toxic ILs

Oh yes, I'm staying away from that mess... 2200 miles away. I can practically hear the screaming over here despite the distance. It's got to be absolute hell in that household. FN has posted some photos of the baby on social media and they strike me as peculiar. The baby does not have her eyes open ...

Re: Another generation is born into the toxic ILs

RubyCrownedKinglet- Wow, you're good with predictions! I heard from Nice-SIL today that FN has been begging her father/my Pervert-BIL to pay for a nice apartment for her, the baby and the bf. Pervert-BIL went back to work just to pay for all the things that FN is demanding. You were great with your ...

Another generation is born into the toxic ILs

Felony-Niece had her baby a few weeks ago, at taxpayer's expense. She is milking the government with the help of her mother/my Golden SIL, who has enrolled FN in all sorts of gimme programs. FN has never held a job more than 6 weeks, and partied constantly ever since she was 14. Even though FN has a...

Re: Cut MIL out of my life.

You have every right to be upset. Your life is none of her business. Your MIL is insensitive about your baby and she's clinging to her baby boy who should be a grown man. She's enabling his behavior and alcoholism. If you ever see her again, resist the temptation to tell her anything about your pers...

Re: Christmas Eve nightmare or just a usual visit ?

Welcome to the forum! If your DH wants to see his family, encourage him to go... without you or your children. Don't let him take your kids to see them without you being there to protect them. Find a time when you and your DH are in good moods and tell him one or two of your concerns regarding his f...

Re: Christmas Gifts

I'm weighing in on this kind of late, but wanted to say that looking back on my experiences with extended family, I remember how I felt, not necessarily what they gave me. I had serious aunts, nice aunts, mean aunts and fun aunts.... and the best memories were how they all (even the mean one, to som...

RubyCrownedKinglet- Thank you for the update. You've always been concerned about Eddie and I can sense the relief in your post. For us who have been on this site for awhile, we have seen quite a few stories unfolding over the years and Eddie's compelling story is one if them. I hope that he continue...

Re: Update on my Golden SIL

Jigglypuff- Thank you for your thoughtful reply. Yes, GSIL is on medications, lots of them. She is a hypochondriac and also has inherited MIL's diagnosed mental disease. I would have been more sympathetic over the years if I had known that MIL and GSIL had these issues, and if they had been honest a...

Update on my Golden SIL

Golden SIL called my DH recently, angry that he hadn't called her on her birthday or sent her a gift. She told DH that he "needs" to call her on her birthday. :shock: DH pointed out that he had texted her in the middle of a busy workday. In truth, he didn't really want to talk to her because she had...

Re: BIL Hits One Outta the Park

RubyCrownedKinglet, thank you for explaining how to post quotes! All these years here, and I've never figured it out! SonOutLaw- It's a mystery why ILs treat some of us so badly while favoring people who don't seem to deserve it. It makes me wonder which comes first, the Golden Ones or the hypocriti...

Re: Hoping DH doesn't fall for the lovebombing - AGAIN

If your MIL is the kind of person who shows up late to events, you could try to minimize contact with her by going early and leaving soon after because you have somewhere else to be (prepared by you in advance... at the least it could be going to a particular movie showing). I suppose you could just...

Hello Whydoineedaname, and welcome! I'm sorry that your BIL has a drinking problem that is affecting your DH's family and I hope that it doesn't happen again. You didn't ask for suggestions, but I would like to offer a few: 1. Install security cameras around your property. They could even be night i...

Welcome to the forum, Not_a_minion! You wrote your story beautifully, and it's essence is so similar to many peoples' experiences here, including mine. I'm glad that your DH figured things out before it destroyed your love for him, hurt your children and ruined your marriage. The key was that he sto...
