Re: Funeral Dilemma

Omg Ruby you have the best stories! It's so outrageous, you'd think it's something out of a funny sitcom :lol:

Re: Funeral Dilemma

I agree with the others. If you want to go simply to support your DH, then do so. Otherwise, just stay home and skip the drama. I already told my DH that I will not attend any funeral concerning his relatives. If he wants, he can do that alone. But I will say this, there is a petty part of me that c...

Re: DH vent

I agree with Miwako and I see this kind of behavior in my ESIL as well. I can see her becoming this kind of MIL and GM one day. These stories are extremely disheartening and I'm sorry you and your family are dealing with this. Something is wrong with your DH. He is obviously repeating a cycle he gre...

Re: Contemplating Blocking all IL’s on social media

Best thing I ever did was delete my social media and severing all ties with the ILs. I went under a fake name and kept that profile for years up until I decided to get rid of it altogether. Best thing I ever did and I have no desire to go back. Those I want to keep a connection with, I do through te...

Re: Felony Niece is pregnant, the rules are different for he

He looked at me in puzzlement, and it was apparent that he had forgotten the ugly situation that his mother had put him and me in. I reminded him of what MIL had said and he got irritated. I said that his irritation wasn't anything like what I felt when he had supported MIL over me and our DD. DH d...

Re: I have made a terrible mistake

This is a no-brainer. Don't go. Don't pretend to be ill. Just say no. The first time is hard but it gets easier with use. That 'no muscle' just needs developing- and what better time than when it's to get out of something really horrible? Don't argue with your husband, and don't negotiate. Just "No...

Re: NieceIL and DH text

Thank you Ruby. Do you think it was her parents’ influence? Oh for certain, yes. SIL has a lot of control over her DD. NIL has been taught that her family is exceptional and every outsider is wrong. You know, all of that typical narcissistic brainwashing mumbo jumbo. NIL is under the spell and doesn...

NieceIL and DH text

So the other day DH asks me to check something on his phone and lo and behold, there were texts between NieceIL and DH. I was under the impression that the text conversation had ended in November when NIL, out of the blue, asked DH and I to dinner (some of you may remember my last post about it. NIL...

Re: Should I be bothered?

I think your feelings are justified but I'm wondering if these two friends have any clue about how they're making you feel. They probably don't realize that their friendship and behavior are having an impact on you. Sometimes people can be clueless like that. So I don't think you should hold it agai...

Re: The Abuser is My SIL...

Oh there's no doubt that this poor child is trapped in a highly abusive environment. PMILIHP is right, your hands are tied here. I know it's extremely frustrating but the only ones who have any control in this situation would be CPS and they'll likely not do anything as long as she's being fed and t...

Re: My Daughter’s MIL

This makes me wonder if your DD's ILs are dealing with a financial issue? Maybe they don't wish to speak on it? Have you ever gotten a vibe from the MIL that she dislikes you or your family? Maybe I am the strange one but I wouldn't want to have my FOO and DH FOO celebrating Christmas together. Soun...

Re: To the Poster of "Naughty Bride Episode One"

You were naïve enough to think that marrying into this situation would change anything for the better I think this is exactly what happened. I think it happens to most people though. They somehow think things will change after the marriage and when it doesn't, they are sorely disappointed and reali...

Re: Advice

Welcome to the forum Bianca :) Your DH sounds like a nice and loyal guy. And on the downside, he's nice and loyal to his paaaaaaaarents to the fault that selfish MIL and probably FIL (an enabler? Mine is!) has been able to train him. I relate, and have managed to make things better, but it took year...

Re: Odd Neighbor Advice

Unfortunately, I don't see her moving anytime soon. (Our neighbors, were finally ousted after not paying taxes for 20+ years).
They never leave do they? Every single nightmare neighbor I've had remained there for 10+ years. These psycho types hate moving! It's terrible.
