Article about Empathy & Men

https://www.livescience.com/61987-empathy-women-men.html I found this interesting. Apparently studies show that men lack less empathy than women. Speaking for myself, I have seen this in just about every man I've ever known and have read plenty about it on this forum. It explains a lot about what o...

Re: Hi new to this, need opinion and advice

When the ILs die, that will only be a symptom of the problem relieved. The real problem is the husband and his nonchalant attitude about people dumping all over his wife. That attitude will still be there even though the ILs are gone. HE is the source of the problem. This is true because if it isn'...

Re: Hi new to this, need opinion and advice

DH says it's a long time, water under the bridge but I feel I want closure and feel I was treated very unfairly and i'm angry my husband couldn't stand up for me. Well that's easy for him to say right? He wasn't the one who was lied about and bullied, you were. His lack of empathy towards you is re...

Re: To the poster of “It’s getting worse”

These stories are so rare. The guy actually took charge and handled the situation himself. Good on him! Mamarama is right, this is the guy she needs to marry. Every time I read a story about a potential future spouse who isn't standing up to their toxic family, I yell "RUN!" in my head. Many of us h...

Re: Need Helpful Advice! Please and Thank you!

Very wise advice to give yourself. A child's needs are the number one priority. You don't want her picking up on that toxicity and possibly repeating it herself someday. My parents kept us away from my dad's side and I understood this when I hit into my mid to late teens. A few years ago I reunited ...

Re: Married 5 months, and I resent my husband. :(

I was going to have a small wedding party but the ILs ruined that for me so I cancelled it. ESIL tried to ruin my engagement so I understand how these memories are tainted for you now. My DH didn't listen to me back then either. It was hard. I think your wounds are too fresh and you are dealing with...

Re: Hi, I'm back... and here's an update

Welcome back! Sorry about your stupid ILs but I'm glad you're doing well and so is your business and GC. I really hope your FIL is lying about being close to 100. I can't imagine my ILs living for that long, what a nightmare! The hell he has brought on earth throughout all of those years. It's time ...

Re: NieceIL wants to meet up

Plus she never reached out before bumping into him, why the sudden urge to connect? You're right. I didn't even think of that. We haven't heard from her in years. She also didn't text me but told DH she wanted to have dinner with us both. It's possible the ILs implanted the idea in her head when sh...

Re: Need Helpful Advice! Please and Thank you!

Welcome rdavis3! Sorry you ended up here like the rest of us. Hopefully you will find our support and advice helpful. Sounds to me like both of your DH's parents are abusive. FIL is neglectful and troublesome. Not worth your time and effort. He actually behaves a lot like my narcissistic ILs. Always...

Re: Less that half listening and zero empathy

I hope you and everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! I've heard of people having hallucinations and weird anxiety attacks with weed but I don't know if there was anything "extra" in it. I hate pot so I don't know much about it personally. I only know what people have told me. Like WOW, I think it's also...

Re: DH says he wants "fair"...

Do I assert myself for Christmas? Do I commit to an hour at the IL’s and take a separate car? Do I cave to his definition of fair? You needed to assert yourself 6.5 years ago. You're allowing your DH too much slack here. Girl, do not let this one go! Your DH is making demands he has no right to mak...

Re: Not sure whether to be happy or feel like I've been thro

LIE! Great big lie! Now BIl's family is ALWAYS busy for EVERYTHING we've invited them too because of "sports". Should I be happy about this, or did he just throw me under the bus, lol? I used to hate when my DH did stuff like this but it won't matter because regardless of what your DH says, they wi...

Re: NieceIL wants to meet up

If your NIL is that nice, she may also be nice to THEM, and so unwittingly become a FM Yes, this is my biggest concern. She doesn't realize that there is something wrong with her family. They tell her they are perfect and she believes them because she doesn't see the underhanded things that go on. ...
