I Hate My Inlaws!

Letter to my ex in-laws

Hey Dipshits,

You won. I left your golden boy; now he's all yours. The boundaries that kept you from trampling him are gone. So is everything else that was mine.

This leaves you with a TON of reprogramming work to do on him, I know. My 8-year marriage meant there were 8 years where you were not the top dog. I like to think he got some enjoyment out of his few years off from your tyranny.

But at what cost? He's such a spineless servant, and to so many masters. He always had to be under someone's control. But he likes to secretly deviate--it excites him, avoiding you. But somehow he never dared to do that without being 'forced' to by one of his wives. He needed a wife to escape your tyranny but that meant he was tyrannized by his wives. Including myself.

For those of us who *don't* get off on subjecting other humans to relentless guilt trips and manipulations, it's a terrible chore to be the sole guardian of all the personal boundaries and privacy in a household.

I'm glad I don't have to do that anymore.

I've unhooked him and tossed him right back in the water for you to scoop up. And don't worry, I checked him out first and it does not appear that he's grown a pair.

Enjoy your win! You fought valiantly! I am actually impressed with your might. While I did not possess the fortitude to defeat you, I walk away with my head high because I know I did everything I could to make a happy home with this person you raised.

Also a few weeks after filing for divorce I met someone who changed my life for the (extreme) better. In your efforts to destroy the life I was trying to create you set me free to find someone worth loving.

I'll let you get back to your hatred and gaslighting now.
