I Hate My Inlaws!

MIL is destryong my marriage

We live separately from MIL but we might as well be in the same house, what with how she is taking my husband away from me.

Hubby calls her more than once a day, EVERYDAY.

I tell myself it's ok because MIL lives alone (separated from FIL) but it's become more and more clear that he loves his mother more than he loves me, if he even does.

There are many days where he would either give me the silent treatment, or would respond to me but would be very irritated. Yet when he calls his mom, you can literally hear the happiness in his voice.

MIL is very needy and helpless without my husband. She knows that one call from her and my husband will drop everything... and she calls my husband for the very littlest things.

My husband and I have grown further apart. I believe it is because he is occupied with thoughts and concerns for his mom, and has forgotten that he has a wife who needs his care too. I am low maintenance and I don't need much, but why is he so caring to his mom and his sister but cannot be bothered to ask me how my day is.

I'm sure he knows how to show that he cares - he calls his mom more than once a day only to ask how she is, if she has eaten meals, or to ask for latest gossip about their neighbors. The first thing he does when he wakes up is call his mother... and he can't even be bothered to look at me when I say goodbye when I leave to go to the office.

Intimacy has been out the window for years. How can I even think about that when I know he only has thoughts and concerns about his mom in his head.

I miss my husband. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if I had married an orphan.
