Marriage and in-laws

By AlysMommy October 29, 2012 - 9:28am

My husband and I have been married for almost 3 years and been together almost 4 years. His parents are getting a divorce (his mom wants out, his dad doesn't) and it made me start doubting my relationship. But it has made us stronger lately. Anyways his mom sends a text to him everyday saying have a great day and whatnot and wants us to travel to her (which is only a 30min drive) to hang out but she passes from one town where she works to the town she is staying(she is staying with her dad) and we are only 10 mins from the town she works at. She says things about how my kids have forgotten her but she is the one not coming around. And completely ignores me now when we used to be close. How do I cope with this and keep my mouth shut where I don't speak whats on my mind?

Hi AlysMommy

Thanks for your post!

Why would your in-laws divorce make you question your own marriage?

Your mother in law is probably going through a very hard time right now, and feeling out of sorts. Be very supportive of her - especially since you used to get along very well - and when you talk to her, remind her of how welcome she is at your home and make a special effort for her to see the grandkids. I know it may be frustrating but don't fan any flames. If anyone should be talking to her it's your husband. He is her son - and he should be the one reaching out.

Best,

Susan
