My wife and I have been married for 7 years and have two beautiful children together. We have had our share of problems, but here lately, we have been getting along great. I knew it was just a matter of time before all of the happiness would become interrupted. It is a long story, but my wife's mother hates me, and though I don't like to use the word "hate", I can almost say the feeling is mutual. The reason why she hates me is because back in 2001, I co-signed for her to get a loan. It was a $1,200 loan, and the payments were only $52 a month. I was a fool to do so because she has horrible credit and is almost at the point of bankruptcy. As I expected, she made only 3 payments and stopped, so the loan company came back on me, so to save my credit, I paid the loan off. I tried to keep peace, as her actions really hurt my wife, her daughter. I told my wife that I would never have her dis-own her mother, but that I was very angry at her mom, and did not want her around me. My wife would still go see her and talk to her, but a short time later, her mother literally stole another $700 from us, through the bank of all places. The bank got in a huge amount of trouble because of this, and had to make things right with my wife and I. They were going to bring criminal charges on my wife's mother, but again for the sake of my wife who was now just an emotional wreck, I worked out something with the bank and the authorities, resulting in no charges being filed against my mil. Well last year, her mother wanted to talk to me. I agreed to meet with her. She apologized and handed me $700 cash and promised to pay me the rest soon after. She did, and I forgave her yet again, but I still don't trust her and I certainly don't like her. I told all of this to show you why now I have a major problem with what my wife has just done. We have had plans now for about 2 weeks, to take my sons to a place out of town where they have a large display of Christmas lights. My boys love to look at Christmas lights. Well my wife informed me that she has asked her mother to go with us, and she is going. I am pissed! For the sake of my children, and for the sake of my marriage, I am trying to "accept" it and just go along. But I just know that me driving down the road for 2 hours with the devil in our car, is going to boil me up in rage. Am I wrong to feel like my wife has done me wrong by inviting her mother without even talking to me about it first?
