I am married (I have two kids) few months ago and my mother in law and my husband ex (of 10 years and have a kid together) is very close to her. My husband tell his mom everything and she shares with his ex who’s our neighbor and she comes asking questions about it or try to discuss it like she’s being friendly and she later changes the story about what I said, and she’ll say add things like he’s a bad guy and cheated and tells me to be careful with him etc... I try to explain to my husband but he says I complain about stupid things, I know there’s nothing between them but they text a lot, and she shows up to our house, they talk in the drive way for long, joke. at his parents they have photos of hers but not of me and him although we are married(they have pictures of my boys though). My mother in law is nice to me but the gossiping with her ex daughter in law is too much and each time I have an argument with my husband she suggest him to start divorce procedures and each time we are together my mother in law at least once talk about the ex, and now at family dinners she’s always there and they talk about things I have no idea of, it’s so uncomfortable . Am I really complaining about stupid things ? Everyone says am overreacting about complaining, am I really? Please advice am confused

These were moments-in-time, and not a repetitive pattern. But, these moments-in-time made me distrust him. As a result, I was not close to him. During the funeral, I heard many people talk warmly about my...
