My husband is an only child. His mom is over bearing. I have learned to live with it and get out of the way when she is around. Although it has bit me in the butt and I get critisied for being lazy and not a good mother. She calls my husband over 3 times a day and talks to him between 1 - 1 1/2 hours daily. Our oldest child found out about the situation. I am not saying that it is right that she did, but I wasn't suprised with all the fighting. I mean she came up and took the kids away for about 2 weeks- not letting me talk to them except on 2 occassions 1 being my sons birthday. I later sent them to my parents house when I felt I was having a nervous breakdown. The problem is that she says that my husband did this to me not our children. How can that be. Our getting a divorce affects our children. Yes he cheated on me but in doing so he choose to potentially destroy our family. Right? They tell my husband what to do. How to do it in terms of putting me back under his thumb. They turn his attention towards my reaction of the affairs instead of what he did and trying to repair our marriage. I don't know what to do. How to get them out of our lives inorder to give us a chance to work it out. They say that I am unreasonable, selfish. I tried to make restrictions to 20 min. calls everyother week then to just 20 mins. a week. They wouldn't even try and turn it against that against me to. My husband says he wants to work it out but I am feeling like I don't care anymore. That staying means nothing will ever change. He'll just hide the affairs better, not make the same mistakes twice. His parant ok it. He didn't do anything really wrong and would be better off with a perfect wife like his mom. Does anyones else have inlaw problems that play into the affair.
