My son (18) met a girl and 3 months later moved in with her. We tried to talk him out of it but obviously failed. We had a very strong family unit and now it's starting to crumble. I am one of 6 girls and one of my sisters was verbally abusing my daughter. Needless to say we don't have a relationship with her anymore. one night we were at my other sisters house for Easter and my sons girlfriend and my close sister got in a heated argument. My sons girlfriend hates me now b/c she feels j should have came to her defence. Maybe I should have? Now my sons girlfriend is very close with the sister that we don't have a relationship with and spends a ton of time together. I have heard through the grapevine that they talk badly about me. So my 50 yr old sister is fuelling the negative. I am trying to keep a relationship with my son and his girlfriend but it's extremely hard b/c the girlfriend has been very rude to me. And now when they come over she barely talks to me and i feel like a prisoner in my own home. :(. Mother's Day came and I was speaking with a therapist to get help and she recommended I ask for just his "time" alone to build on our relationship. He was sooooo mad st me for asking for time alone that I got "NOTHING" for mothers day. But his girlfriend made a point to go on social media and Praise the sister that verbally abused my daughter. I feel disappointed that my son hangs out at the one person that abused his sister, abused me. And now I have to take abuse from his Gfriend. :(. I cry at the drop of a hat now when I think of the mess..,and my husband has done NOTHING. He sits there when the girlfriend is rude to me and says nothing. It's been months now and I resent him for not sticking up for me. I am the only one defending myself. :(. I guess I am asking how to deal with the girlfriend, my husband, and my son.
