My Husband's aunt made a comment, though it may be true, I feel it was rude in nature. After a nice family dinner she says to me. "Just so you know, we will always love Joaquin (my son) more than you." I was so dumbfounded. I couldn't even respond, I wanted to say something like 'ditto' but I just kept walking and ignored the rest of her nonsense, my husband didn't say anything on my behalf either.
My husband and I are from different cultures, that's the only explanation I have for myself on why she made that comment. I feel she goes out of her way to be rude to me. I'm not sure how I will react or what to say when I see her next. I am a person who ignores negativity but I will not let her walk all over me. What would you do in my situation, should I say something when I see her again or should I just be happy that she clarified that she loves my son more?
