For all of your Mothers-in-law out there, this is not meant to be an attack on you! I could really use some support/advice.
My husband and I have been together for a month shy of 7 years. He moved out of his parents' house while we were dating. During that time, I had to FORCE him to do things with his family! Whenever they would have get-togethers he never wanted to go, but I convinced him we should go-that kind of stuff. Fast forward to two years ago; we moved in with his parents. We were only supposed to stay 6 months. Two years later, we finally moved out! His parents were great in so many ways, and they never really complained about us being there. Anyway, my problem isn't all of the awesome stuff his parents have done for us. My problem is for the past seven years I am always getting "blamed" for everything by his mom! Everytime my husband doesn't want to do things with his family it is somehow my fault, yet for the past seven years, I have been the one telling him we needed to do stuff with them! Does anyone else have this problem? I try to just let it go, but I'm so tired of having to be "the better person" and all of that nonsense! Additionally, it doesn't matter what my husband or I say, she STILL blames me!
Thanks for reading, Ladies!
