Don't be a doormat. People generally don't respect people that don't respect themselves. So, if you let someone walk all over you, even if they pretend to like you they don't respect you.

Have you talked to her about why it seems you two don't get along? Is there something specific she has mentioned that you do that bother's her? If you can't get her to open up and discuss it, then stop trying so hard. If she doesn't like you, that's her problem. You can't please everyone. Continue to be there for your son. Be nice to her, but don't go out of your way.

Stop being a doormat. You are not accomplishing anything. If his wife dislikes you, its her loss. Spend time with your son, enjoy that time. Treat your dil cordially, politely, but formal polite.
