I got married three years ago and at the time, my in-laws all practically praised me and were SO happy I "replaced" my husband's ex. Well, for some reason they gradually started loving her. They have pictures of her on their wall, they comment on everything on her facebook, and my sisters in law call her part of the family.
My father in law insists on watching her new baby who has no relation to my husband. I feel making her a part of the family is crossing a boundary.
Every time I visit I have to hear about the ex or watch them have a conversation for half hour right in front of me. It's causing me to be very resentful and not want to be at their house.
I'm desperate for some advice! It almost led my husband and I to a divorce last year because I was so hurt that they loved her despite how I felt, and he would just defend them. My husband is cordial with his ex and does not talk to her unless it is about their child, which I am completely fine with. My husband just lets it go that they love her so much. Do you think I should do the same? Or does it make sense that I want nothing to do with them??
