Yup. A guy here.
I was googling to find out solutions to cure a relationship issues between wife's mom and son in law. I couldn't find any. So probably this is rare.
As this is quite a forum for women, I need your help.
My mom-in-law was a divorcee who got remarried to my current step dad-in-law.
I came to know about her relationship details only after I got married to her daughter. Yup my wife has been through the trauma of not being with her dad during her growing years. I love her and try to fill up the gaps now anyways, but her mom, who is quite a bit of an arrogant woman, does not impress me at all.
She is loud. She is arrogant. She stops talking and visiting us out of nowhere for reasons I don't even know. And shamelessly expects her kids (us) who are half of her age to act mature and go solve this ridiculous situation.
I, being a man, have cried silently so many times not knowing what to do. I come from a traumatic past as well. My dad secretly remarried another woman which later was found out by mom and community leading to heavy pressures.
I'm lost as a son and a son-in-law. My sister in law recently got married which has made things worse as the new boy at home is being favorited leaving me like a piece of sh** despite of me trying to be normal, myself and nuetral towards my in laws.
