Why Cant mother in laws back off. Why do they need to tell you how to live your life. They tell you what to do and what not to do. My mother in law gets upset when my family gets invited to my step daughters birthday parties!!! Is she in the right wtih being upset?

absolutly not. She has no right to be angry at you for that. She should be pleased that your family loves her grandchild so much that they would be willing to come and celebrate her birthdya with her. Birthday parties are for the children, not the relatives. If your step daughter wants them there, then they should be.

I come from a blended family as wellso grew up dealing with these issues, and now that i am an adult, my mom and stepfather divorced and I get to deal with it again cause i refused to cut him and his family out of my life. Stay strong. You are doing the right thing. It is better to be over loved than not enough.

No she has no right 2 get upset i think! I come from a broken family and there is nothing worse than feeling like the odd child that gets left out coz parents have a new family! All the kida should be treated the same! I know from experience and would of loved to be a part of my dads new family!
