HELP NEED ADVISE
So my mother and my husband have a history of not getting along...we were doing good for a while and then at Thanksgiving my mother said something childish and complained the whole time..so we had yet again another falling out...well she is coming to town next week for 3 days...my husband said he will be cordial to her, but if she says anything out of line he is going to rip her a new one and basically throw her out....so this visit could go well or it could go horribly...I have A LOT of anxiety about this visit...what should I do....call it off? or just see how things go? I thought about calling my mom and telling her to "act normal" but how do you ask someone to be normal? it shouldn't be this hard
Some of my family have not always been nice to my husband but I set ground rules with them as well. If they can't be nice and be mature, they can't be around. Any questions about our personal life is off limits, any opinion they have of our parenting skills or our spouse is off limits, past mistakes or relationships are off limits...it really has worked out so well.
