I am not one to put my dirty laundry out there but I need to vent to someone. My husband and I have been at each other for a few days over his parents. My husband has a sister and to sum it up as much as possible, our family is dirt under his parents feet when it comes to her and her kids. I have watched them treat my husband like crud for 10 years and they do the same to my kids and I have hit my breaking point and no longer want to make an attempt with them. My husband understands but won't see his family without me. I don't want to be the reason he doesn't see them but I also can't watch what goes on any longer. And the fact that my husband acts like everything is a garden of roses when he is around them drives me up the wall. What is it going to take for him to put his foot down with them and stand up for us? I just can't stand back and condone it any longer so now I am the bad guy?

    no your not a bad guy, I am always saying stuff to my husband about his family, mainly his sister, we both had a child in January, mine the 1st and hers the 13th, Every time I post something on face book about the baby or even one of my other 2 she has to post something with in a few mins of it so that hers is seen first or so that mine is not seen by any. When we go to sunday lunch, no one talks to us unless we talk to them. I have time and time again said something to him, and I have given him a fare warning that one of these days I am going to blow my top, but no you are not the bad guy.

      I'm sorry. I really don't have any advice. I get along well enough with my in-laws but would rather not be around them for a variety of reasons, most of which is negativity. :(

        He won't! That's the problem. I will but it won't end well so out of respect for him I keep my distance. Him not speaking up is why we aren't really getting along. It just makes me feel like the kids and I aren't worth it and it's acceptable in his eyes for what goes on.
