I Hate My Inlaws!

Selfish mother in law

Posted on Tue, Aug. 08, 2017 at 02:47 pm

My husband is an only child. He comes from a poor family but he has worked very hard and now he has a very good job. He supports his mother entirely, even though she has her retirement fund.

He bought her a house, pays all her bills and he even gives her money for groceries. She uses her money only for her things, go to the mall, etc.

We never receive anything from her, not even a birthday or christmas present, even though she has the money and buys things for herself.

I am not angry at my husband because he has a very kind heart, and he never denies me anything. He gives me everything that I want.
I also have a job which we use only for savings and for vacation. My husband's entire salary is spent on our house and on his mother's.

I just wish we could work less, and have more savings for the future instead of supporting her. Or I wish she could at least pay some of her bills.

I really hate the way my mother in law is. How selfish she is, and how she assumes it is my husband's responsibility to sustain her economically. Also, she only talks about money with him, or at least that is the way I see it. And whenever she remodels the house or does anything, she asks my husband for the money.

When we go out with her ,she assumes we have to pay for everything, she never even reaches for her purse when the check comes in a restaurant.

I don't know how to stop feeling this way. I have tried to understand, but my family is entirely different.

I want to know how to feel the fun for hating my mother in law! I just feel anger whenever I think about her.
Thanks
