Oh my

Posted on Sun, Mar. 12, 2023 at 10:51 am

I would describe the husband’s relatives situation as an angry hornets nest.

They like to sting others and staying away from them is for the best.

One cannot change the fact that hornets sting.

Accept them for who they are, stay away from them, and don’t react or explain. The act of keeping it simple and being boring for hornets.

Where did it go?

Posted on Thu, Mar. 09, 2023 at 02:21 am

Funny thing sister of my husband, when you stalk him on his phone by text, the messages get deleted.

I wonder who could be doing this?

Yes, me.

Find a boyfriend, make friends, or get a roommate

Leave him alone. We are moving far away to get away from his sister!

She seems to be in love with him!

MIL dead but still torments me

Posted on Wed, Mar. 08, 2023 at 02:57 am

My mother in law is dead but she still lives rent Free in my head and causes conflict in my marriage. it is pretty much the only thing my husband and I argue and have argued about. married 37 years. I despise that woman. I accommodated and I shouldn’t have. Why can’t I obliterate her. Because My. husband was never able to stand up for me to her directly, with both us us I. The same room. He claims he did but I never saw it. Inheritance money involved. That’s sick too. he thought if he pushed they would disinherit him and leave their dough to his two rotten suck up brothers. I despise them too.
THey both divorced and married non American women who are silent.
Ass hat people but I need to let go of it all and move on.

My husband and I go out for a "date" about 2 or 3 times a year. The last time we went out was with another couple. Things were going very nicely and we were all having a great time. I look up and in walks my Mother in law. My husband jumps up like a 5 year old boy and runs to his Mommy. He hugs her and brings her over to where our group is and introduces her to our friends. They look incredibly surprised and uncomfortable. He then ushers his Mother over to me and says "Look babe, Mom's here!" She then reaches out and hugs me. WTF? This bitch barely says Hello to me when we go visit her and she's hugging me hello? MIL spends the next hour and a half with my husband, trying to visit with our friends. Then she gets up to leave and hugs me goodbye. The whole thing was incredibly embarrassing for me and I was so shocked by what my MIL did. On our way back home my husband actually asked why I didn't talk to his Mother. I asked him why she showed up like that on what was supposed to be our date night. He says "Oh, she just stopped by to say hi." I ask him, Didn't you just see her the day before for several hours? I told my husband that his mother crossed a boundary and he needs to tell her that what happened will never happen again. I also told him that we won't be having anymore date nights, no matter how shitty our marriage is because he can't keep his moth shut around his mother. When our son graduates high school, I will be filing for divorce. If our marriage is bad and he doesn't think his Mommy showing up on date night isn't a big deal then there's nothing I can do or say to change that.

Oh it is SO hard not to gloat on here and the fact you keep getting triggered all to hell is so entertaining. I wish I could go on and on about you both getting so riled up regularly. I can't risk either of you figuring out that YES I'm talking to YOU right now. Hello over there! I may be waving with my whole hand, but in my heart I'm only waving with one finger.

Keep on doing what you're doing and I'll keep doing what I'm doing. It's a beautiful system, don'tcha think? No? Not enjoying how things are? Well Honey YOU started this fire and YOU stoked it for years and years. Weren't YOU the one who started playing manipulative games? Wasn't it YOU who did (and still DO) everything in your power to try to make me feel bad (spoiler: it never worked)??

I never needed your approval but let me tell you what: I'm not gonna just lie down while you keep trying to walk on my head.

You're not loving the fact that your f'd up games have come back to bite you in the ass? It's all a reaction to how YOU treat US. When you can behave you get a semi decent response but when you Fuck Around And Find Out, well then I don't play - or rather, I DO play, but not a game you seem to be appreciating). Karma is a bitch (and so are you).

Wishful thinking

Posted on Fri, Mar. 03, 2023 at 08:42 pm

My MIL recently told us at dinner that when people ask her whether or not we are divorced yet, she says that she doesn't know. (We have been happily together for over 20 years.) My husband sees her every week and we visit together several times a year in spite of the chunk it takes out of me to put up with her passive-aggressive abuse. It is usually a rude aside, like suggesting I don't make enough money or I don't come from a good family. But how she would not know whether we are still married and why she would be discussing this with other people and why she would feel the need to tell us... I guess I am supposed to feel sorry for her that she finds the situation awkward that her son married someone he loves and is still happy when I am not from the right culture...Yes, how awkward for her that her child is happily married.

Your Last Will and Testament

Posted on Thu, Mar. 02, 2023 at 10:20 pm

You tried so many ways to make issues between my husband and I, and when that didn't work you just decided to ice out my husband. Did you think that your silent treatment (and smear campaign) would get him to realize (all of a sudden) that being in YOUR good graces would make him happier than being with a woman who doesn't try to manipulate him and hurt him?

Out of some kind of respect and familial weight we keep the minimum contact required, but you should know that our hearts are not in it. It's clear that your heart was NEVER in it, so you should totally understand, eh?

It would be easier if you'd just admit you're going to screw my husband over in your will and get that right out there since we're already expecting it and have had plenty of time to process that eventuality. There will be NO big surprises, big "reveals" or "last slights". Aww, darn. I hope I didn't spoil your big surprise.

You've made it clear how you feel abour your son, myself and our children a million times over the years. Don't you think we'd figure that out by now that you're hoping to get one last dig in after your funeral? My husband may even choose not to attend the reading of your will and will appoint an attorney who will be instructed to only tell my husband what (if anything) he's getting rather than for my husband to have to listen to how his siblings will get more.

It will be worth whatever money is spent on an attorney to not have to sit in the same room as his siblings while you show your ignorance and malice via your will. No thank you, he's not interested. You all have fun with it, though.

MIL you evil POS

Posted on Tue, Feb. 28, 2023 at 02:34 am

I cannot believe you seriously came into my home and tried to take my child's clothes to give as a gift to another baby. Just go to the damn store and buy a onesie! Why tf would you come into your grandson's closet and act like its your own gift shop? "Why don't you have any with the tags still on? It isn't a good look to give these to people without the tags" Bitch this isn't a store. These are clothes I bought for my kid. GTFO of here and out of our lives.

Tit or Tat

Posted on Mon, Feb. 27, 2023 at 08:31 pm

DH tells me that his parents "have always been very tit for tat" about things. That would have been OK. What wasn't OK was the "tit for shat". After years of going above and beyond for the inlaws only to never have any reciprocy or flexibility on their part, I'm done. Kindness was always met with criticism and the demand for more. The funny thing is that while it wasn't appreciated at all at the time, now MIL is crying to DH that she "wants it to go back to the way it was!". LOL! Of course she does! The problem is that it is a lot less stressful on my kids and I and even DH to not do shit AND avoid the shat!
