Fun Times with DH
DH's family has never accepted me. Yes, they are nuts, and I do give his sister and mother credit for coming to our wedding. However, they have always been super close friends with BM and since DH has moved an hour away with me, they spend all their holidays, BBQs, etc with BM. I kind of get it since they live close to each other and she has his kids, but now they are listening to rumors (untrue) that she told them about me and his mother came unglued at me on the phone and wouldn't listen to me at all when I tried to defend myself.
DH has NEVER confronted or said anything to his family in the two years that I have been with him about this. They literally treat me like I don't exist, or else they don't like me because of things BM has told them that I was never given the chance to defend. However, his alcoholic brother was recently put in jail by his mother (who he was living with) and DH told his sister to never talk to him again if she went to visit him with DH's sister in law. The brother and sister in law are in the middle of a divorce and DH is worried that she is going to use this jailtime to get him to agree to property settlements that he shouldn't . I was pretty mad that he has never said one word to his family about their treatment of me, but he is all over it when his loser brother needs help. He is crazy angry at me right now because "not everything has to do with me" and his brother really needs help. Umm. yeah, but I am his wife - he knows how badly this has bothered me and his brother brought all this on himself. Thoughts?
