Can I ask MIL to stop bringing up DH's past marriage?
Hey I've been with my DH for 5 years and been married for 1. I have a DS from previous marriage. He has two daughters from previous marriage. He was with his ex for like 8 years total, 10 if you include breakup in between.
I know their entire timeline/history, because of MIL, SIL and BIL. Only MIL continues to bring up previous marriage occasionally. Things she's already told me a thousand times... How devastated he was when it ended and how worried she was about him, and certain memories that I've already heard. I know it all. We were going to the sports park for the Fourth of July and I invited her and FIL, and she was like no way, we went there 15 years ago with your DH, the ex and her whole family brought food and everything and traffic was hell after fireworks.
Just crap like that all the time. Why does she have to tell me about this kind of stuff you know? I don't NEED to know about their previous memories, especially right before I'm about to go there when it might enter my mind lol.
I'm not jealous, I don't mind hearing about her when she's being referred to in present day. But I don't appreciate people talking about their marriage and their divorce. My family has never done this to Kevin. Never mentioned my ex, ever! It's just rude.
What do you all think? Do you think I should say anything to her? I don't think DH should cuz she doesn't do it in front of him and i don't want him fighting my battles, so it's me or nothing. At what point/how many years in is acceptable? Should I wait until my relationship exceeds theirs? Lmao
