I'm sorry your Mother's Day wasn't the greatest.....((((HUGS)))) We kinda celebrated mine on Saturday here, b/c hubby had to work a 12 yesterday! And, the first time in 13 yrs. my oldest step-daughter actually called me to tell me Happy Mother's Day! I was shocked...to say the least. lol
As far as thinking it's wrong for the x to be invovled with your in-laws...I'm with you on that one. It makes it so hard to truly have a relationship with them when the x is slithering around. (been there, done that) And, IMHO being sneaky about it makes it worse to me. I understand totally how upset you are about it! I'm the kinda of person that (sorry) would rather not deal with them if it's gonna cause grief for myself and family. I'm by far not suggesting you do that. Maybe you could talk to them and explain how your feeling about all of it. They really might understand. I know they think they are handling it the "right" way and are not realizing they are hurting you. Talk to them Serina.
Also, you did the right thing by explaning the situation to the doc's office. (been there also) I don't always find the right words to explain myself....but, I want you to know....I know how your feeling about all of this. And, your not wrong to feel how your feeling. These situations are indeed frustrating and cause much grief! At this point all I can offer is my support, and I truly hope things get better for you. (((HUGS))) again! xoxo ↑

|from a mans point looks like your husband need to have a chat with his family ( brother / kids and his ex ) to point out that you have feelings and as you are his wife they should Respect them.|
you can't let things bottle up inside you as it will be the end of your relationship. ↑

|Your very welcome Serina and thank you...your a dear person too! I have just been there with all of the same stuff you are saying. And, I had to "walk away" from it. It took me along time to do it! Yes, it caused alot of pain for alot of people....but, my family and sanity is worth more to me. I'm sorry if that sounds harsh. DAD said it...RESPECT. They all need to respect the fact that you are his wife and have feelings in all of this too! Sometimes our feelings in all of this gets swept under the carpet! And, sorry to say....her true colors will show through someday for everyone to see! |
I know I already wished you a Happy Moms Day the the other day.....but, Happy Belated Mother's Day again. Hopefully, your having a better day today. I wish for you many blessings. And things will work out for you and your kind heart! Take Care! xoxo
great reply! Very true! ↑

|I probably will have a little different persceptive on this than most here. Im divorced and 2 boys with my ex-husband. We have joint custody where the boys are 1 week with me and 1 week with him. Well his wife HATES me passionately and one of our issues is that she doesn't believe that I should have ANY contact with my ex in-laws. Now, granted I would never go over to their house for dinner or anything like that (that is a little extreme), BUT I do believe that a relationship should be maintained for the kids sake. I have to sneak around at this point to even talk to my ex in-laws. When we are at the childrens ballgames, we are not even "allowed" to speak to one another. Just b/c I divorced their son, brother, etc....doesnt mean I divorced them. Just try to remember that you have a common thread being the kids. ↑|

|I do see what you are saying but I am talking about going over tio my brother inlaws to hage out . I mean they were only married for a 1 ...and friend ships were forged to a small degree . She was not liked but any family memeber due to the way she treated him . But my brother in law and her were friendly ..But they have not hung out in like 15 yrs or more yrs.|
Once they new that it hurt me why re forge a friend ship.
The kids see ther uncle and all of Johns family ...she does not have to .
It is way diffrent if Johns family went to the kids events at scholl or sports ( they do not ) they should be friendly to her and kind espically for the kids but no more or less.
I d o not see why you need to talk to your in law but maybe you were married longer then John & his x was.
My take is you divorce him you do not get to hanfg out with his family except at school functions ...for the kids.
Just my take on it...
Much luck in working out family gatherings and happyness to you and yours ↑
