Jenna12:  No. They will not change. I started putting the A**hats in their place. What’s gonna happen? He is clearly a jerk and need someone to put their foot down.

I got kind of mean with one of the FI’s cousins who likes to put people down. She was floored and I haven’t heard a peep. The deal is you can’t let emotions get in the way. I was stone cold and stared her down.

Bah. I didn’t read all of it. Cut cancer out of your life.

In my experience, people like that are stubborn, inconsiderate, selfish and will never change.

I put some distance between us and the people in our families that are like that. It’s hard because they are family and when you do put that distance there, it somehow makes you the bad guy even though you’re just trying to live happily with the one you love. You don’t have to cut them out of your life altogether, but there are occasions that don’t have to be shared with all of them either.

I’m sorry that you’re going through all of that. It’s frustrating. And while virtual hugs don’t help… I’ll send one anyway.

People tend to be stubborn. Especially older people. I applaud you for standing up for yourself. Simply distance yourself as much as you can.

These people will never change.  Try to avoid contact with them as much as you possibly can. Be careful how you speak to them because even though your husband gets annoyed with them they are after all his parents.

Jenna12:  Why don’t you guys just save yourselves the trouble and stop going around his parents? No way will they change.
