- Wedding: March 2007
I have a sticky relationship with my father in law. My husband and I have been together for 13 years, and have been happily married with our first baby on the way.
However, my father in law always causes fights and problems between us.
I don’t like my father in law due to several disrespectful things he has done, both towards me and my husband and despite trying for many years to build a mutually respectful relationship with him … he never meets half way.
Instead, he just talks to my husband and makes no effort with me.
This has been fine, considering we live overseas, and to be honest … not having him around has been a blessing for me.
But my husband loves his Dad, always sticks up for his father, despite agreeing some of his behavious has been disrespectful.
He wants me to make an effort now with his father again because I am pregnant. And he wants his father to visit us next year when the baby arrives.
I put my foot down and said NO, i have tried with no results, my sole focus now is my baby and my husband and I, not his father.
So now my husband and I are fighting and it’s causing a great distress in our relationship.
What to do?
