So my Darling Husband doesnt have the best relationship with his family. They have kinda grown apart over the years – even before I came into the picture. My Mother-In-Law runs the show in her family, and I’m under the impression that she thinks I run the show now that I married her son. So basically I feel like the ball is in my court to improve our relationship and her relationship with her son – and looking for ways to do this.
My Mother-In-Law in very nice. We’ve never had any fights or conflicts. One time when her and her son (my DH) were not talking – she tried to blame it on me. But besides that nothing really bad has happened. She just seems to be detached from me and my Darling Husband – and focusing completely on my SIL. Going over my in-laws house is always very awkward. Conversations are forced, and we usually have the same converstion over and over again. I feel like she isn’t really listening to me.
What can I do to make this relationship better and to get rid of the awkwardness?
