I would talk to your FI A about it and either ignore their behaviour or call them out on it. I presume you’re both adults so they should be treating you as such. He is no longer their little boy but a grown man.

My MIL has a few issues with DH and I do feel the next time she says anything to him I will speak to her about it.

Outbackgal:  you dont have to deal with them. you are adults and dont need anyone in your life that causes you grief or unhappiness. call them out on any behaviour that you think is inappropriate – they will either stop or they wont. if they dont, then stop involving them in your life. sounds harsh but why surround yourself with people that make you upset?

One of the greatest joys of being in my mid 40s is that I’ve finally realised that I get to decide who is in my life.  And family don’t get an automatic invite.

His parents = his problem.  They’ve made it clear they don’t want a relationship with you, so stop trying to force one.  If your FI wants to keep contact with them, that’s his decision, but you don’t have to be involved.
