Ugh, that’s so annoying! Would it be helpful (or maybe it would do more harm than good,) to speak up the next time they say something negative? Like, “You know, I really don’t appreciate when you say things like that about my parents. They certainly don’t talk about you in such a negative way.”

And I think your English was pretty great! 🙂

That sucks! I don’t think I would say anything and hope that as they know you better that they will get over it. It sounds to me that they are feeling a little inferior and intimated. This will be a lifelong relationship for you and I would let them get to know what a wonderful person you are. If after awhile they are still feeling insecure and still making these comments THEN I would let them know it’s hurting your feelings. I really think they are just feeling inferior!

I have had conflict with my Mother-In-Law as well. Everything was ok between us until her son and I had a baby together then she went crazy on me. Badmouthing me to people and his sisters. It got back to me and I got very upset. I talked to my hunny and let him know how much it bothered me because I thought everything was ok between his mom and I. He talked to her about it and his sisters haven’t told me anything anymore but if things continue I plan to talk to her myself.
