- Wedding: May 2013
So if you read some past posts you will know that my husband and I don’t have the best relationship with his family. He has sort of smoothed things over with his dad but still not quite a close relationship. He hasn’t spoken to his sister since before the wedding other than an ugly yelling match on the phone they had where again she reiterated that i was a controlling miserable bitch and he should have never married me. Whatever- I have come to terms with this and have even encouraged him to try and get his relationship back on track with his family. I am just over it at this point. His family has never made an effort to get to know me and I’m fine with that they can think what they will as long as I know I am a good person and my husband is happy with the person he married. Anyway – this is turning out to be a longer vent than i wanted 🙂
Basically his dad sends a group text to me, my husband, my husbands sister and her husband saying “happy first birthday to sisters daughter! we all love you!” and it just drives me bonkers – first of all send that to your daughter its her kid not ours so kinda pointless. Second – we were not invited to any party or baptism and have seen the kid like 2 times since she was born so kind of pointless. I am not trying to be mean – hope the kid is happy and healthy but its so not necessary stop trying to force a “big happy family” when there isn’t one. I am not going to respond because I really don’t know how and I don’t think his intentions are bad but its like seriously!!?!
I guess I just needed to vent. I am super emotional lately – I hate that it is like this – I never imagined that this is what my in-laws would be like.
