    I have the same from my mother in law. she makes petty remarks about me (mainly her own insecurities as my family are more ‘well off’ than theirs) but it drives me insane.

    we don’t go and visit them as much as they’d like, and when i spent christmas with them i cried. they’re so different to my family and although his mother acts as though she likes me, i can sense a tone that isn’t welcoming.

    we do work through it though. sure it gets hard when i react to things she says, but ultimately my SO sticks up for me. he’s chosen to be with me and so she’ll just have to deal with it!

    His parents don’t have to like you, it’s nice when they do, but as long as they are polite to you that’s enough. If there are any serious problems/issues with this parents, he should support you and talk to them about it.

    I think as long as you two are strong enough and he is aware of the problems with his family and doesnt ever put you in the middle of it, you shoudl be fine!
