- Wedding: July 2010
Well we are now in November and that means the holidays are so close! That is good unless there is family you can’t stand and not to sound like a broken record but that is my Mother-In-Law.
A little background because I can’t make this up.
1) Mother-In-Law is divorced from Father-In-Law because she cheated on him. Not only that but she used my husband and his brother to cheat. She took them on weekend fishing trips so she could cheat and then she made them write in a journal to see if they were picking up on anything suspicious. Husband’s brother found an email and ratted her out. My husband decides to live with dad after divorce (makes sense) Mother-In-Law couldn’t believe that he would rather live with father and blames the older brother for turning my husband against her and tries to make older brothers life a living hell.
2) My husband and his brother both had life insurance policies taken out when they were born incase anything would happen. The policies were enough to take care of funeral expenses. My husband’s brother beat a form of bone cancer once but after the divorce it came back. Mother-In-Law canceled my husband’s life insurance and pocketed however much it was and increased husband’s brothers life insurance. This may seem logical but she didn’t tell anybody. Husband’s brother was in college when this happened so he’d be old enough to understand why she would increase to over $100,000. Also he got married so that means the policy should be signed over to him and his new wife. Not the case, Mother-In-Law is so greedy that if she couldn’t get the payout then no body will. Side note: When one child has this type of bone cancer the risk for the next child increases greately..so why did she cancel my husbands life insurance???? Luckily he never got cancer but I don’t know why a parent would take that risk.
3) My husband’s brother did pass away (I never got to meet him unfortunately) and when his mom was came to have final words with him at the hospital she did something horrible. She was screaming at him about how horrible of a son he was, that he was a b*stard, an SOB , etc etc etc. My husband, his dad, and SIL were in the hallway greiving and then they hear this.
I’m so angry and one reason why I feel so angry is because she acts like nothing is wrong and that she is a good mother. It makes me angry that she kept her married last name when she ruined her family (she also has a personalized license plate with the last name…seriously!). It makes me angry that she thinks that baking cookies and buying expensive gifts makes her better person. I know my husband loves her because it’s his mom and he feels he has too but he really does not like her and trys to keep her at a safe distance from our personal lives. There are sometimes when I’m around her and I feel like I’m going to crack because she is such a bad, horrible, moral-less person.
Sorry for a long post but I know there are others out there who go through the same thing. How do you see yourself handling the holidays with these types of people in your life? I’d love to hear from you!
