I had started to think that my relationship with my future in-law was going ok.
Well my partner and I had decided to go on holiday and we paid his sister to watch the kids for a week and a half. When we got home I learned alot of really disturbing things. She took really bad care of my kids, they didnt go to school, my son might lose his autism program now, my toddler came home with a black eye, my older two(5,9) told me they never brushed there teeth, never took baths or showers, she wont give me back there clothes. I am so angry about it that I really dont want to be around her right now. My partner thinks I am over reacting and wants me to just let it go and give his sister a break.
Now his mother is getting involved. She is trying to plant ideas with me about things he could be doing behind my back, told me that he was hidding money issues from me, told me she thinks he is bipolor, but when he said anything she said she didnt say it, and made accusations about me.
We almost broke up yesterday because of all the family issues....now I dont know what to do. I dont know how to just get over everything, I dont trust his family but we all own houses on the same street now. He is very close with the and wants me to just be ok with them all. How do I do that when I know they are distructive....
OMG!! That is so horrible of your sister in law. I think you are not overacting one bit. I too would have been pissed and upset that my children where treated in that manner. My inlaws try to step into our marriage and life as well. Keep crap started and giving unwanted advice. You and the hubby really need to sit down and talk this out. He needs to understand and comphrend how you are feeling and how its tearing you two apart. Come up with a game plan and agree to disagree on some things. I think also not letting your inlaws in on any personal information, because your mother in law sounds like she likes to use it against you. ((HUGS))) Hang in there!
