hi moms im new to this site I hope you can help. I offended my mother in law and now she wants nothing to do with me. My husband is now living with her due to a seperation and now he hates me. I tried explaining myself because I didn't mean to say anything to offend her and I even apologized but they both want nothing to do with me. We have two small children together and I feel so alone now just raising my babies by myself. Im hurting over our seperation and now his mom is manupulating everyone in her family to hate me as well. I feel like im losing my husband to her, what to do?
unfortuntely if there is a seperation with your husband then the mil is going to be protective of her child, and she is getting his side of things all the time.
Right now the important issue is what is happening with you and your husband. I would take a break from trying to get MIL to like you or understand, Apologize if you feel you may have said something that she took offense to. Explain it wasnt your intention but if she isnt interested in hearing that right now move on.
i agree. just if one of your kids were in that situation, you would only want to take their side, instead of trying to mediate. if she can't at least remain civil for the sake of the kids, then cut her loose and leave her to her own devices. and if he is only going to listen to her instead of opening his eyes to every angle, then he probably isn't much better than she is.
