My DH is slowly starting to learn to take my side, if he wants to have a happy household lol! But he used to take his mothers side constantly, and it drove me NUTS!! So does DH stand by you, or play up his momma's boy role??

Usually mine but if it is something I am totally wrong about, he will take theirs. But I just try to keep my mouth shut about them if something bothers me and I learned there is less conflict that way. If I do talk to DH abot something bothering me, I do it in private and do not bring it up to them because usually it is something so minor anyways.

My dh is wishy washy and it drives me nuts! One minute he complains about them and says I'm right but as soon as they call us or do something particulary nice he wants to kiss butt...

he used to always take his mother's side but now he is coming around and realizing that if he wants to keep his family that he will support me. Lots of arguments about this this past month.

When DF and I first got together, he often took his father's side and didn't realise how out there his father was. He was raised by just his father until he was 13 or so, and thought very highly of his father until he began badmouthing me every chance he got. Now he's realized what a nut job his father really is!

Nathan is starting to see how is parents treat me when he is not there, he has caught his mom a couple of times when she didn't know he was there... so he starting to tell them basically just let us live our life, and we will be more likley to keep you posted more...

Dh and I have always 100% backed each other up. Even if we disagree with what the other person is doing or w/e...we won't let our families bad mouth them.

That has been an issue with DH and I recently. When I first met him he said that his parents were "perfect" and really thought that they could do no wrong. He has come down to earth a little more in recent years and can at least identify some faults but still tends to think they are the best. I think his natural reaction would be to always take their/her (his mom is the dominant one) side but I think he is starting to realize that to have a happy home he better think about at least compromising in the future.

It took us moving to Graham for him to realize how they were... And now he doesn't go ape wild on me when I tell him how I feel.. He usually agrees.. I told him tonight that his mother's hate for me should not spill over to our kids.. That is her flesh and blood.. And she still treats them like they have the plague

I know that deep down, he'd like to take my side. But as much as it kills me to say, lately dh will take her side (if its just me and him talking) and I think its just to go against me since he doesnt like me ever being 'right' i think. Im ready to smack him across the head sometimes.
