Well my husband and I have been married for almost 8 months and are also expecting our first child. I knew there would be issues between his mother, sisters and I from the beginning, but being pregnant has REALLY strengthened the tension. I really just want him to cut the umbilical cord already! However anytime we talk about this it blows up. I am 4 years older than him and have been out of my parent's house since 18, however, this was his FIRST move out. I realize this could be part of the problem.
For example: tonight we had plans to visit my sister for my nephew's first birthday. I hardly see her and she lives 2 hours away. His parents live 15 minutes from us!! Anyway, we had also told his mom we would come help her decorate the tree for a little bit before we went. So we are at his parents house for 2 hours and they still haven't started decorating and it's time for us to go....I was upset, however I gave in and said we could stay about 30 more minutes....so his obsessive mother starts unpacking boxes of all these ornaments that all have a story with them etc...there are 100s...we just don't have time for it...and aparently he is the one that decorates with his mom while everyone watches..anyhow...he wants to stay, I want to go, but he is trying to make me and his mother both happy..in the end I win..but then I feel like crap!...also both his sister's are unable to bear children and they can't stand to be around me because I'm pregnant....I really feel like the bad guy in this family!!View Thread
