Hi Cm1706 — First of all — congrats on the new baby coming!! Exciting times! I'm so sorry for the struggles you're having with your in-laws. This really is such a hard thing for LOTS of couples, but especially difficult with pregnancy and resentment that is coming at you from others who can't conceive. HUGS to you!
Through my work with Focus on the Family, I've read this article series that gives some helpful hints on setting boundaries"026and tips for what to do when your in-laws try to take over your life. Gary Chapman has also done a guide book for in-law relationships that might give some good ideas, too. Anyway, just a few thoughts for you in case they'd help.
I really feel for you and hope you and your hubby can communicate well and figure out a way to resolve this as you begin your lives together as a family. Hang in there!!! Keep us posted, ok?View Thread
