You cannot allow anyone to show you such little respect or treat you so badly. My daughter in law is manipulative, jealous and possessive, a self confessed drama queen (indeed we have never, ever been in her family's company when HER family have not commented on this themselves for some bizarre reason!!). Prior to this relationship my husband, son and daughter and her family have enjoyed close and loving relationships. Since my son met his now wife this has completely disintegrated. My daughter, son and grandson are wonderful, sharing their love and happiness with us. My son looks deeply unhappy, is not allowed to communicate with any of his family in her presence and we are now outsiders. They had not known each other long before they were married and had their first baby. They met, became parents to be and married within 4 months, I do not believe this was an accident; she knew that my son would Never leave once he had a child. WE found out about the birth of their first baby on Facebook. We have little communication with my son as they live with her mother, a lovely lady but as my son's wife is so insecure (self confessed), we rarely see their baby. My son is unable to challenge or confront his demanding and forceful wife; whatever she wants she gets, he has no say. However I have come to terms with this situation as I will not allow her OR my son to treat us so shabbily, with such disrespect and causing us such deep emotional pain. I am not so desperate for any relationship, if they wish to treat us with respect we will welcome them all with open arms. It is of course sad, however my son is now a man and it is his choice, I cannot change anything other than myself. Good luck.View Thread
