I abhor my mil

Anonymous

I can never escape a conversation unscathed. She talks about a lot to seem polite but I always anticipate the insult because 9/10 times it is layered in there... I've tried to avoid talking to her or even having to see her but it seems I can't get away from this Petty manipulative woman. I've allowed my son to go over for one weekend each month. And even then I try to limit my contact with her because she is so fake...and I can't usually hide my distaste for someone. She gradually secured a spot in our lives and I want less time with her. She has become a nuisance and rarely misses an opportunity to undermine me. How the hell do I escape this woman without depriving my boyfriend and son.

    Keep in mind at this point you might be looking for the insult where there isn’t one. But the answer is she’s in your life forever, so suck it up and just talk as little as possible.

    Don't suck it up. Stand your ground. Talk to her. Your son doesn't have to go stay at her house. She's not entitled to anything. Why send your kid with somebody who doesn't respect you? Speak up or be miserable for life.

    You can always just send your son with his father to grandma’s house. That way u r not depriving them and you don’t have to see her. If she or your boyfriend can’t handle your son themselves then no reason to see grandma tat much.
