MIL “Major Trauma” since DH came home.(r/JUSTNOMIL)
This is directed at DH, but it has to do with what his mother has done to him. You can’t change her; you can help your spouse see the light and begin to heal the damage MIL has done. To him, to you and to your marriage.
Deep breath: Next step is DH calling her to say “NO, my wife doesn’t need to talk, or listen to you for one second. I chose MY WIFE long before I proposed. She is the adult with whom I’m sharing my life. I’m your adult son. With a life of his own. I’m not your emotional husband. YOU are a grownup. You are responsible for your own feelings. WE need for you to BACK OFF and stop interfering in our marriage and our lives. This is me talking; my wife isn’t manipulating me – YOU have been. It’s over. Leave us alone. When and if WE are ready to communicate, we’ll contact you. WE ARE A PACKAGE DEAL. If you want a relationship, you start by doing what we’re requesting. If you want to never see us again keep trying to interfere.”
