I have been with my husband for almost 10 years. I came on this site because I have to vent about my horrible in-laws!!!! They really put a strain on our relationship. Last year's Christmas, I set up a beautiful dinner for my mother in-law because it was her birthday. My Husband's brother and his whole family took out my mother in-law to buy a car, that evening, with no regards to the dinner that was planned. They sauntered into my home around 8:30, everything was cold, and I was not in the mood to host them at all. They have been doing this kind of thing for years, and at that moment, I just lost it. I opened a bottle of wine, told them I did not feel like having them over, and went over to my neighbors to recap the events of the evening. I do feel grateful that my husband stuck with me on this, but I can't tell how long this will last because he is usually completely controlled by his mother! We have no plans this year to get together. Does anyone else have any horrible in-laws that they need to vet about or advice on how to deal with mine?
