This is how middle eastern people think. I'm close friends with someone from Pakistan and parents are never wrong even when they are, lol. it's frustrating, but that's just how it is. He gets mad at me when I call my parents names or tells me to forgive them when I get into fights with them.

People only apologize if they've done something wrong. Was she wrong for getting pregnant from her husband? I highly doubt it. Respect isn't freely given, just because he's older doesn't mean she should apologize. He was rude and he needs to be sorry for his words. There's no way op should say anything apologetic to her father in law.

Haha. My biological mother is crazy. I haven't talked to her for nearly 5 years. sometimes they're not deserving of respect. but I won't get into that. it's just not as black and white as that.

#73- Being angry over an insult is not being disrespectful to an elder. It was disrespectful of the father-in-law to insult her in the first place, especially since she is very far along in her pregnancy. She is carrying his progeny and name, something I remind you that he never had to do. If he deserves respect simply becasue he is old then she deserves respect for being the mother of his grandchild. I realize the Middle East has different values but saying that she should apologize to shame him doesn't really work.

Sorry, but the "respect your elders just because they're your elders" thing is bullshit. People shouldn't get a special social standing just for making it to adulthood.
