Clean

By Anonymous - 22/04/2022 01:30 - India - Hyderabad

Today, in the entire half-hour since my mother-in-law reached our home, she's inspected and criticised every aspect of our home, despite things being spot clean. And sermoned me non stop on how to "live". My husband still wonders why I don't want her visiting. It"s going to be a long two weeks. FML

You have to make it crystal clear to your husband you're uncomfortable having extended visits from your MIL in the home you share with him. He should be visiting her from now on. If he doesn't respect that, he can pay the bill for your hotel stay.

Your mother-in-law must be a slack-ass or going easy on you, because a proper lecture should be three hours minimum and if it includes demonstrations, five hours is just getting started. Half-hour? Amateurs!!!

Have you spoken to your husband about your MIL's behavior, how it makes you feel, and your expectations of him for addressing your concerns with his mom? If so, then FYL. Speak to him firmly and directly that he needs to talk with her or you will. If you haven't spoken to him, then YDI. It's encouraging that he senses there is a problem. But you have to communicate to him what the problem is and how you need him to intervene. He can't read your mind, and it takes 2 to tango.
