That's a battle you're not gonna win. In-laws are already shaky and questionable to begin with. To scrutinize them is to spark a never ending conflict. Treat yourself to talking to your father-in-law as less as possible.
She may have felt that it was a personal attack on her choice of husband. Rather than getting him to change it is easier to attack you.
Exactly. If it’s a persistent behaviour that hasn’t changed over time and you really would like it addressed, the best option would probably to bring it up with your spouse and let them mention it to their parents. The in-laws will be a lot more understanding when it comes from their child and FIL may even explain why he is acting that way (if it’s a conscious effort) to his child.
