Good day David, I’ve been married for a year and I have a 5 month old baby girl. I love my husband so much and I want things to work out. My ONLY problem i have is his sister in law (His brother’s wife) I can’t stand her. She flirts with him all of the time and she brags about how close they are. He claims that he is not close with her and she is full of it. Yet, when they are in front of my face they are both secretive. I told him him that I am very uncomfortable with I’m around her and he said to me then stay away! I want to be a family with them so bad and I think I’m try to hard to be part of it.She doesn’t like me and I don’t know why. She only invites him over to dinner and she will not tell him to bring us over. FYI, we live next door to each other! Literally next door—5 feet away! She runs her mouth to him if I come home late and then he yells at me. She doesn’t know if I’m stuck in traffic. She loves to see us fight. I think he tells her our problems and I believe she gets a kick out of it! I’m dreading having her over for Christmas. My husband gets mad at me when ever I mention her and how rude she is to me! I’m sad but I want things to work. I just want to be a family. He is close to my family but my family is NICE.
Ray, The unfortunate thing about this situation is that you knew that this was the case before you married this guy and you thought it would change? If he actually said what he said about staying away then I would consider separating until he sees the error of his ways. What you describe is pretty outrageous behavior. If true I wouldn’t be surprised if there is something sexual going on between them. Until he is willing to change his behavior I really think you should move back in with your parents or family and seek out marital therapy to get something figured out with this guy.
