My In-laws hate me because of my husband's lies.

by anonymous

My husband and I have been married for 28 years. We have 4 kids together. The oldest of which is 30.

I have never been accepted by by in-laws and never understood why...until now. Just found out that my husband has been lying to my in-laws about me for 30 years and now my mother-in-law wants says she will convince my daughter of my evil ways. She said she wanted me to have an abortion 30 years ago because of who I am. I was 21 at the time and her son was 31 and in the process of a divorce. His lies sabotaged any relationship I could have had with his parents and now she is try to turn my kids against me.

My marriage has been really rocky for the past 14 years and now I really don't know what to do.

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
