How to Deal with IN-LAWS? ( BEATIFUL WORDS OF ADOVIDE) BY MUFTI MENK
Interfering sister in law
My husband and I have been together for 12 years and we have two sons. I have a problem with one of my sisters-in-law. I feel that she places too many demands on my husband, and she and I have fallen out on occasion. My husband has "not got involved" and the onus has always been on me to smooth things over. She is quite a powerful woman within her family, and I feel they tolerate her poor behaviour. However, my husband feels sympathy for her and is, I think, scared of upsetting her.
His sister is now trying to play the role of mother. I sometimes feel she thinks she has rights over our baby yes she's his aunt but it's like the baby is hers. I speak to my oh weekly about her interfering which nearly leads to an argument but he gets defensive over her and takes her part. All he says is what can i do. She is constantly buying clothes which of course we tell her to stop I would like to buy clothes but at the minute he has clothes that he will never wear only if I change him at least twice a day. One time he would have totally agreed with me but this past year whatever has happened she can do no wrong. At the minute I'm still bf so I know these visits are limited but I hate it when he's lb away from me and more so when he's at her house.
Show less Whether or not you think your sister-in-law is crazy depends a lot on what crazy means for you. But some of the indicators that your sister-in-law is not considerate of your needs include being sent masses of outraged text messages, being asked to take part in gossipy "rumor has it" phone calls, and always wanting to be updated about your business. Most of all, she may try to hog the limelight all the time when family gets together. If your sister-in-law is giving you a hard time and you want it to stop, learn some ways to manage her meddling, a lot of which comes down to how you react too. If you have to deal with a dramatic sister in law, respond to her drama by calmly highlighting the facts of the situation and expressing how you'd prefer to handle things.
