My Mother In Law Is A Monster!
I got married a few months ago. My husband was very romantic, funny, loving and caring before we got married. He used to work abroad but after we got engaged, he had some problems with his job so he quit. His mom was pretty nice to me after we got married but within a few months he’s totally changed. Now he argues with me all the time, yells at me and calls me names. At first I thought it was the stress of being unemployed, but we didn’t have financial problems since he has quite a few investments.
My mom-in-law and sister-in-law live with us. I cook and clean yet my husband says I can’t do anything right, that I’m good for nothing and he regrets marrying me. Then slowly, my mom-in-law started complaining too, over very petty matters, which lead to further arguments between my husband and me. To add insult to injury, I found out my mom-in-law was talking behind my back to my husband, which was further pissing him off.
On my birthday, my husband gave me a watch, but my mother-in-law took it and gave that watch to my sister-in-law. When her relatives come over to our place, I have to cook all the time. They never help me and I am left exhausted from working all day. My mom-in-law is very controlling and my husband is very mean to me. He just got a new job in a new city. I thought he would get back to normal, but I guess this is normal for him. His mom still controls him and tries to control me too. I’m so worried!
What should I do, Rene?
Married and Miserable
Every night when I was a kid, I gently placed the needle of my blue record player onto vinyl and drifted off to sleep listening to fairy tales. One of my favorites was Cinderella, a tale I’m sure you’re familiar with because, YOU’RE LIVING IT!
Girl, you asked for my advice so here it is; you need to get the hell out of there and I mean like yesterday! Run far, run fast and don’t stop until you’re at the border. Here’s why:
