    What Is Going On

    This is what my father in law said when he came to visit me. I was made to feel really intimidated and pressured in my own home. How am I supposed to say anything to him, he will always defend and support his daughter. Nobody knows what i feel and i can't cope with it

    It's sad that I married someone despite

    everyone in my life telling me not too. I'm now in a marriage where everyday I find more reasons not to love home. Regretting means not having my wonderful daughter.
