Gee The Mother In LawGee she was one royal pain where one sits. She controled everything or tried to. Hated me while the feeling was mutual. One might wonder why get married if this is so. Guess I was really not thinking or so lonely that it did not matter. From the day we tied the knot until 12 years later she had a say. My ex always loved her mother more than me thus once we departed felt a relief. It was something like a bad dream.
When we needed to make a big purchase always let me ask my mother. When we went to buy a house the same and she had to come along and listen to everyowrd which was being said. Living in a small closed knit town did not do me well. Everyone like dher more thus I had no say. She once made athreat to me along with her father, but just let it ride. If I was sick she did not care. Never came to my home very much maybe 5 times in our union. Always to her house for every holiday or for dinner on Sunday. Could not say much out of fear.
When our first was born she took over and I could not do anything. As she grew wanted to correct her but the mother slugged me for doing something to my kid. Wanted to press charges but with a small one horse town cop and being an outsider it was no use,. Could not control her and she just was the boss. The same was true when my second was born the same. When I decided to head back to college and live on campus she began to make my life more uncomfortable thus it was just fruitless.
When we decided to divorce she was delighted while telling me to stay away and never come back. I was refused access to my kids and thus never seen them since. Today she is in a nursing home from what I am told. Wellmaybe I am happier not being near her.
