Hi there! My husband and I have been married for 5 years, we have a 3 year old daughter and are currently TTC#2. Neither of us has a large immidiate family. We each come from single mother house holds, he never knew his father and mine died when I was only 9. So in the end we only have our mothers, and those relationships have always been rocky. My mother has never been extremely fond of him and his mother has made it very clear she has never and will never support our relationship. She didn't even like it when we were just friends(we've been friends since kindergarten). Well a few weeks ago DH and his mother had a huge blow out and stopped talking. He had said that he was done having her in our lives, but I pretty much took it with a grain of salt thinking in a few weeks things would be back to normal. Well this morning DH says he's going to call his mom on the way to work and talk about picking up a few things from her house she had for our little girl. About an hour later he comes home, very clearly upset, hands me a note and aks me to go to her place and leave the note there for her. Being slightly nosey I decided to read the note, bad I know. To sum up the note, he tells her that he regrets ever coming back to live with her as a kid(another story all on its own) and says that he is once and for all done with her. That he no longer wants her to have any part of our lives and vice versa., that this will be the LAST interaction between us. Now while I've never really liked the woman, I kind of feel like we need to keep all the family we can, especially since our kids will only ever have their grandmas. Is there any point in trying to salavge that relationship or should I just let it be, and say we are better off without? Thanks for taking the time to read this, I know it's long.
