My son and DIL have been married for 2 1/2 years. Shortly after they married, I had a horse back riding accident that left me unable to care for myself, so they moved in with us to help me.
After I was able to care for myself, they continued to live with us. (We didn't mind, my husband and son are very close)
My DIL had a abusive childhood and was out on her own since the age of 14, going from house to house. We are a normal upper-middle class family and welcomed her into to our family because our son loved her.
For some reason, a few days ago, she packed her things and left saying, she was sick of being "married" to three people and couldn't live with us any more.
Why do some people have to create or "make a scene" instead of talking and saying that it is time to be out on our own.
My son is now torn between us because she won't come back, but they don't have a place to live together yet.
She is sleeping on a friends couch and he goes to see her after work and then comes home to sleep.
She has brought alot of stress to aree lives, and for no reason.
How do you talk to someone who never listens, can't admitt when they are wrong?
Please give me any advise you might have.
