My MIL is a toxic relationship. Plain and simple. And my DH had finally decided he's through.
I, as his wife and her DIL, am THRILLED. I cannot stand the woman. She's hateful and manipulative.
However, I am sad for Sean that he has come to these realizations about his mom. What can I do for him to make it easier? I have tried and tried at his behest to have a relationship with his mom - and it has failed every time. And so now that he has instructed me not to talk to her, email her, or call her, I would think I would be more excited. But I think it's okay for me to be at odds with her - but she is his MOM. Should I push him to stay after her to do what's right? Or should I just let it go? I mean it would seem odd for me to not want anything to do with her all the while trying to get him to maintain contact...
Any words of advice?
