Am I being too sensitive?
Find a Conversation

So that whole conversation led to me sobbing and sobbing the entire car ride home. DH only made matters worse by telling me I was being illogical, and "they're just trying to help". Help with what? My schooling choices should be between me and DH. I wanted to wait to go to grad school AFTER I have children and when they beging school, so I can actually USE the degree I get without needing to put them in daycare. After A LOT of crying DH told me my plan is perfect, and if MIL and FIL don't like it, who cares? He told me I will be able to have everything I want and everything will work out perfectly. How perfect can everything be if MIL and FIL are constantly sticking their nose in our business, and telling me I'm doing things wrong?
In my heart I know that the only thing that truly should matter is how DH feels, regardless of what MIL and FIL think. But I just wish DH would say, "She won't be going to grad school right away because we're thinking of starting a family now, and it would be senseless for her to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a degree that couldn't be used right away." I know he doesn't want confrontation, but is this really too much to ask?
What do you think, ladies? Am I being too sensitive about this?
