Anyone dealing with a MIL that doesn't like you because your a different race or nationality?
I am White (Scottish/Irish) and my husband is Black. We are both in our early 40's.
Been with DH 5 years, married 3. Never ever called me by my name, refers to me as Her or She.
Even when she looks at me she has the look on her face like she smelled something bad.
She knows NOTHING about me. NOTHING. Only few things she knows she has found out from my DH.
Never asked me a question about myself. Never struck up a conversation.
When I tried speaking to her I get yes no answers.
She refers to our marriage as a situation.
Needless to say she was not at our wedding. I was willing to have her there, my DH said no but not because he stands up for me but because he doesn't have much of a spine to stand up to her and would rather avoid her than confront her.
He has never had the YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIKE HER BUT YOU MUST RESPECT HER speech - which is part of the problem.
Anyone out there hear me?
