how do I get my inlaws to back off
I already added details to this question and ask.com felt the need to delete them... so basically I have in laws that live right down the street, they are controlling, overbearing, and just pretty much drive me crazy! when my husband and I first started dating the problem was mostly my mother in law whom stuck up her nose up at the minute she met me! When we got married it got worse, she constantly competed against me! I felt like I was living in that movie Monster In Law with Jane Fonda and Jennifer Lopez! When our child was born, I had to get on some serious medication just to deal with the stress! This too was when my father in law became a problem! Everything was fine as long as our child's world revolved around them, but the minute we do what we want or try to make our own decisions then they bad mouth me (not my husband, just me) behind my back! They get jealous over my parents ( who live 40 mins away) spending time with our child, and that's not even half of it! Oh yeah, and my mother in law got a job at my child's daycare 2 days after I enrolled her! When I try to politely ask them to back off, it is as if demons have been unleashed, and to make matters worse, when I try to talk to my husband about it, we just end up arguing! I have thought seriously about just ending my marriage and moving away! But I fear that it would just make things worse on our child! Also I do love my husband and I try to have faith that things will get better!
