My husband & I have been together for 14 years and married for 8 years. When we first started living together my husband’s father told him that I was only there for his money and that if he moved in with me I would take everything and leave him with nothing. As the years went on, I thought they could see that I wasn’t the person they thought I was especially once we announced our engagement. My inlaws seemed really happy, that was until we sent the invites out and suddenly none of them could come. I put that behind me and we moved interstate and away from them. Over the past few years I have tried so hard to make them like me but nothing I ever do seems good enough. To my face, my MIL in particular is quite nice to me, but then I hear what she really thinks when she talks about me behind my back. It’s horrible to hear things like, my inlaws are hoping that we get divorced After 14 years, should I keep trying to make them like me or is it time to give up and not care anymore?
