Condescending Mother-in-law
Question:

Dear Sir, I want to know how to deal with this situation wherein for last 12 years I have been trying to ignore and keep distance from a mother in law who has been out rightly condescending, abusive and does not like me because I did not fit her mental framework of being tall and beautiful. She does not need any reasons. Seeing my face makes her angry. She is hostile and sometimes even shuts the door on my face or pushes me aside if need be. Refuses to talk to me nicely, is always negative about my looks and has been bad mouthing me. She has started cooking up stories about my character and keeps wishing bad things happen to me. My response to all this has been to keep quiet to avoid confrontation, as she secretly wishes I pick up a fight so that she can make things ugly. She is getting frustrated that I do not give her this opportunity and ups her ante. My problem is, I am suffering inside, want to fight it out but does not get an opening from my side, while I am seething with anger with no outlet, as I love my husband too much to do this to his mother as he in turn will get affected as well. He however has been of no help either, since he is non-confrontational as well, and till as such time he is not involved in this mess, he is happy staying at the edge.


Response:

There may be little you can do to change her feelings toward you, but you need to tell your husband to step up and be a real husband and tell his mother that he has made his decision to marry you and make his life with you. He is not a child anymore and that if she wants to be a close part of his life as an adult she will need to respect you and his marriage decision. The early years of marriage are hard enough as it even without negative outside interference. You husband needs to see that his mother’s hateful attitude is not only disrespectful and unkind to you, it is disrespectful and unloving to him as well. He needs to man up, decide that this is his life to live, not his mother’s and establish the healthy boundaries in his marriage now, or it is just a matter of time before his mother ruins the marriage.

Love,
Deepak

My name is john max, my family and i live in NY USA.It was after\nseven years i got to discover that my wife was unfaithful to me.I\ndidn`t know what was going on at first but as she got deep in the\naffair with her new lover, i felt that our marriage was on the rocks.I\nnotice that she no longer light up when i touch her or kiss her in her\nneck and her chest cos she really liked it when i did that, she also\nusually get naked in front of me but when she started seeing that guy\nshe stopped it.I remember asking her if i have done anything that\nmakes her feel irritated when i am around her then she gives silly\nexcuses that she has been feeling stressed up and that she need space\nfor a while.I know when you are been asked for space its usually\nbecause there is something fishy is going on.I hired a private\ninvestigator to help find out what was going on.And in a week time he\nbrought me prove that my wife that i have lived with for seven\nstraight year is cheating on me with her high school lover.I had\npicture of her walking out a of a restaurant with him and many other\nphoto of them kissing in public like she will never be caught by\nsomeone that knows she is my wife.I asked myself, even when we had a\ndaughter together she could this to me.That same night i showed her\nthe pictures that i got from my private investigator.She didn`t look\nat it before saying, that she is seeing someone and she know that i\njust found out about it.Then she said that she is in love with him.At\nthat moment, i didn`t know if to kill myself or to kill her but the\nbutton line is that if i was going to kill anyone it was going to be\nme cos i was so much in love with her to even think of thinking to\nhurt her.As time when on she asked for a divorce and got it and even\ngot custody of our daughter and i was all alone by myself.For a year i\ntried all i could to get her back with the help of my seven year old\ndaughter.Even at that all effect was in vain, i used the help of her\nfriend but turned out all bad.I know most people don`t believe in\nspell casting but believe me this was my last option and the result i\nmost say was impressive.And i know it difficult to believe but A SPELL\nCASTER Dr baluta really made my life much better cos he gave me my\nfamily back.He didn`t ask me to pay for what he did for me all i was\nto do, was to provide the materials for the spell and believe that he\nhad the power to help me.Like he said, he was going to do something\nthat will make her reset her love and affection for me just as it has\nalways been.My wife told me she woke up and realized that she should\nhave never left me that i am all she needs.To make thing clear, her\nlife with her high school lover was great before Dr baluta castled the\nspell they had no disagreement on anything.The guy said it himself\nthat why she broke up with him is unexplainable.Only Dr baluta can do\nsuch a thing contact him to solve your problem with his\nemail: balutaspelltemple@gmail.com\n\nHE IS SPECIALIZE IN THE THE FOLLOWING SPELL.\n\n(1) If you want your ex back.\n\n(2) if you always have bad dreams.\n\n(3) If you want to be promoted in your office.\n\n(4) If you want women/men to run after you.\n\n(5) If you want a child.\n\n(6) If you want to be rich.\n\n(7) If you want to tie your husband/wife to be yours forever.\n\n(8) If you need financial assistance.\n\n(9) How you been scammed and you want to recover you lost money.\n\n(10) if you want to stop your divorce.\n\n(11) if you want to divorce your husband.\n\n(12) if you want your wishes to be granted.\n\n(13) Pregnancy spell to conceive baby\n\n(14) Guarantee you win the troubling court cases & divorce no matter\nhow what stage\n\n(15) Stop your marriage or relationship from breaking apart.\n\n(16) if you have any sickness like ( H I V ), (CANCER) or any sickness.\n\n(17) if you need prayers for deliverance for your child or yourself.\n\nonce again make sure you contact him if you have any problem he will\nhelp you. his email address is (balutaspelltemple@gmail.com) contact him\nimmediately

GREAT MAN WHO HELP ME GET MY EX HUSBAND BACK I never use to believe in spell casting until i met Dr wellborn a powerful spell caster who helped me to be a happy person again. My name is Sandra martins and i reside in CANADA. After 3 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with three kids. I felt like my life was about to end and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a Great spell caster called Dr wellborn which i met online on one faithful day when I was browsing CANADA Athrough the internet, i came across a lot of testimonies about this particular Great spell caster how he has helped so many people. he has helped people to bring back their Ex lover, some testified that he restores womb, cure cancer and other sickness, and so on. I also came across a testimony, it was about a woman called Amanda, she testified about how his spell made her to be pregnant after so many years of bareness and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr wellborn email address. After reading all these, i decided to give it a try and i contacted him and explained my problem to him and he assured me that in less than 48 hours, my husband will call me and beg for forgiveness but i thought it will not work. When he had finished casting the spell, the next day my husband called me and he was begging for forgiveness just as Dr wellborn said. This is not brain washing and after the spell has been cast, i realized that my husband love me like never before and the spell caster opened him up to know how much i love him and how much love we need to share. We are even happier now than before. Dr wellborn is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and a genuine spell caster to solve all your problems contact Dr wellborn now on wellbornspelltemple@gmail.com he will help you solve your problems. Once again thank you Dr wellborn for your good deeds. Sandra martins _CANADA\nVisit Date: 7/9/2014

THE GREAT POWERFUL SPELL CASTER THAT BRING BACK MY EX BOYFRIEND. I just want to say thank you Dr BABA for all you have done for me. He is back now. That very powerful spell caster STOP THE DIVORCE - and get my ex boyfriend back. My name is Annmarie Silvia , from ENGLAND. I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once when i went for a business summit early this year. I meant a man who`s name is Dr BABA he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one`s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I`m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down because our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster,i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try.And in 7 days when i returned to ENGLAND, my boyfriend(now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mother and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn`t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better.in case you are in any situation you can contact Dr BABA at his email baba100spelltemple@gmail.com thank to all your help Dr BABA i promise to share this Testimony to every body in the world wide baba100spelltemple@gmail.com
