I cannot believe how selfish and cruel my DL is being. She has been married to my son for eleven years and they have two beautiful children 3 and 6. She seems to be having an early mid life crisis and has accused my son of neglecting her. ( This after he had spent 6 days on his own with us to give her a break and 4 more days later that month camping alone with them.)
She accused him of being lazy and disinterested. She nags him all the time because he is not what she wants him to be. He said that in that case they should part but he would fight for custody of the children.
Now she is harking back to a trip to Nepal that she took when she was 20. She was 'truly happy' doing things for herself. She is planning to go back in two years.Now that the children are not so dependent on her!! In the mean time she is going to do a another mountain challenge in this country. This is a woman who has to lie down if she cooks a meal.
Now she has changed her mind and doesn't want to split up with my son.He is in a dilemma as he knows he will take a long time to rebuild the relationship but is worried about the children.
My question is how we will cope ,if/when they get back together, when we come to see her again. (They live four hours away)!
Do we say what we think about her behaviour or keep quiet? Don't think D.H. will be able to be under the same roof as her ever again!
