Wife's Daddy is Bleeding my Soul

by Anonymous

My wife has expected me to help her look after her 92 year old father, who wants to live in his own home, for the last 4 years.


During this time, 'Papa' has physically injured me, leaving me unable to work for 2 months, and my wife spends up to 4 hours/day with him doing everything for him.

My wife is doing this so she and her mother can funnel his $ to her broke brother, who she has bought a house for (this is with his approval). Any protests on my part have been met with anger and silent treatment, to the point where I nearly separated.

My wife sees nothing wrong and says if I detest her father that much (I have made no secret of my loathing for her daddy and her devotion to him) then 'don't go over'.

Easier said than done as she has no car (she spent the $$ she was saving for one to buy her brother the house), and it seems implied that if I drove her over I am expected to help with him, even though I usually take off.

I have told my wife I will likely die before either of her parents; she just laughs it off.

Apologies for the lengthy; I just needed to vent!!!
