Wife’s Mother not my Problem
My wife had been a slave to her mother since she was a little girl. When we got married our dreams were to move out of New York, settle in the south and live a peaceful life. That’s until her overbearing mother took charge of my wife.
My in laws are lazy entitled people. They inherited every thing they own 12 acres of land and rental properties. They never had to do anything. They are the most selfish entitled narcissist I ever met. The ran their inherited property into the ground and sucked every last nickel out of them.
My father in law passed away last year but for the last 11y years my wife had been their slave. She can’t say no to her mother. When not at work she ignores her own kids to run to her mother. Her cowardly mother doesn’t want to pay for aids because she is cheap so my wife does everything but doesn’t receive any profits from the business she now runs. Her 86 year old mother treats her like dirt.
Meanwhile her sister who lives in a million dollar house in Illinois doesn’t help my wife at all. She calls and screams at my wife to do more. My sister in law also never worked a real job in her life.
They have told me I need to help run the property but I’ve said not my family, property and responsible. They
have always treated me like dirt. I’m the outsider they wish my wife didn’t marry and would divorce .
I have two undergraduate degrees and a masters and worked since I was 15. That’s not enough because I did not come from money. I worked for every dime I own.
I’ve waited years for my wife and I to live our lives in freedom but until my wife’s mother dies my wife is her slave. I’ve stopped waiting after a bad heart attack two years ago when in was 49. These days I travel alone.
My wife refuses to leave her mother’s side. She stayed home this past February when I took the kids to Florida. In two months I go to London by myself. Next year Paris. I now enjoy my time and hobbies without my wife around. It’s like I’m single again.
One should never give up their lives to take care of another like this. My mother in law didn’t. She sent her mother back to Ireland to a government run nursing home because she didn’t want to take care of her or loose her inheritance.
Now she demands my wife to do what she wouldn’t do for her mother. Every day I pray this selfish old hag would die and give my wife the life she deserves. Until she does my wife is her slave. For me I tell them don’t involve me. It’s not my business.
