4 years ago I met my husband, and it has been nothing but incredible ever since. We were married this past year, and his parents and siblings have welcomed me into their lives with open hearts & arms. His fathers family (with the exception if a sibling that lives hundreds of miles away) is another story. From cousins spreading terrible rumors about me, to my husbands aunts and uncles utterding death threats at our own wedding, its been nothing but disasterous. He has one cousin who does silly things like unfriend him from facebook, and then turn around and question him about it, while subtley suggesting that I did it because I hate her. I've managed to cope with the childish drama and accusations for this long, but as we are starting our family, I'm worried about how to deal with them when there's a baby in the picture. I unfortunately grew up with my father's family hating my mother and it deeply affected me. Listening yo the terrible and untrue things my fathers siblings would say, and would often return home upset abd angry at my mother.
How do I put my own children through that? I have decided that I will cut all ties with them and thus my children will grow up without knowing a great deal of my husbands extended family. He is fully behind me on this decision, but I still feel guily, and have no idea why!! Anyone else experience the same issue?? HELP! Thanks!
