Uncomfortable

So long story short whenever we are around people my father-in-law constantly makes comments about how expensive our home was.  We have been in the home for 2 years now and are in good financial standing.  It makes me very uncomfortable and I was hoping there was something myself or my husband could say next time this happens to put an end to this.  We are really bad at uncomfortable situations so any suggestions are welcome.

Re: Uncomfortable

  • Your H needs to tell his father to knock it off. It's no ones business how much your home was and it's rude and wrong for your FIL to make comments like this. Tell him if he doesn't stop, then he won't be welcome in your home anymore.

    Stand up for your rights.

    Tell him politely it's not his call to comment and if he still comments, get nasty with him.  I'm not kidding.

    This is already an H problem. He also needs to tell his father to keep out of your business.

    Stand up to him and tell him to mind his business.

    Don't let anybody push you around. Stabnd together on this.
  • I always say that blood talks to blood. Parents are far more receptive to their adult child setting boundaries rather than in-laws. Getting nasty with your FIL will only worsen the situation. Have your husband speak to his father.
