I have already written on the pages of Alimero that the mother of my beloved man was against our relationship because of my child from my first marriage. Moreover, she did not pay attention at all to the fact that her son likes to communicate not only with me, but also with my child. Sometimes even people around us notice that the husband spends more time with my son than with me.
My child is a stranger child
Parents of the husband constantly try to emphasize that they accepted me with another’s child. At first, they even openly said that they didn’t need someone else’s grandson, so that we would visit our two of us with my husband, and I had to send my son at this time to my grandmother and grandfather. I was beside myself from such an attitude!
It is good that my husband turned out to be a fair man who took responsibility and married a woman with a child from his first marriage. My husband has always been by my side. And when his mother declared that she did not want to see another child at home, my husband said that there were no other people’s children here.
He explained to her that the child became our common as soon as we got married. He put the question bluntly: if a mother wants us to visit her, it means that they should accept our child with their father.
I was so glad to such words! True, at first they did not invite us at all and didn’t hurry to us.
Gifts and Holidays
My mother-in-law did not want to take my child from her first marriage. She tried in every way to humiliate or insult me or a child. Moreover, she did it so unobtrusively, as if not on purpose. Or did it when her husband left the room.
I was hurt to tears, but can you imagine what the little man feels who does not understand why this is happening? For example, there was a case when we were invited to the Christmas holidays. All the relatives of her husband gathered there. Naturally, there were families with kids.
The husband’s mother prepared presents for all the children, but nothing for our son. Moreover, she deliberately said that she always forgets that we have a child. Even the candy did not give.
My husband’s sister then offered to share a bag of candy between her daughter and my son. To which her mother looked so evil, that it became scary.
It is good that the children united their bags and arranged joint eating. After this incident, we take with us a small gift for our son and hand it over there so that it does not hurt.
Tell me, who was in such a situation, how should I behave and what should I do to make the parents of my new husband better treat my child from their first marriage?
