MIL feels the need to constantly "watch" her husband, she blows gaskets if they go near a beach, or there's a woman running on the side of the road in *GASP* a tank top or other sort of revealing clothing. They purposely avoid areas where there may be women, she won't allow him to go anywhere by himself, she works with him (and my husband) and will not allow any recreational activities. My husband is constantly upset about the situation because he cant do anything with his dad, ever, except to work. Honestly this all doesn't bother me that much, but it bothers me when my husband is upset because he brings that home.
I am forced to wear sweatshirts when I go to their house, which because of that, is like never.
We had a major argument a few months ago because I caught them stealing pictures of our daughter off my Facebook, and by pictures, I mean EVERY picture I put on Facebook, which I discovered when I went to their house and all the pics were in frames all around their house. Also, I wouldn't have had an issue with this except for the fact that MIL doesn't want to deal with me and did not even bother to ask. This was an issue between Josh's sister and I, she was the one who printed off all the pics by going through her Facebook. (in laws don't have Internet, tv, will only listen to church radio, and don't allow a newspaper in their home.) Anyway, they called my husband and told him he's not allowed there any more and he should look for work elsewhere. This upset my husband A LOT and honestly p'd me off to no end, I thought it was for our best interest for my husband to find work elsewhere anyway, because their whole relationship is affecting our home now too, and threatening our financial stability.
So, fast forward to today... They brought their skidder tractor here so they can work on getting some trees out that fell after last Julys big storm, his mom was going to drive my husbands truck here ahead of them and then come visit our daughter, she didn't show up until after DH and FIL pulled in with truck and tractor. Then, when she did come in she said hi to LO and left... I was like WTH. I don't think that is a normal reaction for a grandmother. DH won't say anything, I think he tries to protect her because she obviously is in a fragile mental state, but I don't want to be the one blamed in the future for them never seein her because they act the way they do and I refuse to put up with the bs.
I am on the verge of not giving a crap and just calling her out on how flipping nutso I think she is, and telling her she should be ashamed of herself for bringing her son and his family into their stupid drama.
I guess I'm trying to see what anyone thinks I should do to deal with this type of people.
