Question: Dear Luise: I have a question as a new daughter-in-law. I have a very weird situation. My mother-in-law is uncomfortably close to a girl who used to be in love with my husband. My husband never liked her, but since her parents are best friends with his parents, this girl always assumed she would marry him. When I came along she tried to sabotage our relationship (unsuccessfully), and is constantly trying to make me out to be the bad person. My mother-in-law doesn’t realize that this girl is building a wedge between her and her son.. and new daughter in law! What do we do? S.
Answer: Dear S.: What a tough situation. You deserve so much better. I have established a Web-forum for woman who are facing issues similar to yours because a single answer simply isn’t enough. It is a loving, supportive community where everyone works together in finding ways to cope with issues involving adult children and extended families. Please come over to: www.WiseWomenUnite.com I hope to see you there. Blessings, Luise
