Sister is the victim of financial abuse

Carolyn Hax on

Dear Carolyn:

How should I deal with my in-laws who hate me and a husband who always puts them first? They can do no wrong. However, everything I do isn't good enough. He acts as though they're his family and I'm beneath them.

I feel like moving to another country just to get away from them.

-- In-Law

Good therapy (solo) sounds a lot easier to me. As do discretion and a good attorney.

 

Take a deep breath, take precautions, and recognize there are times when others' contempt leaves you with only one reasonable choice: to prioritize taking care of yourself.
