My mother-in-law and I have had our issues in the past, but they were never a big problem, until she moved in with my husband and I. Her husband died last year and she was struggling on her own so my husband suggested she come live with us – temporarily. The plan was we would sell her house, get her in a condo nearby and this would all happen by the fall at the latest. It’s now a year later but she’s still living with us. In the beginning my husband always had had my back, but last month we had a fight and he told me, “I chose my mother over you.” It came out of nowhere and I was so hurt because I have always put him first and I feel he should do the same for me. I brought it up to him this weekend but he doesn’t want to talk about it. I told him I just want to understand why he said it and what he meant and, all he could say is “Just don’t make me chose.” This made me feel even worse. He shouldn’t have to choose! I don’t know if I can accept this and move on and I don’t know what to do. Help!
