Quoting The Doctor:" Yeah, wow. I can't imagine how frustrating that would be, especially when it comes to your kids. "
So much of the drama surrounds the girls...They pretty much gave up on my husband when we got married (There's another drama in itself) but they're determined to try and, I don't know, convert the girls or something.
I know my husband still wants them involved in his life, as well as in the girls life, but it's been 8 years of this, and the temperature's maybe gone up from -40 C to -39. It's really frustrating...I always find it funny when people complain about their mother in laws, because as bad as they can be, I'm always like, ok, now try having a Muslim mother in law. It just takes it to the next degree of insanity.
But you would've gotten a taste of this, then, having dated into other cultures and religions.
