LotusGrowsInMud posted 6/28/2013 02:19 AM MIL is being very supportive and actually said to me that sometimes "divorce is warranted"...this is coming from a very conservative, Christian woman. Meanwhile my FIL is emailing me, telling me that we should forget about our own wants and desires and concentrate on our children...sacrificing ourselves for the "greater good". My IC keeps asking me if my FIL cheated on his wife...because he sure seems to think its ok that his son is a cheater. Next time I see my FIL, I'm going to ask him if he would encourage his daughter to stay with a man that cheated on her with over 4 different women...because that is essentially what he is telling ME to do!!!

Ignore that chatter- it is like static keeping you from the important stuff- WHat you want, what your boundaries and requirements are in a marriage. Nail that and stick to it. Good luck.

I keep hearing,"There can't be three people in R" There can't be four or five either. R is about you two and if you want To R what someone says is not important.

I disagree about ignoring. Support is important. Where you draw that from is your choice. Choose wisely.

My take from the information provided. Your FIL is giving common, yet bad, advice. Given the disparity in the responses from each of you IL's it does make me curious if there was infidelity. Could just be a difference of opinion - lord knows there is plenty of that on this topic.

In the end you get to make the call, however listening to people who have cared about you and you have been able to depend on it just wise. Your gut is normally pretty good also.

take care...
