How to handle awful future in-laws..?
My boyfriend and I have been dating for three years now and ever since we started dating his family has basically hated me for no reason. His mother has always been rude to me and sends me nasty text messages about how I'm worthless and bringing him down. I am a full time college student with a full time job, I am definitely not a bum nor am I worthless. There have been countless issues with his family from them invading our privacy by opening a letter I had sent to him while I was away for college, to most recently telling him that he is a loser for dating me and calling my father an alcoholic for taking him to a couple bars. Mind you my boyfriend is 23 and they have only met my father twice. They claim to be a holy Christian family yet are the most awful, rude, and disrespectful people I have ever had the misfortune of meeting. I have tried to work things out with them over and over again. At this point, I am done. Once they brought my family into it they lost every ounce of respect I could have possibly had for them.
Not to mention that they have kicked my boyfriend out twice now and each time my mother let him move in with her since I am still living in the dorms.
I have told them to never contact me again and that they are not invited to our future wedding, which will be happening in two or so years, once I am done with college.
My question is this, do I have any right to ask my boyfriend to stop speaking to them?
Their mistreatment of me bothers him, or so he says, but I want all communication with them cut off. They are hateful people who I do not want to be a part of my family, current or future.
Also, if and when we have children do I have the right to not allow them to see my kids? Are there such things as grandparents' rights?
