How to deal with in-laws.
I've always felt my sister -in-law has kept me at a distance since I married. She looks uncomfortable if I hold hands with my husband while watching TV. When she calls, she will say "I want to speak with my brother" if I should answer the phone. When my father-in-law suffered a tragic event, my husband and I flew to visit him in the ICU. She told my brother I should not be there. She most recently finds ways to follow us around on the weekends; this includes her driving 3 hours to our house so he can remove a splinter in her finger. At our house , even if the three of us are in the same room, it is not unlike her to stand right next to my husband , speak in a low voice to exclude me from conversation as she discusses anything related to 'their family.' Don't think she will ougrow this as she is in her mid 50s. I want to limit my time around her to keep my stress levels low. Why do you think she behaves like this?
