Hi, Does anyone else feel not appreciated in their marriage? I feel like I try and do my best with a good heart for my husband, his family and friends but for my husband it is never enough. He always removes faults in me, not in the way I do things, but all faults in me are about my personality. He thinks I am just ungrateful for everything he and his family does for me. If I remove any fault in anyone or say anything not nice about them - friends or family, he thinks I have a big ego and I dislike everyone. He never says nice things about me or what I am doing right, just highlights all bad things about my personality.I think he just expects me to be sweet to everyone regardless of how they behave or what they say. He expects I treat everyone like my own and treat his parents the way he does, but If I'm not treated the same as the daughter then why does he expect me to treat them as my parents? I am a sweet person but I always have my guard up and draw the line, because I feel if I let it down, I will be dominated by in laws. (I have had some issues in the past) The more I guard myself and keep my mind on other things that are not him & family, the more he seems to get annoyed with me and thinks I don't care about them. Lately the idea of having kids has come up and he has already highlighted to me how my bad traits will be transferred to kids. Never said oh our kids will be smart or good looking or nothing like that. On the other hand, my in-laws are very opinionated about everything, and always have counter opinions to everything I suggest. MIL only agrees to DH ideas & I'm sure this will only increase after having kids. Having a husband who is unhappy with me and inlaws with whom I don't see eye to eye on many topics... I feel like I have no control over my personal or home life and work is my only outlet. I don't even even want to have children anymore. I just feel low feel like why did I move to a new city to be with this person if the only place I feel happy and content is at my work. I just spend all my time thinking about either my husband or my in-laws, and I am just tired of being in this marriage now.
