Hi I know the title of this post suggests that it should be in the in laws forum but I wanted to talk about it here. Thing is my sister in law is too much close to my husband and that directly affects our relation. We are married less than a year actually and it is very odd that she has this indelible spell on my husband to the extent that even if she breathes my husband thinks, she is the best at the art of breathing. It is very difficult to deal with this level of closeness between the two. Feels like almost the two are inseparable and I am fighting for my place in this relation. I know in Indian families this is probably not an unprecedented situation. Even I have a sibling so I know what sibling love is but my sister and I are very clear about our priorities and who what is. WHen I approach my husband about this topic, he calls me names saying that my mind is polluted. I have given up on my dream to be the wife who will be loved unconditionally...my husband is very open about his love for his sister but not to me and he says thats how south indian men are. They don't show their love for their wives. Bottomline he has an answer for everything. More than mad, it makes me very sad. I am in this relation at this point only for our child.
