Just a vent , dont think there is any 'solution' other than accepting and making peace with it Most women here are complaining about in-laws but for me its parents! They have a bad attitude/complex when it comes to me & money Background : They have enough if not more , their son is doing fine too. My husband and I do have more $$ than either of them We dont expect anything from them rather do whatever we can do for them. But some examples of hurtful/annoying behaviour : 1) At their son's wedding , clothes were gifted to everyone - their siblings , nieces etc ( even to my in laws) BUT not me and my husband. ( Note : these are people who gave money every year to my paternal aunts and my m other gets money every year from her brother's for a saree).. Its not like they dint have the money just for the 2 of us. 2) Because of their complex , they act like they want to give is gifts : ex : she will call my MIL and ask if its ok for her to buy a XYZ silver item for me ( claiming to check the tradition or what not). Everyone knows my in-laws will say no. Then she will tell me , I wanted to buy this , but your MIL said , you shouldnt have it unless you do Pooja every day! No one sked her to buy me anything. As if she takes my in-laws' permission for everything. 3) They are now visiting me in US now. She tells me my cousin gifted her money and said either spend it or give it to her(me) but dont bring it back. So she tells me Dad dint even acknowledge it ( implying he doesnt want to give it to me) - but the money was given to HER! She dint even have to tell me any of this. Again , I dont care about the $$. But its annoying hurtful.
