I am newly married.. and still adjusting to married life. My parents stay in another state, and I live with my dh and in laws. My sister in law lives with her husband and children a few houses away. I have written about my in-laws here previously, mil and sil behaviour.. but lately I have been annoyed by FIL. Sil & children seem to be his favourite in the whole world and we don’t stop hearing her praises and his love for her when she is around (every few days) or not.... also I have realised that he has never once praised dh for anything, or doesn’t seem to remember much of his childhood whereas remembers everything that dear sil did.. sometimes he is even condescending to dh (which i guess is a part of every father son relationship??) MIL is equal to both children.. I find FIL’s behaviour weird and irritating, as even i have a brother and yes fathers can be partial to girls but I haven’t seen such differentiation between children. Sil is outgoing and loud, and husband and I are more quiet type, so maybe that’s why he prefers having her around and remembers abt her... but makes me feel a bit like 2nd class member here. I come from a small family and have always got attention and love from both parents, so I feel bad for dh... and worry about differentiation towards future children from grandparents. How do I deal with this? I am working, so usually i am not at home, but how do i escape this talk and gushing over SIL and children all the time in lockdown? I am tired of it.
