Our expert says:
Its a pity one can't divorce a mother-in-law, sometimes. Its a bigegr pity that you both feel its unfortunate that this nasty woman doesn't talk to you, rather than recognizing that you're really lucky not to hear from her. SHE is the failure, not him.
Does your husband really HAVE to shop at the MIL's store, rather than any other ?
Speaking angrily to her won't achieve anything useful - you won;'t be able to convince her or to help yourself to feel better. Think of her as too disabled in the emotional areas of life to be capable of understanding or behaving like a properly loving mother. Its sad, but stop, both of you, looking to her for anything but unhappiness. You don't need her, and her opinion as to whether your husband is or is not a failure, is worthless. Move on, and enjoy rather getting to know other people, people not pickled in their own twisted misery.
