I’m at my wits end
Since my father in law died in January my husband has emotionally pushed me out and instead has formed , what I can only call, a secret partnership with his mother .
He works away during the week and comes home at weekends , but since his fathers death his mother has needed him there for here many times. This is quite understandable , but she has always been jealous of her sons partners and feeds my husband poison about me . The more time he spends with her the more he hates me .
When he is home he goes outside to call her and have secret conversations which are mainly around bitching about me.
I have understood up to now but I am getting to the end of my tether , yesterday he said I irritated him so much he could hit me .
When my father died we became closer , but this bereavement has just made him closer to his mother and pushed me out , I feel emotionally abandoned . She is 76 with copd, she is behaving very selfishly as she is not caring about what will happen to him when she dies . ( when we went in our honeymoon she had to be physically removed from him )
I am now starting to talk divorce with my friends after hearing my husband in the phone last night
Do I just give up and walk away or give him more time. It is severely affecting my mental health .
