I have been married to my husband for 15 years. His two middle-aged

This answer was rated:

I have been married to my husband for 15 years. His two middle-aged daughters have always been negative towards me. I have never spoken to other family members about their behavior. We are having another relative visit and I wonder if I should mention their behavior towards me?

Cathy :

Hi and thanks for writing JA
I am sorry I missed you in live chat

Cathy :

You know you have taken the high road for fifteen years and no reason to change that tactic. His children are the problem not you so do not contribute to their negativity.

Cathy :

Hi there, nice to see you

Cathy :

are you here?

Cathy :

hello?

Customer:

It doesn't seem to have changed their behavior. I feel vilified and that is't unwarrented.

Cathy :

okay sorry I missed you again but I think you have done the right thing all these years

Cathy :

and it was also the classy thing

Cathy :

so keep it this way.

Cathy :

I know it is painful as all get go

Cathy :

but you are doing the right thing here and please know that in time

Cathy :

every other family member will have this one figured out

Customer:

I agree and I don't want to waste any time with their negativity but it certainly is wearing on me.

Cathy :

it always happens this way.
Take good care of you and you have all my support and care on this. I know how much this hurts and I think you are amazing to cope with it as you have. Your husband has a wonderful wife. Be well, Cathy
