I have been married for 4years(no kids) living in Dubai. I left my job after getting married because my husband have shift duty. Both working can be stressful and have less time for each other. First two years we didn't want to have kids. Initially we have been living alone in our own apartment we were happy. After one year his parents moved in with us because they don't have money to rent an apartment of their own. I don't get along with mother-in law. She is all the time advising me she comments on my cooking. She have mood swings too one day she might be good the other day she will be acting all grumpy. She is very intrusive in our life, she have know what we are doing where we are going out. As soon as my husband comes from work she comes out of her room and sits with us. His dad is alcoholic he comes from work at night he starts drinking eats food goes to sleep. Father in law doesn't involve in anything.His mother is the one who takes most of the decisions in the family.Mother in law is manipulative. She convince everyone what she wants others to do or sugarcoat things and present it before her sons and husband. His parents refuses to go back to india because of fathers alcoholism and they have a son studying in india. They want their son to finish his degree course so that he can come Dubai and search for job. Now she is also planning to make his brother stay with us when they are going back india Whenever i address the issues i am facing to my husband he takes it in a bad way. He is not ready to accept the fact i m not happy he says i m crazy and i m over thinking.
My husband is facing some mental stress issues he is on antidepressants. So whenever i talk to my husband he becomes tensed,worried,angry.Basically he is not able handle it.
I don't understand what to do whom to speak.I feel helpless.I want to have a life of our own have kids be happy. I am not able to handle the stressful life anymore. I have sleepless nights i sleep in the daytime and i try to avoid mother in law as much as possible.
