I’ve been a widow for just over a year now. My husband died in Afghanistan. We didn’t have any children. My ex mil was hateful to me the whole time I was married to her son. I did my very best to be civil, but nothing ever worked. In the end I just avoided her and her nasty daughter. I just want to be left alone.
I’ve changed my name, moved back home with my mom, and I’m content with my life now. My ex-mil just won’t get the hint that I want NOTHING to do with her. Most of the harassment is from her not receiving all of my husbands life insurance money. She felt she deserved half of it. I would have given her half if she had been civil to me. But I chose to keep my 80%, and let her cry about it. For 6 years she treated me with the malice, hateful, rude, nasty behavior. I didn’t do anything to provoke her. She always said that I took her baby boy away from her. Her baby boy was a grown man, and he didn’t need mommy’s permission to marry me.
I’ve filed a permanent restraining order from preventing her from contacting me at all. I heard from my one my husbands family members that she’s “hurt” about it. Sorry I refuse to let anyone verbally abuse me. I’m just asking. Why won’t my ex-mil leave me alone?
