I am a Catholic and my husband converted from southern Baptist to Catholicism about 2 years ago. My mother in law is a sometimes practicing southern baptist and holds true to alot of their teachings such as the ban on alcohol. She is constantly bad mouthing our religion and sends my husband sermons and information on why alcohol should not be allowed. (We drink from time to time in moderation).
My other problem is that she sits there and condemns us while she has been married 3 times and never goes to church and allows her younger sons to have girlfriends sleepover and it just seems like the pot calling the kettle black and yet I have never called her out on any of these things.
She also claims they have no money to come and visit us forcing us to spend $2,000 on plane tickets every year(We live in another state and have 3 children) and yet they are vacationing in New York and buying a brand new truck.
Our visit with her and the rest of his family is in 2 weeks and I just know I’m going to be miserable as I just have a hard time getting along with her and I don’t know how much longer I can keep my mouth shut. Any suggestions on a kind way to approach her?
