Confused on a situation with a step-daughter- in-law. Situation occured where I was unable to attend a dinner at her home. I was sick, also tired from being up all night from working 3rd shift. My husband and our two children attended and she really bad mouth about me to my husband and children. They tried to explain the situation and she wasn’t hearing what they had to say. I tried to talk with her and explain to her the situation and she just refused to listen. She called me a heartless b and would not speak to me for a long time, about 1 yr. She is now seperated from the stepson and wanting to be my best friend now. I have a 15 yr old who loves her niece and nephews and I want my daughter to have a relationship with them and so I say yes if she would like for us to take the children. I have spoke with her again about the past tense situation of her bad mouthing me and she states she is over it and I tell her I hope that we can be civil for the sake of the children. Never a ”I’m sorry for saying the awful words to me. Am I asking to much to hear her say ” I’m sorry”. Lost for thoughts on this.
