Husbands Family Will Not Accept Me

November 3, 2009 at 3:39 am in Family & Relationships by Dawna

I married a man 5 years ago and his family will not accept me. At first we got invited to family functions but his siblings would not talk to me. We live in very very close proximity to them and I have given up all hope of things getting better after 5 years. I am angry much of the time because of the events that take place. I know that I cannot change the way people are but how can I deal with my emotions. Sometimes I handle it better than others but I feel like they slight me at every opportunity and he does not agree. He sees the good in every situation, the eternal optomist. I wish he could once in awhile be a realist, and see them for what they really are. I say blood is thicker than water and suggestions how I can deal with my anger?
