At A Crossroad

My husband and I were happy until my mother-in-law moved in a few months ago. She has been disrespectful, disruptive and manipulative to me. She moved in out of spite. She realized her son didn't need her as much, so she set out to persuade him to have her move in. I've been complaining to my husband, asking him to be firm and defend me but he does nothing. He only asks me to cook, clean, and be a decent wife and mother.


I find myself at odds with my husband's mother because he is an only child. She is so possessive and territorial, I can't quite understand her frame of mind. When I was just ten years old, my mother passed on from cancer, so when I first met her, I was instinctively thrilled to accept her as my mother. Unfortunately, with all that is happening, I just am not the kind of person to give so much while being intimidated and threatened. I gave up trying to convince my hubby to be on my side and prioritize me. It was at this juncture started talking to other men on tinder.


Since it's Tinder, I wasn't really expecting to meet anyone. Really, all I wanted was someone to chat with and distract me from everything else. One sweltering summer evening, I finally met this wonderful man. He is incredibly kind, assertive, considerate, and attentive. We share similar interests and hobbies. A a widowed veteran with two boys; we take both of our dogs to the dog park on a regular basis, and while watching the dogs interact with one another, we talk for hours. He owns a cute coton de tulear, while I own a cute australian terrier. In the past several months, this man taught me so much that he became interested in seeing me grow as a person—spiritually, materially, and physically.

We have never been intimate, yet I am enamored with him. Overall, my husband is a lovely man, yet he doesn't protect me or care how I feel. My desire to continue being a supportive spouse to him is influenced by how I feel. My children have noticed the difference and are beginning to lose their patience with me. Our teenage daughter's outbursts only make matters worse. He doesn't realize how crucial my mental health is to the wellness of our family, and the constant criticism I receive from his mother makes me want to leave the house. That must be where my foot is going.


Although he doesn't do it himself, he has allowed people close to him disrespect me in the past.

The other occasion was his close friend Ralph. Ralph enjoys making jest of me, consistently calling me the "cookie monster". My husband would simply chuckle, make light of the affair, and urge me to forget. Raplh never liked me, and I realized what he meant. He always believed I wasn't good enought for his friend, berating me under the guise of poking fun. His behaviour doesn't vex me, believe me; it's only that my husband tolerates his toxic personality and refuses to set boundaries.


After I came clean, my husband made it obvious that I must choose between him and the new guy. My first goal was to show my husband that he could be replaced, and guess what? Nothing changed. He was back to his laid back, playful nature. No resentment or jealousy. I have developed a strong attachment to my new man who I am confident is what I want. I shared my predicament with him and he simply keeps pleading with me to leave with him. I'm at a crossroads and I'm not sure what to do.
