5. "It's not so easy being a sister-in-law, living with the in-laws. I am expected to be cooking for them, cleaning up their messes, and have to watch what I say. It is so frustrating." mrs_yang

6. "Yesterday when I went to get my birth control, it was missing. It was in the kitchen where she was cleaning, and now I can not find it. She does not approve of birth control, because she thinks it is a mortal sin." tierrajo1

8. "I was holding him and rocking him, trying to soothe him, and she actually got down on her knees next to me and started 'shhhh'-ing in his ear and then said, 'here, let me have him,' as if I don't know how to do it myself! What the heck does she think I do when she's not around!?" WWmama

I feel blessed to have whatever I would have been given, boy or girl. How do I handle all the negativity? [My husband] has one female cousin, and she gets to hear it all the time. I think that is why we never see her at family functions." brandie1127
