I am a hindu girl and got married in 2005. It was an arrange marriage. I have a brother. I have worked for two years and left job. We live in joint family with in laws and sister in law. Initially two years family members are good and understanding till I gave birth to my first child. My husband had already given me hint regarding his mom's behaviour before our marriage, and after our marriage as described by him his mom's tantrums started...she used to taunt me for every minute thing, be it any household chores or any post marriage rituals. She is very interfering and demands to be updated on every private matter and I need to follow whatever she says...her taunts are very frustrating for me..... I have discussed this with my husband, he always supported his parents.She used to care me infornt of my husband and when he goes for work she comes in her original avatar. I tried my best to adjust with her nature to maintain the peace in family but day by day it has become difficult for me. Because of her dual nature it becomes difficult to prove the situation in front of my husband and also every time I can not keep complaining about her to my husband as she is ultimately his Mother. Even my father in law and sister in law turned against me.My brother and sister in law fell in love and got married in 2009. From then it became more worse. Even my father in law and sister in law turned against me.I became slave to all who works like a machine.I used to cry every single day but I couldn't explain it to my parents as they suffer.My husband never supported me how much ever I suffered . Moreover my brother also with them.I have two sons.I have lost my father 3 years back from then it was hell.Iam not interested to be with my husband, as he is good for his parents and sister not for me.He grabbed franchise from me and gave it to his sister.I can't live with him. I have plenty of problems which I have encountered but I couldn't explain here . What should I do? What about my kids?Thanks and regards.
