I've got a prob with my family. Little background: I started dating my wife 8 years ago in college. I suppose we were a little young so my family didn't like the idea. So my family would talk down to her and say sly comments about her and her family behind my back. This went on for 4 years before we got married. Then it continued. I was in denial that my family could ever do this, but then I realized that my family did say some pretty bad stuff about her and her family. And her family has been nothing but great to me and my family. They took me in as their own son. I'd never heard exactly what was being said about my wife until recently. My brother's wife has been saying that my wife's dad owned a whore house, he was in the mafia, and all sorts of other crazy ideas. Also, my wife has been nothing but nice to my family. She cooks for them, cleans for them, watches THEIR kids. And then they apparently said that my wife does all this because she's trying to win their affection! My problem is that I want to cut all ties with my family, but my wife does not agree to that. And I think that my family has been spreading rumors about my wife to our own circle of friends too. They've known my wife for 8 years now, and they still act like this. And they won't fess up to it. They just act like nothing is wrong. Anybody else have these kinds of probs?
