When Your Spouse Hates Your Parents

My wife continually bad-mouths my parents who we hardly ever see and live 500 miles away. Needless to say I don't feel very close to my wife when she does this. How can I get her to stop?

Tell her you love her but you also love your folks. Each time she bad-mouths them, she chips away at your good feelings for her.

In other words, she's killing your love for her by bad-mouthing your folks. Or as the saying goes, "Death by a thousand duck bites."

Check out Doris’ latest books, “The Boy Whose Idea Could Feed the World,” “The Parent Teacher Discussion Guide,” and “Thin Becomes You” at Doris’ web page: www.doriswildhelmering.com.
