> My mother-in-law of 26 years always preferred her oldest son, giving him thousands of dollars. She told me years back that my husband was unexpected and she had hoped for a miscarriage. I kept this secret for a long time. My husband and his brother no longer speak because of her, even during their father’s funeral. How do I get through the holidays? I don’t want her in our home, but my husband feels we have to.
