    • I have not but yesterday my husband and his mom got in a fight and she disowned him.  It makes me very sad that their relationship has come to this.  Both my parents are deceased and now this.  She doesn’t like me so we don’t have a relationship at all.  My husband thinks that she is mentally ill as she is a very negative person and says a lot of hurtful things to him but then doesn’t remember saying them.

    • That is so sad Diane. heartbreak

      Apparently I have been disowned by my brother and it hurt a lot for a long time, but I’ve gotten over it.  I have friends and cousins who are there for me, so I don’t really miss him much.

    • Hi Diane,

      I’m sorry. I wonder if she’s forgetful maybe she doesn’t remember the fight and disowning him. My mom is also very negative and doesn’t remember saying hurtful things to me or anyone.

    • Hi TulipLady,

      I’m sorry to hear about your brother and you.  Apparently my hubby went through a period of at least 5 years or more when he didn’t talk to his mom.  I think this was right after he got kicked out as a teen.  He has 2 sisters too but they don’t talk to him either.  I just feel bad for him.  He’s reached to them too but they just don’t respond.frown

    • It’s a very sad, difficult thing to go through. However, if the relationship is poisonous, he is better off.

    • yes many years ago....my immediate family did not accept or acknowledge my husband for a very long time.  so communication with them was rare and often hostile.  i made a point of keeping in touch but that seemed to indicate to them my inabilities as a married woman, and for that they wanted to teach me a lesson...my children have had to wear this and for that i am less forgiving.  fast forward to today....my family are still who they are, and i still have very little to do with them.  my husbands family is the same to him too...i am sad that my children have very little knowledge of grandma or grandpa on both sides and they do not know cousins.  i have first cousins here in australia but do not have much to do with them too.  i am very sad for your husband i wish things were better.  you are his support, comfort and wise word when things get tough....hearthappyheart

    • Sorry to hear about the fight.  Sometimes family can be very hard to understand both in their actions and words.  I think if you cant make it work at least he and you tried and just leave it at that.  Nothing good ever comes out of toxic relationships, you end up hurting and they....just don’t care.
