Annoying Mother In Law (wifes Mother)

I have been married to my life for almost ten years now and cant seem to escape the pressures of her family.

I have now moved back home 200 miles away from where she is originally from.

She has two brothers both younger by a few years, however, one past marriage age

Her mother is always calling and texting which i have no issues with or coming to visit, however, I experienced a lot of interfering when we had our first child and disagreed with a lot of what she was feeding into my wife.

My wife always seems to take her side, yet I say nothing.

Just recently we have had a second child. My first child now sleeps in the same room as me and is literally glued to me, which is great and I really enjoy spending lots of time with her, so much so that she goes to me more than her mother.

when our second child was born she was around to stay and has since kept coming, i have no issue with this, however, she seems to baby hog and seems to forget that I am the father and I need the contact with my child at such a young age. So much in that she now even sleeps with my wife and child, this really irritates me, I dont even have any privacy in my own home/room to access clothes or take a shower etc.

She is always there just lurking and its not beginning to really get on my nerves.

She needs to tell her sons to get married and have their own children and return back, so she can look after them, I would wait to see what happens when they do and how her daughter in laws will treat her and give access to the children.

There is so much to type, however, I do not have the time, any help, comments would be appreciated.

Thanks

First thing First I say it openly that you Punjabi people are so dumb. Even though I am one you - your Punjabi tradition is cruel. You don't sleep with the kid. Then until the Mother-In-Law is in need then you decide to move in with them. You need to raise your family. You don't need any headache from anyone. You are raising a child that will one day become an adult. You treat both children equal. When my second was born I made sure I gave her more attention than the second. I did not want her to feel left alone. Of course in Punjabi Tradition Punjabi's don't care. Punjabi people are going to have to change after you get married. When you went in-front of Guru Jee for the 4 Lavas you did not have your mothers hold you to help you to get married. Extended family stinks if you ask me. You both have more responsibilities to your children than your parents. When you get married lets say early 20's to mid 20's your parents are what in their late 40's. They don't need your assistance. Until they reach lets say 70's. Enjoy your life and your children while you can parents can wait. Now what you should is probably nothing about your child does not think you are its father. Play cool with the role. One day your child will realize give your first child love play board games, activities so your child can me with you more rather than your mother-in-law. You have not lost not yet anyways. A child is like a mind that can be programmed over and over. Remember no video games board games, ping-pong use any table. Outside activities and there are many things you can do.

Man the hell up!

Tell her what you're feeling.

I think it may be a case of you being too nice over the years and quietly letting small liberties take place, which may have given them the impression that you are a weak pushover, and now they are running riot all over you.

You brought this on yourself mate.

Instead of b1tching about her sons not being married on a forum, why not pluck up the balls to tell her instead. But when you do, don't expect anything less than fireworks, that might take time to settle down. At least your missus can't play the "Right! You're sleeping on the couch!" card, as she is sleeping with her moms anyway.....

Please don't offer anyone advice in the future. You're laughably wrong on so many levels.

As for the "Canadian Jatt," if your MIL has sons of her own of marriageable age, YOU need to extricate her from your home, and send her on her way. The only reason she's been capable of filling your wife's head with nonsense is because you've failed to get your wife on side before her mother got to her. If your wife was on-side and you guys had put up a united front, nobody; mother, father, sibling, etc, would ever be capable of turning her head. That's a failing on your part, as well as an unfortunate cultural trait that afflicts our womenfolk.

All your problems should've been identified and solved quite a while ago. You've let matters escalate due to your timidity and carelessness. Take control of your home and your family. It is possible for you to do so in a calm and controlled manner without unleashing the inner pendu and resorting to violence. The question is: "Do you have the will to restore order?"

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh, if you are going to let people live with you, (anyone), you are going to have to give something up. I'm not married, but you could always try getting separated, (not a divorce), if this thing escalates too far. If your mother-in-law is polluting your child's mind with manmat, then that's not good either, (but your guest name proves that's not the most important thing to you). Also if your wife takes someone else's side over yours what type of promises did you make to the Guru during the Anand Karaj, that both of your souls are one, ([on a side note, does anyone really take the Anand Karaj seriously, or has it just become a party where you dress-up?]Really, can anyone answer this question?) About your second child, I'd say that would be your fault for not giving them the attention they needed, (just straight-up), the privacy part is still your fault, for letting her take over so much. Good luck with that, I don't know much about Punjabi culture, but I'm pretty sure you could disown your mother-in-law? (I'm just guessing)

Relationships after marriage just become so complicated. Keep quiet and expect the matter to get sorted - works sometimes. Things cannot always work your way because of the number of different people who are involved. Help from in laws should be appreciated at this time. Every single case is different. There are no hard and fast rules to apply to relationships. The most dominant person wins the case.

I have had to sleep with my son since he was young and send my husband to the next room just because he needs his sleep urgently as he leaves for work at 6 and wakes up at 4.

A talk with your wife should reveal to you what she needs. Does she need her mum or does she need you? After delivery women feel quite lonely and need maternal support. However if it means that your mum in law has to stay - then you need to bolden up and learn to knock at the door and get your clothes. I had the same situation here where my in laws came over and sleep in my own room and my things are there. I just knock and get my sons items too in the morning. Serves to send the message across - indirectly - hey you are invading and look what I have to do.

If your wife still needs her mum then set a time limit - give her a week and tell her to do without her sleeping over at yours, she can however visit. Leave the get your sons married part out as it is not your direct problem. Hope that helps.

    • do you believe in the bhai prahlad singh rehitnama that puts the dohra as "guru khalsa maneyo pargat gura ki deh"
    • This is an interesting topic. The thing that we forget is that even though the Muslims had their Nawabs and Badshahs, the vast majority of Muslims were very poor and lived a bare existence. The Muslims to the west had lands but most were very poor and with the rise of the Misls, these lands were taken over by our people especially in the border areas between the Muslim Jat and the Sikh Jats in districts like Gujranwala. The vast majority of the Muslim landholders in Punjab were of Rajput origin and even the British noted that as time went by these Rajputs were mortgaging and losing their lands to both the Hindu banias and the Sikh Jats. The Muslim Rajput tended to be idle and not hardworking so they were quickly losing their lands. Also during the Misl period whenever there was a period of unrest the Muslim population which tended to not be tied to the land upped sticks and moved away and the Sikhs who were more tied to the land then took over these lands. This was the case in Gujrat district when the Muslim Jats moved away due to unrest in the area and the Sikh Lobanas moved in and took over their land. These Lobanas then resisted the Muslim attempt to take back the land. With the British the Muslim landholders tended to be able to keep their land but with the increase in population and with Sikh Jats buying up more land with each passing decade the Muslims were being left behind by both the Sikhs and the Hindus. So the Pakistan idea was sold to the Muslims as a way in which they could take over the lands of the Sikhs and the factories and businesses of the Hindus. In Punjab especially the threat was that the Muslims would be under the control of the Hindus and the Sikhs. 
    • 100%, our worldy studies in language/philosophy/social sciences should at best/least reflect gurmat 
    • so you refute/dispute the authenticity of the taksal in times of sant baba gurbachan singh ji, sant kartar singh ji, sant jarnail singh ji, etc. I understand it is nirmala influenced and has evolved from its tarna dal roots, but it isnt preaching manmat of brahminism yet either only abnormal thing I can think of taksaal doing in a brahmanical way are the akhand paaths, etc. and I was never captured by giani thakur singh ji's katha, it just never clicked with me 
    • the hindu (aam banda living in the land of indus river) might be anna, but the mat isn't totally 100% removed from sikhi  and in today's age where there isn't as much clarity, we need to understands vedic literature more to understand our own bani which has beant references to things outside of my younger generation's comprehension (most people, and gursikhs especially, were already well-versed in vedic philosophies) we need gian of sanatan/vedic/hindu ideologies to be first able to pinpoint all differences and properly be able to do parchar throughout India  Guru Sahib also sent sikhs to benares to learn vedic languages as far as I can reference, I am pretty sure guru sahiban were well-versed in Indian languages of sanskrit, etc. (and Guru Gobind Singh ji maharaj in braj as well) persian was the wordly/political language of the day, therefore guru sahiban were learned in those as well and therefore we have the long history of Guru Nanak Dev ji freely having discourse with and enlightening maulvis, nawab daulat khan, babur and how Guru Angad Dev ji criticized Humayun, or Guru Angad Dev ji, Guru Raam Das ji kept contact with Akbar, or Guru Hargobind Sahib ji delved in the affairs of mughal state, Guru Har Krishan ji had a spiritual discourse with bahudar shah at a young age, and Guru Gobind Singh ji openly demonstrated to Aurgunzeb the hypocrisy of the mughals in Zafarnamah, etc. etc.  but gurbani references vedic culture far more than abrahamic culture, so hence we should prioritize the former in order to understand our own sikhi if we don't understand vedic culture, how can we differentiate dasam bani from hindu"ism" to smack down anti-dasam preachers who merely look at the name of banis like vaar sri bhaugati ji ki or chaubis avatar or chandi charitar to dismiss it to be mythological worship  bhulan chuka li khema baksho
