BG: Mother in law has a partner shes been with for years. He's always been good to us and we've had a good relationship. However, since New Years Eve, K has been acting somewhat inappropriately towards me. Nothing I could put my finger on. K is only 10 years older than me. End BG.
MIL visited over the weekend. On Saturday night we had a few drinks and chatted wheb DS went to bed. All seemed ok until I went into the kitchen to refill MIL's wine. K followed me. He then made a pass at me, and told me he had always fancied me. "Why would I want to do that?" Was all I could say. Really, what?! I made it clear that I was just not interested.
Anyway. ..I told DH. K would just not leave it yesterday. I tried avoiding being alone with him. But every single time MIL left the room, he'd try again to break me down. When he heard I'd told DH, he wasn't happy. To cut a long story short, he lied to MIL. Said I'd come on to him. MIL believed him. Fine.
Etiquette question. Is there anything I can do? DH said no, leave it. I really don't want to leave things this way. I adore MIL. It breaks my heart she thinks I would do that to her and DH. I'm hurt and angry. They left this morning before I'd got up! They left at 7am.
Dh believes me completely. This has floored him. Had it been a one off, I could put it down to him being drunk. But the harassment and the lies...no.
This is a mess. B
