Hello Group, you gave me really great feedback and advice on my previous thread, so I am looking to you again for great advice.
here is a post to a previous but related link: http://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=131765.0
I am trying to honor my daughter more and put her in her rightful spot in the family. There was a family dinner in honor of my husband a few weeks ago at a restaurant. Five couples were there, DH and I, MIL and FIL, DD and DSIL, DH's Brother and SIL and DH Sister and BIL.
Inlaws got to restaurant before DH and I or DD and DSIL, and sat in a formation which would have stuck my my DD and DSIL down at the end of the table. I politely asked my IL's to move and put DD and DSIL in middle of table.
New problem: DD does not feel honored by her DSIL and her MIL. Recently he teased her at a family gathering and MIL jumped on bandwagon making a little teasing out of proportion and an opportunity to jab daughter.
Her MIL is getting married for 4th time and DD does not want to go; she is sick of going to events where her MIL teases her.
She has asked my advice, I told her to set limits w her husband teasing in these events (drop the rope if he teases and leave the room for example) but to go to the wedding as it was a big event and if it is missed it is a Big Deal.
