Ever known anyone that stayed in a bad relationship/marriage for the love of their mate's family?


I knew of a person who loved their in-laws and their family gatherings so much that they were willing to endure unhappiness in the marriage in order to maintain that bond. Since she had no children by this man she knew a divorce would likely cut her ties with his family and friends. Have you ever known anyone who loved their mate's family more than their own? Sometimes one of the casualties of divorce is the loss of the special bond formed with in-laws; but is it worth staying in a toxic marriage?

    Say Yes To Life, That was a very strange and unique story. Her mother-in-law apparently was the glue that kept them together and brought them back together as well.

    Lady Summerset, I imagine there must many people out there who have bonded with families of their exes to a point where they felt like an actual blood member. After the divorce/ breakup they realize the family loyalty remains with their ex.

    " Men and women need to remember to be the person that the other person loved enough to marry." - Excellent advice!
