How to get along with in-laws who suck and whose values are the exact opposite of your own? ?
I have been married for five years. While I love my husband's parents and brother, their values are the exact opposite of mine. The parents were extremely selfish while they were growing up and they treated them (my husband and his brother) like crap!!!!! They basically did the bare minimum the law requires them to do as parents (food, clothing, shelter, public education). I'm from a family that believes children should be put first and sacrifices should be made in order to give them the best life possible and to save for their college tuition. Additionally, my husband and I are conservative. His family is very liberal and weird. For instance, the mom has said very pro-abortion things in the past that pissed me off and she and her husband take disgusting nude sexual pictures of them and they keep them publically available on a computer that is not password protected and in a public area of the house. (I'm talking butt plugs and messy analingus and things like that. It's appalling.) They leave their poop-covered sex toys out in the open (their other son still lives with them) and they are both swingers. Obviously this disgusting behavior conflicts with my personal values. I find myself internally angry towards them when around them because of these factors. Also, they have taken the liberty of commenting on my weight in the past, which I didn't like. Does anyone have tips for getting along with in laws like this?

So you're a conservative woman who chose to marry into a family of aging hippie swingers. Curious. They're not going to change clearly but if your husband were as upset by this as you are he wouldn't be exposing either one of you to this. You may just be stuck (but again, YOU put yourself into this situation by marrying him).

They're just miserable people. Hopefully, in time your husband will come around.

Stop going over there. You can't reason with people like that. Don't even try!
