Oh!! she is really hard to get along with. It drives me crazy!!! She is good in twisting stories sometimes she made stories to tell other people about us... her husband' sisters. there are times that I gave her a blow of hot words... I don;t want to do this all the time. But it gives me stress every time she is making up things that are not true. did you experience this? do you have any idea of how to deal with this problem?

Relax and remember you are married to your sister in law(s). First of all I am sure your brother knows all about how his sister(s) are and can handle them. However with you reacting the way that you are when they do the things they do you are giving them all of the attention and notice that they want from you, they know they can light your fire and that you keep letting them. Next time your sister in law(s) say something to you or want to spread a rumor, HELP THEM say or by the way just say I did this or have you heard I did this??? and then just laugh and smile and hold your head up and walk away. Be the better person by not lighting the fire. If your husbands tells you that he will not do anything about it or that you are blowing it out of control , then maybe you should reconsider being married to him.. He should stand up for his family(meaning you) and tell him family to back off...

I understand the situation you are in. I have been in similar situations too. The way I see and the way I like all in-laws ( sister-in-law, brother-in-law, mother-in-law, father-in-law, uncle-inlaw, aunt-in-law, all-in-law)to see is that in-laws are real real relatives. When I have a sister-in-law, my brother's wife, I see her as my own sister, and value and love her as my own sister , equally as I love my brother ! I don't see her as somebody's wife ! Wish you happiness !
