Be so sickly sweet nice to them they don't know whether you are being sarcastic or telling the truth. I LOVE saying to my mother-in-law "oh Mom your are so funny" this said with a sweet smile when she knows and I know I don't find the old bag funny at all but my father-in-law thinks I am so nice which infuriates the old bag Ha ha!

Speak to them honestly. In-laws are people too. Just speak up, and speak your mind, but don't be rude yourself. Call it like you see it.

My inlaws have always been rude to me. I usually try to limit the time that I have to spend with them. I find that refusing to let them see that I'm upset will sometimes help. "Kill them with kindness". No matter what they do, be sweet and pleasant. That way, you haven't added to the problem.

I am not sure what you mean by rude. If it is comments towards you or whatever, just give your spouse a big kiss in front of them and tell your spouse how much you love him/her. Best of luck.

Walk away and act like I didn't see it. It seems to make them proud to see they have hurt you in some way. I don't know why. I guess they feel you took away their baby and any decision they make is the result of you having married them. That at least is the problem I have. My mother-in-law thinks her son doesn't speak to her because I don't want him to because of what she has done to me, when really I encourge my husband to stay civil because of how important family is to me. He tells me that I should be more upset then I am and that he isn't going to put up with any one insulting his wife. Really all you can do is let it go, because you will always be the wrong one and they will always be right in their minds and so to keep the peace you need to just let them get the opinions out and ignore it completely.
