What to do in this situation

My father in law along with his mother and sister used to abuse and beat my mother in law and my husband in his childhood. My husband had abusive childhood by his own father. My father in law is in abroad right now. My mother in law is so naïve so she is also in debt and even drowned money of my father in law. Now my father in law tells that my husband is responsible for all these debt when my husband was unknown about all these financial activities of mother of law. I didn't knew all these before marriage. My father in law calls my husband from abroad and always scold him telling he is useless and drowned all the money. Sometime I regret getting married in this family but since my husband is also a victim between these psycho people so I tried to support him. We even managed to pay 60% of debt but again that psycho father in law sings same song telling my husband useless and irresponsible.

Not a good way to live.

At some point they need to take responsibility for their own decisions otherwise they never learn the lessons from their mistakes

[@7960,Simplegirlstory] I think if it were me I’d be talking to my Husband about how best you can support him.
Because he’s the important one in this.

It would be easy to show your contempt and disgust but that may not help matters and might even complicate things unnecessarily.

Families are messy !
Some like to think they’re acting honourably when in fact they’re behaving badly.
And it’s often the poor children that have to deal with the consequences !
