    I was going to say to the last caller that Love languages is really enlightening. I feel the same way as he does about gift giving. I have never appreciated a guy who gives me things, because it always looks to me as if he is trying to buy affection, whether or not it is true. Also acts of service (unless needed) always makes me think he is assuming I need his help when I don’t, or that he is just making himself feel needed. My #1 love language is quality time, then physical touch and affirmation. Gift giving and acts of service are almost a total waste of energy. Spending quality time with someone tells them you want to be with them, while the other languages can be faked.

    Madaline, it sounds like it’s time to suggest and also make an appointment with a counselor, you need as much help as your daughter in law, and son. I understand the frustration and pain that’s being caused by her actions, something needs to be done and very soon. Of course you love your son and what the best outcome for his marriage but you cannot do it alone or without trusting God. I pray that your son takes your advice as well as your daughter in law and things begin to work out for the better in your family.
