Like, maybe you had a positive relationship with them until you got engaged. Then, when it came to wedding planning, your future in-law turned out to be seriously controlling, and it continued into your marriage. And eventually, things got so bad, you had to walk away.

Perhaps you always had a rocky relationship with an in-law who was jealous that you "took" their child away from them. Then, your spouse ended up picking sides and leaving the marriage.

Maybe your in-laws had noooo boundaries whatsoever, and you never had time with your spouse and kids, and it took a major toll on your relationship. And while you're still married, you're still trying to navigate the situation.
