He’s turned his rudeness on this little girl

Dear Amy: My wife’s parents have been married for almost 40 years. My father-in-law recently told my wife that he plans to divorce my mother-in-law and then move away.

He has not told his wife yet, but his unhappiness is obvious, due to the rude comments he frequently makes to her. He will openly criticize traits of hers that he doesn’t like, and he does it in a very disrespectful way.

My wife and I have been married for five years, but all of the family members I’ve met say my mother-in-law’s personality hasn’t changed over the years, so why this sudden harshness toward her?

My father-in-law has started making similar rude comments about our 2-year-old daughter, “Clara.” Clara has a big vocabulary and is very strong-willed. She can be demanding and will throw temper tantrums — just like any other toddler.
