I do text my FIL on holidays and his birthday. I have been in prayer asking the Lord to help me to forgive my FIL. There were things he did that I believe contributed to our separation.

I try to call my mother-in-law at least twice a month, but she barely wants to talk except about “the weather”. The other members of the family wrote me off after the divorce & act like I don’t exist.

It’s helpful to hear a discussion on this topic. There’s definitely not a one-size-fits-all solution to in-law relationships. It’s also important to note that interaction with in-laws changes with time and circumstances. In my case I’ve been blessed with a very good relationship with my in-laws through the years, but circumstances recently have created a rift. Now I have to seek to love them without much interaction at all and to seek wisdom to know if/when/how to try to re-engage with communication. For me I think it’s harder to forgive a couple of my in-laws than it is to forgive my wife.
