My parents are visiting me from India. Dad - 60 Year old and Mom 51 year old.
They have had a long history to unhappy marriage due to having totally opposite personalities and not being able to agree on anything. My mom pretends to be pious and wants everyone to be religious and preaches backward practices. My entire family resists and my father openly flirts with girls, saying your mom pushes me towards it.
I had requested them not to fight on their visit, since I am already dealing with a lot of work stress. My dad respects that but my mom doesn’t seem to understand.
My mom constantly keeps nagging him and
tries to control his eating at the dining table, taunting him on his habits etc., she brings his complains to me and looks at me as though I am going to solve something for her...
I just accidentally stumbled on sexting in my dad’s phone also saying every man likes his children and others wife. What’s disgusting is that this conversation is with someone who approached with a marriage proposal for his kid and started right after he returned from pilgrimage at age 58.
Though my fathers actions are worse, he keeps silent on my moms taunts and is well behaved and my moms behavior gets on my nerves and I end up shouting at her.
Me the oldest of their kids at 33 years still resents marriage and still single with no sight of any relationships. None of my siblings 27+ of age have any sight of healthy relationships and having to deal with parents love life...
It’s eating my peace of mind, how do I deal with it? What am suppose to do??
I am sorry if I am adding to the misery here but this might paint a picture for non-indians towards india.
