You may want to consider your wife’s family as being mentally ill and treat them that way. It may be narcissism, paranoid schizophrenia that sort of thing. It is a case of being somewhat aloof and detached from them. It is a matter of having good and effective boundaries against their abuse.

You need these boundaries for yourself, that is exceedingly important to your psychological and emotional health. So sit down and create yourself some boundaries. These are in essence rules which protect your values. And then sit down with your wife, discuss and create a set of boundaries that protect your family from your wife’s family.

The thing for you to do is to detach from your in-laws as much as you possibly can such that their words and actions do not hurt you.

Take a look at Relationship Book, Self Help Relationship Book For a Man, Best Manual for Men and create those boundaries. You may not even be aware of the need for boundaries for yourself and your family so take a look at http://talkaboutmarriage.com/mens-clubhouse/35517-four-stages-competence.html.
