Father-in-law hates me
Granger Smith Podcast Episode 81 - What would you do if you were young and just got engaged with the love of your life BUT, you don't have the father's approval? In fact, he doesn't even like you. What would you do? This is one of many questions I tackle on this week's podcast with my brother Parker Smith.

    You don't marry the person, you marry the Family. If your soon-to-be Spouse will be your support, your Rock in everything. If by chance it's not about you but their Parent with the problem. Your Soon-to-be Spouse realizes their Parent/'s has a Narcisist personality and more importantly understands the behavior of a Narcisist Parent your relationship will be tough as another, but will be stronger. Marriage is like a triangle God-Husband-Wife. Negative outside influences will destroy the Marriage.

    This was my second Q & A Podcast of yours and I have to say your advice in most cases is pretty straight and true to a common theme, which is to "keep your own room clean" and let your best life come to you. For the younger folks watching I can say I wish I had lead my younger life in more the fashion you describe. I was going to kick the world in and rule it early on. Using a football analogy, I was the type of person who if stopped on offense was going to kick the field goal regardless of field position - punting the ball away to the opposition was not going to be an option. As we all know...the other team (the world) gets the ball either way and you are left with the havoc you created on the first three plays of your last possession. Hope that makes sense to somebody. Life is short...find your way to enjoy the journey letting your best life come to you.

    Well this is funny. Was with my ex for ten yrs and her pops never liked me cuz I was a man who she now came to for advice and things. So he deviated a plan to get her away from me and it worked and she fell for it hook line and sinker. This is how bad it was. When her family comes over to get her stuff. He was walking out the door last and looked at me and smiled and said I GOT YA. I wish I had footage. She would never believe me or listen. It was unreal

    Depending on the content of the fathers character, I'd do whatever it takes to earn his respect, if I can earn his respect, it isnt worth earning. I don't consider myself a good oerson, but I sure the hell strive everyday to be one.

    You answered my question in this episode and it just made my day! I've gotten behind in keeping up with The Smiths and the podcast but the timing of watching them all today was such a God thing! What Amber was saying in the last couple Arises combined with this episode and the answer to my question was exactly what I needed to hear today. Plus, my birthday is tomorrow so this is almost like an unintentional early birthday present! Thank you for taking the time to answer it and give me your advice!

    Live life by the "Golden Rule" Leviticus 19:18 "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". I taught my kids the truth is always easier to remember than lies. And people do not become "adults" when they turn 18, they become adults when they except responsibility for everything they think, say and do. Peace and Gods blessings on you all.

    This episode made me think of the movie The Zookeeper starring Kevin James. Throughout the movie the character is changing his ways to impress the girl he wants. In the end he finds out he hates the person he's become and returns to his old self and forgets the girl he was trying to impress. He then finds the girl that was meant for him

    your opening comments about the girls father. This all happened to me.. my now ex husband didn't ask my fathers permission because he knew he'd say no. my whole family HATED him. We had a trying relationship, bought a house together in the first year of dating, he proposed a year later, and then he changed into a totally different person. But we were "stuck" because of the house so whats one more document linking us together. the day of our wedding his groomsmen were hammered, his own parents straight up told me to not go thru with it. we made it just shy of 2 years married, he had always wanted more kids, he had one prior to me, an then didn't want more kids. the month after our wedding i had a miscarriage and he went on a weekend bender while i miscarried our baby. When the divorce was final i had a "party" and his parents and best friends showed up to help me celebrate! After so much suffering and hardship i came to realize that i needed to be treated that bad to know that i truly deserve better and a good man. Now 2.5 years later I'm with an amazing man that my family loves and it will be a great celebration when we get married. LONGSTORY short, is there a reason her family doesn't like you, so you sincerely love their daughter. I wouldn't go thru with it until you have peace on the situatiion and know it will be a happy event and not a total night mare. miserable your whole life or move on.

      I think it depends on the situation. Not EVERY family will love your future spouse. Think about it, they are marrying their little girl. My family didn’t love my husband at first, but we have 3 beautiful boys and a roof over our head. They know now what I saw. Now they love him more than me 😂.I don’t think just because your family or friends don’t like someone should be the end all. At the end of the day YOU are the one that will create a life with them. Just my opinion 🥰🥰🥰🥰

    No one is going to get a Fathers approval for his daughter. You'll see in a few years. Girls really want a man like ed their father. Now the same is for a Mother and her son! Funny isn't it! I am a single parent of both a girl and a son! So at first I didn't know about my daughter's boyfriend until he grabbed her through over his knee and spanaked her! Yes that did happen and Loved him since what a great husband and parent he truly is. And can keep her under control! Now my Son's wife knew she was ok was at Christmas when he had a Hope Chest made for her. Her reactions and true feelings were open for all to see, it was what Love looks like to me. Now two boys later and she workes side by side on th he farm and jobs plus helping Coach little league with my son. Both are wonderful parents and my son is my Father at his age. My dad is now 90 and still going strong he was the Father my children never had. Their dad was a true evil nightmare I was raised to stay Divorce was never an option. But that is not true in all cases it was leading to killing one of our kids or me, he had to go. I had to stop the cycle of abuse, I was lucky to get away and watch my kids become Children. He was never a problem for us within 6months he remarried and left us alone. The kids were 5&6. My daughter can't remember her childhood or his abuse, my son remembers it all. It's sad he never could love them. I never seen him angry and he never touched me until our wedding night. 10 years but oh how much better our lives turned into. I wish I would have paid more attention to his family before I married him. I would never have married him. We have to look past the one we love to how the family truly is. Waiting for approval usually takes less time than we think and it does matter in the long run.

    When your talking to Sean, around 39 min into the podcast, since he has been praying about it & God hasn't given him an answer or hasn't lead a girl to him, then maybe the answer is No for this girl. Sometimes when God doesn't answer, accept this as a No & that God is looking out for your best interest. You are correct in telling Sean to work on himself.

    My husband's mom hated me. But she was a screwed up. We got better after we got together when I was 13 years old. Hubby was 17. My family was very careful about times we were together. We had to have someone else with us. At 16 I asked him to marry me. My family were ok with that as they got to love him as i did. Married at 19 years old , 2 children and 4 grandchildren 36 years later. We're happy family and With God in our lives and hearts. Hard times come and go. Love is worth going through. God bless, some people work. Xoxo 🥰😘😘❤❤❤❤🇹🇻

    More Parker - always happy to have Parker on. He's just got such great stuff to say, and I appreciate how he makes us think. Loved his statement that the young lady was looking for the grandfather of her grandchildren. That perspective totally changes the way one looks at the search for a mate. Also love the fact that y'all read Brene Brown. She's got such great stuff in her books, interview, and Ted Talks, especially on the topic of vulnerability.

  • Michelle Kee

    I personally don’t care what another person had to say about my relationship if I’m happy. It’s not their place. Permission or not, the person you love should be able to make the decision about their own future. If they value this opinion more, then they should listen to it. If they don’t, they need to tell this person that they are happy and need to be supportive or not be involved in their life.

    I just have to say, IF my son-in-law would have been courteous enough to ask my blessing, I would have said yes. Now days hardly any male asks the parent for permission or blessing to marry their daughter. IF my daughter said she truly loved the man and wanted to marry him, then I would say "yes" because SHE would be the one that has to live with him, not me. I would be the one she would come running to if it didn't work out. I would be the one to help her rebuild her life. I would have just appreciated and respected if he would have asked me. But, even my daughter didn't believe in having him ask my permission.

    You and Parker are very inspiring and insightful for being so young. I'm happy that you open up and share so openly your struggles, what has worked for you and your hard "no" with the young people who follow you. My son is in his 20's and just seems to be lost. I give him his space, make positive comments when I can but blaming others is his go to. I will suggest he listen to you, not sure he will by I will pray that maybe he will listen once and find something that hits him deep in his soul that you talk about.

    I may be way off, so no need to argue with me. His first coarse of action before calling off the engagement is to ask his fiancé what her opinions are regarding the whole thing. After all , while you do marry into the family, it’s her he’s going to be living and sleeping with day in and day out.

    • Stephanie Martinez
      Stephanie Martinez

      I completely agree!! That was great advice, BUTTTT calling off the engagement would be hard on his future bride, IMO. obviously if the bride thinks he should talk to her dad then yes, but no need to call it off, just try and talk it out with his father in law.

    my late mother in law never liked me cause she was from Georgia and I was from Maryland, well I grew up in North Carolina but she wanted my husband to marry a Southern bell but he married a Yankee lol she thought i was a hippie but far from it, I was just a woman in love with her son, but I was a good mother to our six children and I was a good wife to my husband, but in her eyes I was not a southern bell so i was not good enough for her son. but I got saved when I was 33 and brought my children up in the Lord so I know she is up in heaven thanking God he married a woman of God and he is in Heaven too saying I told you so. ha ha ha anyway I have one daughter in law and have 4 son in laws, and I learn from my mother in law to pray for them and never get in the middle of their marriage. I stay out of there business and let God work it out. but the best thing you can do about your father in law and be a peace maker and pray for him. and like the word says love one another cause love can break that hate Jesus love
