In law questions

My in laws struggled themselves to have children before and after my partner was born with several miscarriages and double bereavement then finally his sibling was born seven years after him. So my question is why do these parents idolise his underachieving brother and daughter in law and their over confident, cheeky, jealous, demanding child over their older hard working son and 2 other grandchildren?
A bit of a background, as the dil I'm self sufficient, expect the best behaviour (and respect for the next generation from my kids) hard working and the reason for asking for your opinions is due to my voluntary work as a learning mentor/listening ear and a lady
with severe depression asked me an almost identical question and I was stumped to give an answer so I'm keen to hear others experiences and opinions.

You post sounds like it should be in "Relationships" this area is for people researching family history/genealogy. You can report your post to have it moved or just repost there. (Oh and it sounds a bit like a Toxic family - and you can't expect logic there.)

OP your description of your BIL/SIL and their son isn't very nice at all.
There must be a huge back story?

I'm struggling to see why you've made a connection between how long/difficult it was for them to conceive and their treatment of their adult children & grandchildren now - I don't see the connection?
