MUST YOU LIKE YOUR MOTHER IN LAW IN ORDER TO HAVE A GREAT MARRIAGE?
Well mother in laws are a must like! Many women often get this wrong, but it is both unkind and unwise to approach a relationship with your mother-in-law from a place of resentment and rivalry without even meeting her yet!
When you do this, you take away the potential to begin on a good note with her and that could taint your relationship forever. You should even count yourself fortunate if that does not end your relationship with her son. There is no doubt that some mother in laws are genuinely spectacular people who do not fit the description of bad mother in law that is painted in our society and social media.
If you approach her with an open mind and discover that she is a nice person then you will most like gain yourself a friend and a mother as well..
But some mother in laws are not that nice. Some are jugdemental and over protective of their sons especially when they do not like who their son is married to.
If this is the kind of woman your man’s mum turns out to be, it will be a little difficult to love her as she’ll frustrate every or most of the attempts you make and it’s OK to not kill yourself trying to love her.
However, you cannot disrespect her. Don’t even try to.
Being an unfair human does not change her position as your spouse’s mother and even if it’s impossible to love her, she forever deserves nothing but respect and anything short of that at any time may have far-reaching consequences on your relationship with her son.
