People can be so strange sometimes!
Reading & quickchai 's post this morning, I realized that though we may live in different countries, some things are universal and one of those things is the relationship between daughter-in-law and her mum-in-law.
No matter how long a girl has been married and no matter how integral we are to their son's life, mum-in-law always has strong feelings about the place the daughter-in-law has in the family and that place is usually on the bottom rung of the ladder (family in this case)
It really is a thorny relationship no matter how much we try and I guess,. the other party also feels the same way.
(I changed the content of this post because it was written in heat of the moment and I later had second thoughts. We can never know how a person feels unless we walk in their shoes so I am changing the post. If some comments below seem out of context or irrelevant, it is my fault entirely).
