    tell both mothers to back off, it's much easier than you think. I learned that having the moms get involved caused so much drama, till I told both of them to "SHUT UP!" Yep, neither talked to me for a awhile but the got over it. or a nicer way, which didnt work for me was politely tell the mother in law, when I need your view I'll ask

    This is hard to answer without specifics. In general, it's always best to address the tension outside of the tense moments when everyone is calm. Incorporating chocolate or wine into the conversation couldn't hurt either.

    Dealing with In-Laws can cause considerable trouble in a marriage. The spouse must maintain control (or not) of this, his relation.

    When your spouse always rates you second to a problem In-Law, then your relationship to spouse is in danger.

    Counseling may work, but genrally letting status quo continue says, "I am willing to be a doormat". read more

    I think all relationships need boundaries.  Loving respect and communication is always best.

    i tell her to go home. we don't like each other so it works quite well. my wife keeps out of it because she loves us both and doesn't want to take sides.

    isn't a mother-in-law always a problem? lol

    There is a truth in the saying that you don't just marry your wife, you marry the whole family. You were warned!
