I Cannot Stand My Mother In Law!
I know, i know, mother in laws can be a real pain in the you know what. Sometimes they have just cause and then there are times when they just do it because they can. This can be really hard to deal with and it could also put a strain on your relationship.
One thing that you have to realize is that when a mother gives birth to her child, from the moment he/she is welcomed into the world, the mother makes a vow within herself. Where she says that her baby will only have the best. That's all it is, she just wants the best for her child, and she will continue to want this forever.
So in walks you into her son's life, and at first glance you are not the woman whom she wants for her child. Sometimes, first impressions and never judge a book a book by it's cover, does not apply to Mother In Laws. On first sight they immediately judge you as being that person who is taking their little child away from them.
It's crazy, I know but you will have to work hard at proving to her that you are indeed right for her child. I know that you may think at this point, "Why do I have to prove to her that I am the right person for her son." If he is really close to his mother, then this is a very important measure to take.
If you are truly a good person and you have tried to do everything to please your Mother In Law and she still can't stand you, then maybe it is time to just let it go. As long as your man and your relationship are not affected by it, then just cut your losses and only deal with her when you have to. Especially if a child is involved.
Bottom line you have to really put yourself in her shoes and you can't do this unless, you have a child yourself. Maybe then you could understand how important your child is to you and how important it is to know who he/she comes in contact with.
A mother does not strive to become a Mother In Law, but being a bitch to you does seem to be the ultimate goal.
Ah, the woos of marriage, what a blissful exchange! Ha, Ha, Ha!!!!!
