My partner and my mother can never seem to get along. At special events like birthday and christmas they can always seem to get at each other over little pitty things. It just wreaks the whole day. Can anyone tell me if they experience this situtaion with there inlaws.

As far as I am concern, I didn't have any argument with my parents-in-law. You know why? And You know why? And here's another why? Because I don't understand them and they don't understand me lol! You know why? I speak English and they speak Chinese lol! Honestly, my in-laws are very kind to me and they love me very much. Sometimes my husband is a little jealous whenever my in-laws care for me so much. But I know he's just kidding he he he! I am blessed to have in-laws like my parents-in-law. :)

I experienced this situation first hand with my ex-husband. My parents and he did not get along, and his brother and I would start fighting if we so much as looked at each other. It took some work on my part to fix both situations. I talked to my parents and my spouse at the time, and let them know that they were ruining things for everyone else with their behavior. I advised them that I did not expect them to be best friends, but I did expect them to get along for an hour or two for everyone's sake. As for his brother, it took some time, but I started turning his nasty comments into funny situations for everyone by responding with quirky comebacks. He eventually took the bait and responded in kind. After a time, each situation and the parties involved were able to come to a truce and work together to make sure that get togethers were fun for all.

it happens baby. it is life . you cannot leave the partner. nor you can leave your mother. try to understand the two and you have a role to play to adjust the two since you know each others nature well.well it happens in every other family.the differences erupt but they have to be kept under the thumb.
