hi. is your mother-in-law-is like typical mother-in-law or she is like your own mother. i mean , its usually seen that mother in-law's are more possesive about their son and some times it's hard for them to accept another lady in their son's life. does she treats you differently or little bitter with you some times? what kind of relationship you have with her? is she you mother-in-law or like mother?

Although i don't have my mother in law yet, hope I'm welcome to answer this question! I wish my mother law to be is most likely as my mom..I have read a lot of stories between a mother in law and a daughter in law and son in law, relationship,majority of mother in law and son/daughter in law not having a good contact or let say a harmonious relationship. I can remember my mom keeps telling " A mother in law should be respected more than you respect a your own mom..".So this word from my mom make me wish a harmonious relationship with my mom in law (in the future)..I hope she will not feel I taking her son attention towards her, i hope she will not even jealous about me and her son, and most of all i hope she will not step in a way that she know she will hurt me.. I wish she could be a second mother to me,not to hesitate about anything..ANyway we may not know but i keep praying for this.,,just hope ..Who knows!! Happy myLotting!

hi ksmita well my mother_in_law always lived in Washington state and we lived in Arizona at that time.we did go to visit her once and she turned out to be a lovely lady who I enjoyed very much.Maybe because we were not able to see each other all the time, we got along splendidly. But I had the feeling that I would have gotten along fine with her, a lot l ike with my own mom. I liked her very much, and she was always most pleasant with me. no problems at all.

Living separately or being far from each other is a good way to avoid conflicts from a mother in law and a daughter/son in law, the relationship will not be as hot as ever.You will surely treasure and give importance every moment when time will come that you have to get together .

We can't deny it. Mother-in-laws will never be our real mothers. No one can replace our real mothers who loves us no matter what. Anyway, I felt a little awkward when I met my mother-in-law for the first time.I'm sure she felt the same way too. The first meeting was like hi and hello, how are the kids ( I'm happy she asked for the kids and she's very concerned ) and it ended there. I will also understand if she doesn;t like me that much for her son considering that my husband's her favorite but I would like to believe that she is a good person and that she will eventually accept the fact that her beloved son is now married and that marriage is the vocation he has chosen.

My mother in law is extra special, in fact I told my husband (in a joke) that if we ever break up I would get her in the divorce. She is funny, and sweet and the kids love her. She passes judgement on no one and she is very nurturing. I love her.
