A few hours ago when I was cleaning I saw the scrapbook that I made for my late mother in-law, she was very beautiful and has a good smile. I never met her because she was died when my husband is turning 15 years old. Even though I never met her personally lots of her friends, students, relatives, children and even my father in-law said that she was a great woman. According to her students she was very caring and understanding teacher. Her friends said that she was very charming, open minded and a good singer. Her relatives and siblings said that she was always think about the safety of her family and a good daughter. Her children said she was a very lovable mother, understanding, a good cook and a good homemaker. And my father in-law said that she was the most beautiful and kind woman she ever met. Sometimes I wonder, what if she is still alive maybe we have a good relationship and he can teach me how to cook all the favorate foods of my husband. Maybe she will always be there for us when some people try to put us down. Or maybe she will always protect us from those people whose trying to destroy our relationship. Now,maybe we can't see her but she is always watching and guiding us everyday especially my husband because he was her little baby. How about you my dear fellow mylotters, can you tell me something about your mother in law?

Hi, It is so nice when people are taking nice things about those whom we haven't met/ seen. No doubt your mom in law was a sweet and mature caring lady and know how to handle the people around her with love/care. My Mother in law, i call mummy and she is another kind person and we have a good understanding developed over 15 years. Now she has full of praises for me and she feels i am the best match for her son. She invite us often to her place in the same city and these days she won't forget to make my favorite snacks during my visits to her. I appreciate her activeness at 76 and she manages her own time well taking time off for the temple activities and her own circle of friends.

Thats heart warming Bhebelen14. My mother-in-law is a cook though he never had a formal training. She got that mastery through her mother. She cooked for us when she is here. I have no trouble connecting to her. She is brave and caring mother. For sure, your mother-in-law is happy watching you guys.

I live in a joint family with my father in law mother in law , me my husband and my sister in law. One and a half year old is my marriage. But my experience with my mother in law is not as good as i wanted it to be. She always complaining about my work. She used to scold me from the very first day of my marriage. I never saw her satisfied with my work. I m a educated woman and always led a good life. I had many good frenz and good environment around me during my school and college days so never expected this kind of behaviour from her. When i got engaged she used to speak sweetly and politley. Me and my frends thought that i m going to have a good time with her. Even my family was unaware of her behaviour but soon after marriage she started showing her hatred towards me. She always used to find mistakes in my work, earlier i thought that i might have done some mistake so i always tried to improve that. After putting so many efforts and trying hard, i really improved and everybody in the house appreciating me but she then too was not happy. She also get sad whenever she see my husband and me talking together.and if we go out for shopping. She has so many rules and regulations that its really not easy for me to live accordingly. Many times i tried to make her soothe by doing lot of work and helping her but failed. I dont know why is she doing this kind of behaviour with me. Everytime she taunts me also even in public. This behaviour of her is really not tolerable to me anymore but because my father in law and other family members are supporting me so i am not taking any step further. Now i can only hope for the best . Hope she will change attitude towards me.

Hi lalitcarpeter, your so very kind and have a long patient with your mother-in-law's attitude. I think she just jelous or envy to you since more of the attention of her son is all yours now. I am glad that your father in law and other family members are supporting you and I will also hoping that one day she will change and treat you like her own daughter. Thank you for sharing.
