Loving in-laws

I remember Peter mentioning that his mother in law loved him more than his mother. Well, Indian mothers in law do spoil their sons in law rotten most probably because they want their daughters treated well. And then I came across an Indian man who had nothing pleasant to say about his in-laws. I don't blame them, the guy was living off his wife. Today I could discern Porcospino's concern about her mother in law. Sharp contrast to the sentiments of my aunt's daughter in law. All Indian mothers in law are not rotten and all Indian daughters in law are not angels, notwithstanding what those television serials portray. I wish they would stop showing the mothers in law and daughters in law like India Pakistan. Then true nature would emerge perhaps. Now they get programmed into developing a mutual distrust. I just hope nobody becomes so heartless as to drag mother in law on street, or wait for her to die.

Through the years I'm beginning to get the feeling that my mother loves my wife more than me why not? They spend a lot of time in the kitchen together, they watch the same T.V. programs together, they raised my kids together, sew together, my wife watches over my mother when she's sick and sees to it the meds are complete etc..etc..while I did all the man's job

@caopaopao thank you, both women are traditional conservative Filipinas at home but quite the opposite when it comes to making money and helping in our family business, yes I feel so blessed to have both of them in my life. That's why I do my best im my role too.

Not sure where this is coming from, what you're basing this post from - is it a news story, or TV program? Mother's in law can be beasts, but that's my opinion based on how mine treated me.

Aw... I am sorry about your experience
The accused first thrashed her 75-year-old mother-in-law in her house and later dragged her on the village road.

@vandana7 The relationship between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law is very difficult to deal with. If their relationship is not handled well, bad things will happen.

I know many people who would kill their mother in law if we had no laws against murder. Indeed, there are softer alternative methods : to abandon her on the rest area of a motorway, to cut her phone and destroy her car, to lock her in a room with the complete collection of DVDs of George Clooney... I thought a lot at solutions like these for the mother of a girlfriend.

Now top...rest area of a motorway...how could you...LOL Destroying car could be fun though...you should have invited me...arson is criminal act, car destruction can be treated as a learning process. George Clooney? Blink...was she Clooney fan...sigh...no wonder. I feel for you...is that why you left that girlfriend?

I know sometimes there is conflict between in laws and daughter in laws. Of course you should do your best to ensure that your offspring are well cared for and looked after properly however this is not always the case. Humans can be quite inhuman to others and treat them abominably.

@vandana7 Shame on the person filming it but hopefully it will be used as evidence against the beastly woman. How can someone stand by and watch that kind of treatment happening! Disgusting isn't it Vanny!

@garymarsh6 The woman seems strong enough to attack others, and possibly has enough support around her from others who have resorted to similar acts. They all would jump in to trouble. The person who is filming it must have done it without the knowledge of the woman.

Oh no...that seems unfair. Should I arrange for one...you do need to know what having a mother in law around is like.

I think it is mutual respect which is needed....with the current generation and our generation I think we had and we have educated people who realize this thing and act accordingly to have a good relationship....which is applicable to any sort for that matter! Thanks!

But I do think that our movies and "saas bahu" type of serials (mother in law and daughter in law), we give an impression that they two are not exactly compatible. Mind gets that impression. One of the most pathetic scenes in the recent past has been

Yeah...I wish more Indians would read that and realize that it is the television programs and movies and Indian literature that is playing on their minds.

My mother in law (passed on) was just a great person. I was treated like a son even after I divorced her daughter.

I loved my mother in law and she loved me as I were her own daughter, but this is not very common in European countries. Usually in-laws are not very well accepted.

I just hope my son would find a wife someday that I can truly consider like my own daughter.
