Men Love Their Mother-in Laws But Many Women Hate Theirs
Men don't complain about their mother in laws but many women hate their mother-in laws. It's a bit confusing.
When a man's mother-in-law does something for them, he and his wife are thankful but when the women's mother-in-law does something, she is interferring with the marriage. It's a bit confusing.
I have 2 sons and 2 daughter-in-laws. I treat them exactly the same. Son #1's wife Sandy feels I am interferring, but son #2's wife Beth often hugs me and tells me that I am the best MIL in the world and tells me that she is so lucky to have a MIL like me.
It's just a bit confusing for me ?
Son #1's wife often complains about me to her husband/my son and exaggerates about everything. An Example: One day I had some photos developed and when I returned home with them, I asked my friend and both daughter-in-laws if they wanted to see my prints...but Sandy (son # 1's wife) said she didn't want to see them and din't join us in viewing the photos. Beth (son#2's wife)was interested in seeing them and while we were looking at the prints liz asked for copies of a few photos. I told her I would be happy to make copies for her. Later that evening my # 1 son informed me that he and his wife Sue were angry with me because I didn't ask Sue if she wanted copies of the photo's.
Now, I never thought to offer son # 1 wife Sandy copies ...because she was not interested in seeing them and she did not make an attempt to view the photos....My #1 son goes along with anything his wife suggests.
Son #2's wife does not complain about me to her husband/my son and I have witnessed that she corrects him if he speaks to me in a wrong tone of voice. He too goes along with whatever his wife suggests.
I continue to try and love son#1's wife but she won't let me love her.
There is a lot of mother-in-law bashing on this site. I hate it because I live it and it is not my fault.
We mother-in-laws are the same people whom raised the son's these girls fell in love with....and just why is it that all men have kind mother-in-laws, but many women have awful, sick, mean and even EVIL mother-in-laws? Pretty harsh language for a regular everyday hard working mother huh?
Perhaps mothers whom raise girls are nicer people, but I also raised 2 daughters...so that's not it. My daughters complain about their mother-in-laws too. I always tell them that they need to look for the good in people and not the bad in people because if we focus on bad qualities, we will surely find them.
I am a confused MIL? Can someone shed some light on this matter? Do all son's think their mother-in-laws are nicer than their own mother.
