Humans are generally protective of their loved ones especially with the get the idea that they stand to be replaced by someone else.
Ladies, can you live with your Mother-in-law?
The incessant clashes between wives and mothers-in-law caused the nickname 'Monster-in-law' to be created.
This attitude in many people causes them to be overprotective and meddlesome, often leading to clashes over the third party.
Mother-in-laws and wives are no exceptions to this territorial display. The age old clashes of Mothers-in-law and wives might have even been the reason the word 'Monster-in-law' was coined.
Anyway, a lot of wives find it increasingly difficult to live with their mothers-in-law, while many women out of affection, want to spend time with their married son, especially when is he is either a beloved one or the only child.
Seeing how this has caused clashes between the two parties, wives and mothers-in-law tend to avoid having to put up with each other, maintaining a safe distance while retaining a relationship with the man.
This is not to say all mothers-in-law and wives always go at each other at every chance they get. A lot of families especially the more social African communities tend to have the mothers-in-law and wives coexist peacefully, even forming a bond like mother and daughter.
This therefore proves that it's a usually a case of personality and difference of opinion that makes the women clash, and not because of their roles in the life of a man.
That being said, what is your opinion? Can you live with your mother-in-law?
Let's find out what some ladies have to say.
