Nowadays many daughters-in-law often complain aboutunfulfilled relations with the mother of her husband, claiming literally that her mother-in-law "got it." And this expression is often pronounced not only by those who just got married and did not have time to adapt to new relatives, but also those who already have quite a decent experience. What to do in a situation where the second mother simply does not give life and constantly interferes with her necessary and unnecessary advice? One thing is clear: if you "got" your mother-in-law, then you should not suffer anymore, because if you do not limit this intervention in time, then it will only get worse.
To begin with, when an adult married couplelives with parents in one house, which does not belong to them, then almost always there is a lot of difficulties. Previously, when people lived in large families, in which there were at least three generations, such questions arose, but were smoothed out by the fact that under such conditions the majority lived, and this situation was generally accepted. The status and influence of each family member depended on his age. Now everyone is striving for independence, and therefore such conditions for most young people are unacceptable. That is why, in order not to "get" the mother-in-law, initially it is necessary to plan a separate life, regardless of the parents both from the husband and from the wife. Let it be a rented inexpensive apartment, let it be difficult, but no one will prevent you from building your own family happiness.
What should I do if my mother-in-law "got it"? Practical tips
The probability that the daughter-in-law and the mother of her husband will becomewonderful friends, the same as the likelihood that they will turn into irreconcilable enemies. The real cases when they can not get along together, in fact, very little, and if they occur, they are linked either to mental disabilities, or to a pathological loop on the son. All other cases can and must be overcome. If the mother-in-law "got out", first of all you need to try to summon her to a frank conversation. Try to put yourself in its place.
