Is life with your mother-in-law a nightmare?  “She was angry about everything, she wouldn’t let me call her ‘mom'”

Is life with your mother-in-law a nightmare? “She was angry about everything, she wouldn’t let me call her ‘mom'”

Mother-in-law’s Day is celebrated on March 5. On this occasion, we asked our readers about their relationships with their partners’ mothers. Their experiences are different. – I once went out with my mother-in-law and another friend on Friday. The evening got so hot that we went dancing by the Vistula River. We finished the party at 3 a.m. – recalls one of them.

Mothers-in-law celebrate their international holiday on May 5. Mother-in-law’s Day, which began in the 1980s in France, may have funny associations. My mother-in-law is the “queen” of funny sayings, jokes, memes and anecdotes that often make us laugh until we cry. In some illustrations she is shown as a grumpy and malicious rival of her son’s wife who “knows everything best” and lectures her daughter-in-law about everything.

Mother-in-law – enemy or friend? Today we celebrate Mother-in-law’s Day

However, it is worth remembering that this is just a stereotype. Although there is no shortage of unpleasant mothers-in-law, there are also wonderful women among them who often become second mothers to their children’s husbands or wives. For example, they try to help take care of their grandchildren every day, and they are often great friends to their daughters-in-law. They share their life experience and there are also those who support their children’s families financially.

A mother-in-law can be a great support. “When I got married, I gained a new friend”

On the occasion of Mother-in-law’s Day, we decided to ask our readers what their relationship with their mother-in-law is like. An example of such a positive attitude is the mother-in-law of 31-year-old Ada. The mother of her husband and the grandmother of her two children is a real treasure. – We are homies – he admits bluntly.

I once went out with my mother-in-law and another friend on Friday. The evening got so hot that we went dancing by the Vistula River. Many people thought that me and my mother-in-law (that’s what I call her) were sisters and when they found out that we weren’t, they were very shocked. We finished the party at 3 a.m

– he says.

After we left, my husband said that he never would have thought that I would be partying with his mom until dawn. And the moral of this short story is that by getting married, apart from my other half, I also gained a new friend. Apart from partying, we go shopping together, get nails done, to the cosmetologist, etc.

– he says.

“I find it hard to believe the stories about monster mothers-in-law”

It is no different for 30-year-old Magda, who, together with her husband, raises a 3-year-old son. – My mother-in-law is super cool. She gave me such an example of being a cool “mom” that it’s hard for me to believe the various blood-curdling stories about mothers-in-law-monsters who put their son on a pedestal, insert themselves into the life of the whole family and contribute to the mass senseless and unsolicited advice. Especially when our baby was born, she helped us a lot. First, she saved him with soups when there was no time to even make a sandwich, and now she often comes by and takes care of the “babble”, and I hand him over to her care with total trust and without stress that something will happen to him – confesses Magda.

“When I gave birth to a child, she was already complaining about everything”

Of course, opinions are divided, because not every relationship with a mother-in-law is easy. Iwona, also a mother of two children, has a completely different experience in this context. “Now we have a situation where we have to live with my mother-in-law. My mother moved to us because we have a big house, and the thing is that she is getting old, so she needs help. But not enough to spare herself criticism at my address,” he writes. At the beginning, when she and her husband finally moved in on their own, she had already gotten used to it, but she recalls that it was not easy from the very beginning. They met 12 years ago and have been married for 4 years.

“When I was already 4 months pregnant with my first child, my mother-in-law pointed out all my mistakes and mistakes. She claimed that I didn’t take care of myself, the child, etc. She criticized me, and at first she didn’t allow me to call her ‘mom’. When I gave birth to a child, then she was angry about everything: I spoke badly, I didn’t change my diapers, I didn’t feed her well, she saw bad intentions in everything I did. I heard a lot of unpleasant words from her then. Now she has mellowed out a bit and although our relationship is relatively good, it is still not perfect. they definitely don’t belong,” says Iwona.
