A post in one of the other chats mentioned about how things have changed in the Mother in Law/ Daughter in Law dynamic and it got me thinking.
My Mother in Law hated me before we even met and I was never good enough for her boy. I tried really hard for about 20 years to be what she wanted and only really succeeded in making myself miserable ( she was miserable anyway ).
I only have Son in Laws and I think that the relationship is far easier to manage but have no experience of Daughter in Laws so wonder others have experience that its that's not the case.
From what I read it seems that sometimes Grandparents with Daughter in Laws really do struggle down to the point of being estranged.
I felt when I first married that i HAD to make my Mother in Law happy . Has that all changed?
I'd be very interested to hear your views.
