I know mother in law cant take the place of mothers. Every married woman has the experience with mother in law. There are some who treat their mother in law like their own mother and the mother in law also seeing the love and affection and the respect the daughter in law gives treats her daughter in law as a daughter only. Both should be equal in thinking then only mother in law will treat the daughter in law as a daughter and the daughter in law will think her mother in law as a mother. I have seen some daughtes in law who feel that their mother in law cant be a mother and they dont confide in her mother in law. They feel their mother only is the best and also there are mothers in law who think that their daughters are the best and show difference between the daughter and daughter in law. I cant understand why this feeling is there for the mother in law and daughter in law. When in a site a person can become a mother to so many virtual daughters though they are not their own daughters why not mother in law become a mother to the daughters in law It hurts when the daughter in law does not respect her mother in law. There must be so many reasons for that. But always there is a difference shown between motherand mother in law Lucky are those mothers in law who get an adjusting and loving daughter in law. In some cases the daughter in law thinksher mothe rin law as her mother but mother in law does not feel so. One should be blessed to have a loving daughter in law and mother in law No relationship can be one-sided and unless the relationship is nurtured well by both, there will be always problems.
