    Hi Malini,

    Very nice and thoughtful post.
    I read it a year back and followed it.. but it didn't worked up for me !!!
    • Do not bad mouth her in front of your husband
    • I never said anything about her with my husband.... but she kept on doing it and I failed. If i never told him about her, she always went on cribbing and my relation with my husband became tensed and flawed. I feel conversation should be two sided.
    • Do not rise to the baits which she will throw your way by way of comments on cooking, housekeeping, saying how much weight her son has lost since marriage etc.
    • Still i feel.. you should give her a proper and strict answer at that point only. If she is thoughtful and understanding, she will mend her ways.
    • Do not discuss your personal relationship with your husband with her. You never know when she might use it as information to be used against you.
    • Thats' right
