As a yet-to-be-married woman, I get a lot of advice from my already married friends ALL THE TIME… even when I don’t ask for it! While some advise me against marriage all together, others advise me to go into it with caution. Recently, a friend of mine, a much older lady who is in her mid-forties gave me a piece of advice that made me laugh until I cried! She told me, “If you must get married, marry a man whose mother is dead!” She was very serious and I truly believe that at the moment she was convinced that if her mother in-law was dead, her and her husband would be better off. And if that was the case, I wanted to suggest to her to either do the unimaginable or walk away….but I am smarter than that. So I just laughed it off!
Are you like my friend? Has your mother in-law frustrated you to the point of such a crazy thought? Or worse is having a living and healthy mother in-law a deal breaker? What’s your experience with you mother in law?
