Do you know one thing that the strongest man fear to do?
…make a guess…
It is talking back to his mother-in-law.
I believe many married men shared my cup of tea. Not just married men. Does any boyfriend dares to defy his girlfriend’s mother?
(My colleague once quoted…wedding rings are the smallest hand-cuffs that you can find.)
One of the greatest challenge, based on research, is maintaining the relationship between the spouses and the in-laws.
This challenge’s difficulty escalates especially just before marriage when the in-laws may have regarded the bride or groom to be their children and start to think they have rights to treat or even discipline them as their own children.
This is the part when situation becomes trickier.
I still remembered when I fetched my bride, even before I had done so, my mother-in-law exclaimed in excitement to tell me to call her “Mommy”.
It was hard as in my eyes, I only have one mommy who is my real mommy.
Still, up till now, I called my mother-in-law mommy just to satisfy her and my tone was formal when I addressed her.
It was hard to call someone mommy or daddy when you are not ready. Some of my married friends took a month or two to get familiar or comfortable. Some took a few years. Some never did.
Hmmm…still in a married life, this is just one of the many exciting challenges getting to be conquered by us…lets us get ready…>.
