MIL driving me CRAZY (vent)

Re: MIL driving me CRAZY (vent)

  • This is kind of icky.  You shouldn't be "taking care" of a husband

     

    Actually, I think I disagree with this statement.  I believe that being in a marriage means taking care of each other.  And while that may not mean taking care of a spouse the way a mother would take care of a young child, it does mean "caring for".  My husband does NOT expect me to take care of him in a motherly way, in fact, it's quite the opposite. 

    But thanks for your input.

  • right, but the way it's framed to his mother, it's icky.  Of course in a marriage you take care of each other, but it's not a pissing contest w/ a mother.

    I have seen Indian relationships first hand.  I know how much a mother dotes on her son, and she's gonna expect you do it too.  It's not healthy.
