Why are Indian mother-in-laws so problematic?
On the contrary though, I once came across a wonderful mother/daughter-in-law relationship in Udaipur some time back. They were seriously "best friends". I asked her about her relationship and she told me that her mother in law does not get involved in their personal matter, gives advice ONLY when asked and gives her daughter in law freedom to enjoy her life as she pleases..... As a result, being so happy and all, their relationship grew into true friendship, with mutual respect and the giving of space/maintenance of privacy.
Is this rare?
