Created this poll to find out how people felt about Future Mother-In-Law, but I’m sad to read that so many people like their future mother in law more than their own mother.
I had a rocky road with my own mother, so I understand the difficulties. Must say, however, that becoming a mother gave me a totally different perspective. And helped ease some of the anger I felt. My daughter is now a teenager. You won’t make the same mistakes your own mother did – just a whole set of different mistakes. Keep in mind that your own relationship with a daughter may not be smooth, either.
The truth is, it is a lot easier for your Future Mother-In-Law to be your friend, than it was for your mother to be your mother. Your Future Mother-In-Law did not have to live with you on a daily basis through your teen years or tell you to clean up your room, brush your teeth, etc.
