Does she only have sons? If so, she might just be using the other DIL as a point of reference to be able to relate to you better.

@wdbee2009:  Maybe she’s known the other DIL longer than you.  Instead of being jealous, work at getting in her good graces.

i can see how you would feel this way. 

Its hard to guess at what the situation really is, but try to look at it from other view points.

1) as PP said, its her way to relate to you by bringing up DIL as way to further the conversation

2) Maybe she talks/sees the other DIL more often so its just natural for her to bring her up.

3) She may do the same thing with her sons, but because they are not “in laws” they dont see it as a comparison that one is better, its just her communication method.

I’m in a similar situation. But maybe she mentions you to the other DIL all the time too??
