I read a response on here that said they believe a lot od time Mils get the short end of the stick and I was truly shocked reading that because I can’t figure out how anyone could come to that conclusion. It always seems like I’m reading on here about MIls butt in too much or treat the DIL like shit so naybe I’m missing something but I would love an example where this is the case where they receive the short end of the stick.

Well, think about it: On this board it’s generally young women relating their experiencew, so MILs become the devil. If there were a Mother-In-Law board I’m sure we’d see some very different versions of the same stories. It’s all dependent on you point of view.
There’s one current thread that I’d be willing to bet has another side to the story.

soexcited123 : Short end of the stick could imply the differences between how someone treats their Mother-In-Law vs their Father-In-Law. Taking a wild guess but 7/10 In Law Bashing posts are centered around the Mother-In-Law, so you can imagine that there are couples who are cool with dad but really cold towards mom (warranted or not).
