The daughter-in-law mother-in-law relationship is usually a complicated one. Because most women do not have a pleasant experience with their mother-in-law’s, some unmarried ladies go to the extent of praying for a good mother-in-law. We have good ones, but the bad ones are quite common, making you feel like you begged their son to marry you. Dealing with a toxic mother-in-law is not an easy task. You need patience and tolerance. We are going to give five signs your mother-in-law is toxic. So, if the other love of your husband is exhibiting these signs, you should find a solution, so you do not lose it.
She Makes You Feel Like The Family Is Doing You A Favour
When you have a mother-in-law who continually tells you things like ‘you should be glad that he finally married you,’ ‘I wish he married Bimpe’s daughter; she is such a smart girl and her parents are comfortable’ and so on. If she continually trolls you this way, dropping hints left and right on why you are not the right person for a child, you are dealing with a toxic woman.
She Never Admits That She Is Wrong
A toxic woman will do a lot of bad stuff to you, she will insult you and might even insult your parents, and when you react, she will never admit that she did anything wrong. Instead, she will face your parents for not ‘bringing you up properly,’ and she will still pass the message across to your husband. Don’t expect her to say sorry; it is not in her repertoire.
She Never Takes Your Opinion
She believes that you do not have any valuable or reasonable thing to say. She doesn’t care about what you think. She goes on to do as she pleases without your consent. She is willing to go the extra mile to prove that your opinion does not matter.
She Tells Anyone Who Cares To Listen That You Are A Horrible Person
A toxic mother-in-law recruits’ people to her #ihateyou gang. She tells everyone who cares to listen that you are not well brought up, and you are no good for her son. Nothing you do seems right. She tells them that you are the one taking her son’s attention from her, and it is because of you that things are not going well with her son.
She Is Nice To Others
Nobody believes that she is not a good person because she is charming to others, but when it has to do with you, the story changes immediately. One disadvantage of this is that when you try to talk to someone else about her behavior, which you do not like, no one believes you. Remember, she is friendly and kind to others and not you.
