Nearly 60 percent of all marriages suffer from tension with mothers-in-law, normally between the wife and her husband’s mother. For too many women, the statement “I married him, not his family” seems more a wish than a fact.
This hands-on manual makes it possible to reclaim the husband-wife relationship while surviving – and even improving – the frequently tumultuous relationship with a mother-in-law. The Daughter-in-Law’s Survival Guide offers solutions for handling boundary issues, criticism, child-rearing disputes, and nonsupportive partners.
The book teaches women to identify and analyze relationships, change thinking and behavior patterns that feed a dysfunctional dynamic, overcome chronic areas of conflict, and prevent new battles from breaking out.
