Mother-In-Law : “We don’t like each other”.
Daughter-In-Law: “I never said that. I don’t know why you don’t like me”.
Mother-In-Law: “I don’t know why I don’t like you either”.
IF that was a conversation had between a mother-in-law and a daughter-in-law and that DIL was the sole caregiver for that MIL’s son I would be appalled. I wouldn’t blame the DIL for being absolutely blown away and hurt. I wouldn’t be surprised if the DIL spent some days crying and sleepless night wondering what else she could do to earn a little respect from the MIL. I would expect the DIL to be shattered by the statement. I wouldn’t expect the DIL to forgive such a cruel and heartless comment very quickly. hypothetically…
