Do You Dislike Your Partner's Mom?

Do You Dislike Your Partner's Mom?

In a new book, relationship expert Dr. Terri Apter says that women are programmed to not like their mother-in-laws. She says, "Both mother and wife are struggling to achieve the same position in the family — primary woman."

The whole concept of women fighting each other for the man's attention is a little tired. How come we never hear about husbands hating their father-in-laws? I think a good relationship with your significant other's parents, mother included, is completely possible, but I guess the potential to butt heads is always there, too. Have you ever had a problem with your partner's mom? Feel free to share horror (or happy) stories in the comments!
