Almost all married women will have at least one horror mom-in-law story to tell. I’m not married (yet) but so far, no one seems to have anything nice to tell me about their in-laws. Whenever anyone hears that I will be staying with my in-laws I will surely hear a loud “GASP!” followed by wide-eyed expressions and a “ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO DO THAT??”.
Among many other responses from the ladies would be “You’ll hardly get any privacy you know”
“She’ll butt into every single conversation, discussion, argument that you have with your husband! It’ll be a three person marriage!!”
“You’d better have sound-proofed walls then, otherwise she’ll know EVERYTHING and bring it up during family gatherings”
“Mom-in-laws expect A LOT from live-in daughter-in-laws! You won’t even get to sleep in on weekends or spend quality time in your room that much”
“Rumah dia kan, nanti semua benda kena ikut cakap dia, nak buat pape pun takleh”
“Nak bangun lambat pun takleh nanti, mesti kena bising”
“Kau tak tau masak kan? Habis laaa….”
and the all time favourite…
“Ooohh…that sucks. Good luck.”
Trust me people, NONE of that makes me feel any better!! But I’m sure that not all mom-in-laws are like that..right? I mean, it can’t be THAT bad, can it?
*trying to forget the sharing-my-experience session with future-sister-in-law a.k.a daughter-in-law number one*
Well, it’s not like I have any other choice so I might as well make the best of it, besides..she’s been pretty nice to me so far..
Anyway, I thank God that my future Mom-in-law is not as evil as the woman who sent the wedding invitation card below!
(praying real hard)
