Raise a toast if you are fated to be super lucky in the mother-in-law department! Mothers-in-law are the strangest people. When you see them you wonder how you can ever have loved them. When you don’t see them you wonder how you can live without them.
It’s hard to be happy when your mother-in-law is so mean and nasty. Let’s change the trend and appreciate her. We must put in efforts to change the image of a mother-in-law, usually portrayed in a negative light, just like the villain in a drama series.
