When we read that a new study's found that one in three women secretly loathe their mothers-in-law, we'd love to say we were shocked. But let's face it, the relationship between you and your other half's mother is often a little, well, fraught -- because both of you think you know what's best for the man in your lives and don't always like sharing him. In fact, 70% of daughters-in-law accuse M-I-Ls of exhibiting "unreasonably jealous maternal love". It's a situation which can ultimately destroy relationships as writer Anna Pasternak discusses in this week's issue: "The minute I was introduced to my ex-mother-in-law, our mutual hatred of each other was palpable," she admits. So do you know how Anna, and the other M-I-L-haters feel? Have you encountered one who out out-do Jane Fonda in Monster-in-Law? Or do you think you should do everything in your power to make his M-I-L your friend, no matter how tough a time she gives you? Let us know...
Do you have a monster-in-law?
