There are so many stereotypes about mothers-in-law and their relationships with their children's spouses. Often they don't approve, but that is to be expected. They believe their kids are the best in the world, so who could measure up?

Many will just see them as mere suggestions and choose to go out of their way to interfere in every situation. Sound familiar?
