half of the questions did not even get an answer! Like the one about what the son/husband can do to help out doughter-in-law to make a clear statement that she is building her own family with her own rules. It makes me sick that this relationship has to be about domination... I don`t want to dominate anyone, I just expect a compromise, cause I am not going to allow anyone to dominate me, and make me grow to a sad, bitter mother-in-law one day...
