Two mothers in a Jodhpur hospital gave birth to a boy and a girl baby around the same time it seems, and now the families of both the babies are refusing to accept the girl baby, both are fighting over the male baby. (News in Headlines Today on TV) Another baby-girl was found in a dustbin.
I just happened to read your blog and found that very useful. I have been going through a dilemma ever since i got married. I got married into a very so called modern family. My MIL treats me very well. But her treatment towards my parents disgusts me a lot. She always thinks she is superior to them.
She behaves very weirdly whenever they come and implies with her actions that she has more right be it on the house or on me.
On every occasion now and then, she keeps reminding me that daughter’s parents have lesser rights and that i should show more inclination towards my in laws which irritates me a lot. She fails to understand that the more she tries to distance my parents away from me the more closer I become to them and my relationship with her is the one which gets affected.
I am pregnant and before the child has actually arrived she has already given me a lecture about paternal grandparents rights‘ over the child. She spends maximum time with us but still is not satisfied.
Even I have to fight a lot if I need to visit my parents.
My husband is neutral about these issues. I feel better not discussing it with him. I don’t understand what to do.
How can we make people of such age about their inappropriate actions. Will they really understand or take it to their pride?
