SO MUM THINKS SHE KNOWS BEST


I hear that a survey published today purportedly suggests that some 63% of mothers wish their children had married someone else. Now not only could that provide a statistical basis for all those old mother-in-law jokes but also a reason why so many marriages crumble under the weight of relentless family pressure and asides. There comes a time, especially once married, when we have to learn to stand on our own two feet, make our own decisions and live with them, not with our mothers.

This is such a great, informative article about the perils of outer family involvement within a marriage. My website, www.sharewik.com is doing a segment on Divorce and I would love your input!
