I think it's unfortunate that the poll seems to perpetuate a lot of the negative stereotypes about mothers-in-law. Although there was a question about how good your relationship was with your MIL, the options led with Terrible and all the other questions were phrased assuming that our MIL is terrible and we wouldn't want to spend time with her. I also felt somewhat left out because several of the questions focused on children but I'm childfree so that isn't a factor at all in my relationship with my MIL.
