Mom vs MIL
Thu, 08-30-2012 - 8:06am

When it comes to raising your families, what are the biggest difference between how your mom raised you, and how your MIL raised your SO? Are there any major clashes? Is one stepping back while one pushing you to do things their way? How are you balancing the cultural differences and expectations our families put on us?

I don't have a multicultural family, but I wanted to welcome you to the forum and tell you how gorgeous I think your signature photos are! Are they from a special occasion?

My MIL is a lot like my father and my FIL is a lot like my mother, they get a long  great.   I am happy he is Scottish because between Sweden and Scotland there isnt much different, just minor things.  It is more different between English mindset and Swedish.

How ever had it been USA it would have been harder , much harder.  

So I have zero pressure, just love and understanding over here.
