If your wife and your mother are having conflict, the real battle is to get on the same page with your wife first. Mother-in-law and daughter-in-law relationships can be a challenge. Try these five life hacks.
1. Listen to your wife. In your own words, describe the main problem she’s having with your mother.
2. What are some boundaries you need to draw for the sake of your wife and your marriage? Make a list.
3. Ask your wife what she needs from you. How can you serve her and honor her?
4. Do you think your wife is feeling insecure about her relationship with your mom or dad? Does she feel secure in her love for you? Talk about it.
5. Do you think it’s time to talk to your mother about this issue? If not, when would be a better time? Are you willing to go, as the man, and represent both you and your wife?
