Everyone remembers the 2005 movie Monster-in-Law starring Jane Fonda as a mother-in-law from hell. The movie was a comedy, but if you ask anyone who is dealing with a monster-in-law in real life they will tell you that it is no laughing matter. The sad truth is that dealing with in-laws is frequently cited in divorce cases, but you don’t have to become a statistic.

Not all mothers-in law are evil incarnate. In fact some are very much beloved and respected. They are the antithesis of a monster-in-law – someone who is over bearing, demanding, controlling, a bully, and very intrusive. What can you do if you have a monster-in-law?

If you haven’t yet been able to find any humour in your situation here is a fun Monster-in-Law quiz that may amuse you.
