Mother-In-Law Demands To Be In Delivery Room And Throws A Mini Tantrum

Now here are two things that don't mix.

There are some things that just seem harder. Like there are some relationships that are just supposed to be more awkward than others and for many people one of the biggest is their relationship with their mother-in-law. It is hard when you and the mom of your partner clash and it can make things awkward in the family. It’s one of those relationships that is seen on TV as being a struggle to find common ground. And those shows are always funny because they’re seen as being very real.

It’s hard for your partner to be stuck in the middle, but at the same time you shouldn’t have to give. One mom held her ground after her mother-in-law got all upset over the birth of her first grandchild. The MIL seems like someone who is used to getting her way by being vocal. SO when the expecting mama held her ground, it seemed to cause a tantrum.

According to a Dear Prudence column, a mother-in-law is all upset because her daughter-in-law didn’t want her in the delivery room when she went into labor. That’s not unusual at all. Especially if there isn’t like a super close relationship to begin with. Giving birth is a pretty intimate experience and you are in a very vulnerable place at that time.

Well, one mother-in-law doesn’t understand that, got upset, threw a tantrum, and now she’s getting roasted on Twitter.
