My mother-in-law is a two-faced, nasty woman who has been the bane of my life. When I had our first child, who is now 27, my mother-in-law criticised everything from the way I held the baby to how I fed him.

Earlier this month, Czarniak talked to her mother-in-law Betty Jo Melvin about the moment she learned her son was dating a white woman and this time, she flipped the question and asked her mom what she thought when she learned her daughter was dating a Black man.

I am a 34 year old straight woman in an open marriage with a 39 year straight man. I have taken far more advantage of the openness of our marriage than my husband, at least until recently. I have had a string of long-term affairs and short-term flings. During the past 8 months I have basically been living with another man in a neighbouring town to the one I live in.

I realize this may be a touchy subject, but just hear me out. Every mama deserves a unicorn, er, mother-in-law like mine. First, she gave birth to- and raised her son well— very well. It is because of her that he reveres women and is a devoted dad who worships the ground his daughters walk on. She led by example, showing him what a strong, confident female looks like and taught him to deeply respect and support women. Rather than protecting her baby boy at all costs, she will support and defend her daughter-in-law if warranted possibly disappointing her son.
Sorry, dear. She understands that her son has a life partner now and his marriage is just as important as his relationship with mama. Hello, Fairy Mother-in-Law! She offers opinions without passing judgment. She has a way of suggesting things in a non- offensive, casual manner. You can take it or leave it. No pressure.

My husband and I have a 4-month-old boy. I’m Korean American, so our son would call my mother Halmoni , the Korean word for grandmother. However, my mother-in-law keeps referring to herself as “Meemaw” and has seemingly decided that this is what our son will call her. I’m reluctant to use that term for her, since it looks like it’s commonly used in other cultures that are not her own. From my understanding, my husband’s family has distant German roots three or four generations back, so at the very least, Oma would make way more sense.
