The relationship between a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law has always been a point of discussion and continues to be in the limelight one way or the other.

Domineering MILs are not very uncommon even in these days and times. A Twitter user’s tweet that went viral recently was a rant because of being chided by her MIL. She wrote, “I was literally shamed by the mother-in-law for eating the last smallest piece of cake in the house and not sharing it with seven people in the house, especially two of my boys and two of hers.
