Earlier we reached Dr. Nathalie Martinekdoctor, the hacker of narcissism and a relationship coach to gain more insight into the complex in-law relationship. According to her, there can be many reasons why an agreement with a partner’s parents can seem difficult. “Often, a partner is considered unsuitable for a son or daughter because of their personality, profession, education, upbringing or culture,” she said. Boring Panda.
The expert also pointed out that it can be especially difficult for women when their mother-in-law sees them as a competitor for attention. “Mother-in-laws who control their son feel insecure about the son’s level of loyalty and want to be the most important woman in their son’s life, constantly influencing his feelings and choices.
In such cases, the mother may seek to control the son’s decisions as he develops relationships, “using emotional manipulation tactics to keep the son close and dependent on the mother’s approval, as he still needs it to feel secure and stable.”
Unfortunately, Dr. Martinek argued, men often overlook their mother’s attempts to drive a wedge between the couple “using methods that would harm the daughter-in-law/partner, such as criticizing her character, appearance, housekeeping, parenting, or career.” create tension in the couple’s relationship so that the son runs to his mother every time her tactics cause conflict.”
She noted that some mothers-in-law are constantly trying to destroy the relationship, consciously or unconsciously, until they can restore the parent-child dynamic they once had with their sons. The most interesting thing is that the mother may not even realize that she is doing this. Additionally, her son may have difficulty acknowledging these harmful patterns, even if a partner who notices them points them out.
“Relationships are difficult enough between two people without the interference of parents or others.” Although some parents want their children to believe that meddling or giving advice means they care, this can often mean that the parent has not been able to let go of their adult child and still wants to be seen as the most important person. the life of an adult child”, summarized Dr. Martineks.
