10 No-Question-About-It Signs Your Mom HATES Your Wife

If your mother doesn’t like your wife, you probably have a good idea that she’s not happy with your better half. But my comprehensive list that your mom hates your wife will be the real tip-off as to whether your mom is #TeamWife or #TeamIWantMySonBack.

It’s no secret that mother-in-laws and daughter-in-laws can clash from time-to-time. Typically, it’s simply a case of two strong personalities, two different personalities, or perhaps the case of one mom who can’t let her son go. For me, I was the hated wife and let me tell you: it sucked, plain and simple. There were many times I wish my ex handled the situation, but it’s hard to be between two women you love.

Should You Seek Marriage Counseling?

Marriage counseling has a spotty reputation, it seems.

When I first mentioned that my husband (ex-husband now) and I were going to counseling, I got mixed reviews from my friends. Everything from, “That’s great! I’m glad you two are trying to make things better” to “Everyone knows that marriage counseling is a sure sign of divorce.”

I suppose then that makes us a bad argument for counseling since we are in the divorce process, but in my opinion, marriage counseling is a great idea and not necessarily a sign that you and your partner will be splitsville soon enough. Here are some solid reasons to seek marriage counseling, as well as some things to expect when starting therapy.
