Mothers-in-law have been vilified the world over for how meanly they treat their sons- and daughters-in-law. To many married couples, mothers-in-law epitomize dark angels who wouldn’t hesitate to harm their innocent sons- and daughters-in-law at the slightest opportunity they can get.
Numerous books, films, and television shows have only perpetuated the assumptions that mothers-in-law are evil creatures who deserve no recognition in the family’s hierarchy. A case in point is the film ‘Monster in Law’, featuring Jennifer Lopez.
But despite all the horror stories you’ve heard about them, mothers-in-law can be so sweet and caring. They’re fun to be around too.
Mothers-in-law are the only family members who can freely share with you deeply-held secrets about your partner, including some of their quirkiest behaviors. They can also be your reliable support system whenever you need sound marriage advice.
So, even if your relationship with your mother-in-law isn’t so rosy, it’s important to occasionally shower her with praise and adoration just for raising your partner. One way to do that is by sending her heart-touching mother-in-law birthday wishes and quotes.
A perfect birthday wish is a great way to remind your mother-in-law how much you treasure and appreciate her. In this post, we unveil 80 best messages to wish a happy birthday to your mother-in-law.
