Mother In Law’s, Listen Up! This Is Why Your Son’s Wife Isn’t Reproducing

Women have fewer children if they live with their mother or mother-in-law, a major new study suggests.

Researchers found, on average, females who live just with their spouse have more children than those who share a bathroom with their relatives.

The findings dismiss widely held theories that sharing a house with a mother or mother-in-law would encourage women to have more children.

Austrian scientists made the conclusion after assessing statistics attained from 2.5 million females across the world.

Until now, biologists assumed that a woman who lives with her mother or mother in law would have more children.

But the new study, ‘dubbed interesting’ and published in the journal Royal Society Open Science, discovered the opposite effect.

Writing in the journal, the researchers said: ‘Our data thus point to lower fertility in case of the presence of any mother in the household.

‘This is interesting, as one would expect that both mothers should have “some biological interest” in a higher number of grandchildren. 

Experts blamed reproductive competition behind why many women choose not to have children while living with their own mother or in law.

The University of Vienna team noted how the grandmothers tended to be younger if they were still living with their daughter, or son’s spouse.

They suggested that a younger grandmother may have children on her own which is more important than raising their own grandchildren.

This may cause a woman to avoid becoming pregnant, as they would perhaps feel they wouldn’t receive enough support with their newborn.

How was the study carried out? 

Researchers used census data of 2,478,383 married women between the ages of 15 and 34 from 14 countries, including the US, Iraq and Argentina.

Analysis showed a stark cultural difference between which women tend to live with either their parents or in laws. All of the participants lived with their spouse.

Some 1.47 per cent of American women live with their husband’s mother, compared to 53 per cent in Iraq, the results revealed.

While the amount of those living with their own mother ranged from 0.79 per cent in Malawi to 17 per cent in Thailand.

The analysis bracket included all women still in their reproductive years, in theory, meaning they had yet to complete their family.

Education, where they lived and their partner’s education level were also assessed for any potential effects on the number of children.

City woman narrates how her mother-in-law spiked her husbands drink in this nasty experience

Mothers-in-law are known to be inhuman, unkind, jealous, envious, bad-hearted creatures who mistreat their daughters-in-law especially if she sees you as the worst choice for her son.

A Nairobi woman has left many perturbed after she shared her harrowing experience with her mother-in-law from hell.

According to this embittered wife, her mother-in-law hated her from the first time she met her. She claims that her mother-in-law was against her marrying her son and she has gone through hell in the hands of the Jezebel (mother-in-law) in her family. Her sister-in-law is also another agent of Satan.

“My mother-in-law and sister-in-law hate me with passion. My husband is a graduate, well educated and has a well-paying job while on the other hand after completing high school I didn’t join college due to finances my family was struggling. I met my husband in a coffee shop I was working and he loved me right there and then we dated for 2 years then, he married me. I remember when they came to pay my dowry his mother called me aside and told me that I should treat her son well or else she will send me packing back to my poverty-stricken family,” she wrote.

The frustrated wife added;

“The next day I woke up early to prepare breakfast, she woke up pissed, questioned me about everything. The design of the seats and the decor, she didn’t like the wallpaper I had installed oh no she hated everything. The night came, we prepared ugali and beef and I served everyone. Later we decided to have wine with hubby and her. Continue reading “City woman narrates how her mother-in-law spiked her husbands drink in this nasty experience”

4 Things You Should NEVER Tell Your Partner’s Mom

It’s preferable to be respectful to the woman who raised your man but you should also find a way of limiting her influence in your home.

Having your mother-in-law active in your husband’s life can sometimes be a big problem. Some women have admitted to me that they wished their partner’s moms were dead. Others even say they wouldn’t want to marry a guy whose mother is still alive. It’s almost like, the fear of your mother-in-law is the beginning of wisdom. But whatever the case may be, she’s alive and involved in your marriage. So, to keep things sane and happy, here are five things you should never say to your mother-in-law;

“Don’t ever come to my house again”

 

Most mother-in-laws hate these words with a passion. They hate when the wives give them orders not to see their sons whenever they want to. They feel it’s their right to know everything about their sons’ lives but don’t want you to have same right.

 

“You are a bad mother”

No mother wants to be labelled as a bad mom, not even yourself. Yes, she could be problematic but does that make her a bad mother? The truth is she raised the “good” guy you are now dating or married to. She’ll think you are rude, ungrateful and disrespectful. This could be detrimental to your relationship.

 

“Stay away from my husband”

These words will hurt any mother. Your husband is her son no matter how you want to look at it. So show the woman some respect already! Some mothers are mean, even to their own children but don’t be the one to tell her that. Let her son do it. She’s been in her son’s life like forever so asking her to stay away from the man she raised is unreasonable.

 

“You didn’t raise your son any better”

Any mother hates when her ability to be a good mother is called to question by anyone especially her daughter-in-law. She knows how she raised her boy, and if the son isn’t complaining, you shouldn’t!
