As women, we are all potential wives, mothers, daughters-in-law, and mothers-in-law.

When our children get married, our lives change, our family becomes larger, and we automatically become mother-in-law. When this happens, as a mother- in-law, we should take a step back and allow our children and their partners have their space and privacy.

Probing into a confidential affair by asking our children for information is no more allowed.

As a mother you must trust and have faith and confidence in your children to let them go and live their lives. Do not see your son’s home as an extension of your home and never see your son’s wife as a rival that must be under your control.

As a mother of the bride, you should not put pressure on your daughter to refrain from becoming close to her mother-in-law or her sister-in-law out of jealousy. Instead of doing this you should be praying for them.

As mothers, being older and equipped with a lot of experience, we should be strong pillars and a source of wisdom to our young wives who are just learning the intricacies of building their families. Click To Tweet

Most of the time, young wives find themselves at our mercy because they are married to our sons. This should not be the case.

Being older and being equipped with a lot of experience, we should be strong pillars for our young growing families by being a source of wisdom to our young wives who are just learning the intricacies of building their families.

We should always pray for them and offer advice only when asked and only at the time it was asked.

I pray that God will give us the grace and wisdom to be a mother-in-love
