When you are in a long-term relationship, there will come a time when you’ll have to meet the in-laws. It’s an inevitable step to take the relationship to the next level, and there is no denying that it is a big one. This meeting can go one of two ways. It can either turn into a beautiful relationship that deepens with time. Or it can end up being one where you have clashes all the time. Some MILs give you unsolicited advice that can tick you off, others get too involved in your lives, and some use every opportunity to undermine you. There might be the lucky few who cannot relate to this and enjoy a beautiful bond with their mother-in-law. But if this sounds familiar to you, we are here to tell you that you are not alone. Scroll below to read 15 women share their experiences with their mothers-in-law. Some of them are hilarious, some harmless, and some simply got on their nerves that it made all of us want to scream:

Is it really that hard to understand how the internet works? Guess no number of smartphones can make you understand that.

3. When She Cannot Stop Beating Around The Bush

I wish you would get to the point or just stop talking at once. What are you even trying to say? Do you have a point, or is it just moo? (F.R.I.E.N.D.S. fans, where you at?)

4. When She Thinks She Makes Complete Sense

Have you ever heard of logic? Does it exist in your vocabulary? Got to agree, it takes a special kind of talent to think these things!

5. When She Proves That She Cannot Be Trusted With Technology

Don’t blame yourself if you’re skeptical about handing over technology to your mother-in-law. If she cannot tell the difference between the time and the temperature, it’s only natural to have your doubts.

Not sure if your mother-in-law understands what the word means. Or perhaps she is being over-enthusiastic about your daughter being a certain kind of superhero.
