Sometimes there is a rift in the family, between the mother-in-law and the daughter-in-law. A man has to adjust with both of them. That is the way. Try to cajole your mother into thinking as if her daughter-in-law in fact is her daughter. Also try to cajole your wife to think as if her mother-in-law in indeed her mother.
