A&E has a new reality show that focuses on in-law relationships. Monster in Laws airs Monday's at 10 pm ET, and features real married couples whose relationship is struggling because of their relationship with their in-laws.
I'm sure many of you can relate. Whether it's an in-law giving their unsolicited advice, or one spouse feeling caught in the middle, in each case everyone is left feeling angry or resentful.
Monster in Laws highlights some unconventional methods that are used to get both sides to communicate. It's not always the elder in-laws fault either. Sure, you migh relate to duct-taping a mother-in-law's mouth closed just so she'll listen. But how about forcing a daughter-in-law to take her jewelry to the pawn shop so that she can finally repay her mother-in-law?
Relationships are difficult and require open communication and, most importantly, honesty, to work well. Everyone will relate to something in Monster in Laws, so everyone deserves a shot at winning this in law survival kit!
The In-Law Survival Kit includes:
$50 Body Shop Gift Card
Spa Wisdom™ Japan Yuzu & Green Tea Bathing Salts
Total Body Massager

Disclosure: I have a wonderful relationship with my OWN Mother-in-Law who occassionally reads this blog along with her other relatives. We are one, big, happy, loving family with no issues whatsoever. That said, even I can enjoy this show...it's THAT good. The giveaway prize is provided at no cost by Lifetime / A&E. All opinions are my own and this post was neither reviewed nor approved prior to being published.
THANK YOU to everyone for sharing your in-law stories. I had a number of giggles, snorts, and "oh my" s reading all of these. The winner (chosen via Random.org) of the prize pack is.... Giant Sis - who actually covered her mother-in-law's mouth with her hand to shut her up in the back of the car. Something I now a few of you have dreamed about, no doubt!
