I had a hard time setting boundaries with my mother in law. She was very attached to my husband and had a hard time when we were married.
In time, my husband and I both distanced ourselves from her for a few years. In those three years, we went to counseling and read the relationship books together. We drew closer to each other every day. We learned how to put each other first!
Now we understand how to set boundaries to always make our marriage come first. Our in-laws are even back in our lives and everything is great!
