Unfortunatly, it is sometimes the MILs who cause shalom bayis problems between the couple. MILs should know that their daughter has married and is out of the house- let her start her own house without your every word being law! She is grown up and should be allowed to run her house HER WAY. I know this happened to someone I know. Their MIL cause such issues between the boy’s family from the engagement and on. She wouldnt let the son run the house according to his family’s minhagim (which is the way it should be except the candles). There is such shalom bayis problems between the couple…December 28, 2008 4:35 pm at 4:35 pm #645964Mrs. BeautifulMember
Those cases are not the norm, and if someone is in that situation let them go to professional help. I do know some cases where a couple will go to live out of town when they find in laws too overbearing. Once u r married, there are many sollutions.January 5, 2009 4:26 pm at 4:26 pm #645965

A newlywed farmer and his wife were visited by her mother, who immediately demanded an inspection of the place. While they were walking through the barn, the farmer’s mule suddenly reared up and kicked the mother-in-law in the head, killing her instantly.
At the funeral service a few days later, the farmer stood near the casket and greeted folks as they walked by. The pastor noticed that whenever a woman would whisper something to the farmer, he would nod his head “yes” and say something. Whenever a man walked by and whispered to the farmer, he would shake his head “no” and mumble a reply.
Curious, the pastor later asked the farmer what that was all about. The farmer replied, “The women would say, ‘What a terrible tragedy,’ and I would nod my head and say, ‘Yes, it was.’ The men would ask, ‘You wanna sell that mule?’ and I would shake my head and say, ‘Can’t. It’s all booked up for a year.'”January 14, 2009 3:39 am at 3:39 am #645968

Yes. These jokes are funny, but when you make fun of relationships, it becomes harder to have good relationships. I feel this goes for marrage joke, husband jokes, wife jokes etc.
Another way of lookinga at it is: Is it proper and does it pas?January 14, 2009 4:57 am at 4:57 am #645975

kibbeh – This is very true. The world of shidduchim is vinachafok hu. Think about everything we ever learned, and everything we teach our children about
a. ruchnius v. gashmius
b.pnimius v. hitzonius
c. an individual’s ability improve himself
d. the koach of teshuvah
and think how these concepts apply to shidduchim! It’s crazy!January 14, 2009 5:38 am at 5:38 am #645979

some more jokes:
a husband & wife are walkin along and suddenly see 6 thugs beating up her mother. she turns to her husband and asks “aren’t you going to help?”, to which he responds “neh, 6 are enough”.
a couple is driving in a car and just had a huge fight(oiy). they pass a field with cows and the wife turns to her husband and asks “relatives of yours?” to which he responds “yes, my in-laws” (oops- that includes the shver as well)
a man is heard yelling from the second floor window “help! help! my mother in law wants to jump out of the window!”. His neighbor comes running, sees a closed window and asks “so what’s the problem?”
son in law says “I can’t get it open!”

Mother: So tell me, what does the bochur do in his spare time?
Shadchan: He is very dedicated to chessed; he spends all his spare time helping the community.
