Why is the mother-in-law always described so bad here? I really like my mother-in-law.

In the Romanian culture the mother-in-law is never happy with you, plotting against you, and you are supposed to hate her too, and complain that she's bad. We even got jokes around this conflict.

I thought this "existed" in a lot of cultures. I love mine too.
