Here is real trouble brewing. But when you boil It down what docs it actually amount io7 A man's eating a meal with hLs mother rather than with his wife? : Js it worth creating a Uitier sUu- ; alien for the mother to try 10 get I her .son alone? Is she goiivg to enjoy his undivided attention enough j lo risk making his wife her enemy? \ i it vrorth it Lo the wife to make] a fuss over ihe situation? j Crralc Mountains Out of Molehill* ; No, it isi/t worth it either way. I Yet. it is amazing—judging from the tetters that come to me—how many wive.' and movhcrs-m-Saw make big Issues out of such ..situations. | One deliberately creates the sit- 1 nation, the other rises 10 the bait, j and the ("mily feud is on. j Either one could twctd trouble; so easily. Either the one who staris j it or :he one who Jets it get under,' her skin. ' I So my advice to the wife is to ig- \ no re the uiuution. Let her husband i go to his mother's without her. if! IIP wants to, making some plan* of I her own 'or thR evening. [ It takes two to set a family fight j started. No mother-in-law or no daughter-ir-law can get a fight going alone. j If the wife who Is all sel for j trouble will remember that, there | won't be any trouble. Her mother- in-law can't make her angry unless Mie is willing to let her. She can't hurt her unless she is waiting to be hurt.
