: Can anybody give me advice on how to deal with a Greek mother in-law?? I myself am not Greek but I have a good knowledge of the Greek language.
: I can get on very well with her but sometimes I feel she is taking over my life. I was wandering if maybe it would be a good idea to try and talk to her about it?
Well, where should I begin? I am Greek and have a Greek mother-in-law as well and it still doesn't make it better. They will try to control as much as they can and throw sarcasm in as often as they can. They mean well but they are protecting their son. All you can do is talk to your husband about it and let him deal with her. If you go and discuss things with her, she will get offended, as they all do. I have gotten into so many arguments with my mother in law over her nagging and sarcasm but she ALWAYS takes it the wrong way. Please just let things go in one ear and out the other or you will go crazy.
Best of luck.
