Over time I realized that they are very honest and direct and that money is a way of showing love. JenKruger 3 yrs ago I want to comment on this because I have spent the last two summers in rural Indiana. If we're not showering them with money or buying them things, then we do not love them and they cannot count on us; our love for her, our son, our grandson means nothing. Of course she did. They basically asked us to go shopping for them and run some errands while they stayed home with the baby.
At least, that is where her parents live now.
Cultural differences or spoiled daughter-in-law?
Basically, we were just doing them a favor by doing their shopping for them. My girlfriends family embraces me and would do anything for me of for each other. From your outline, I feel your daughter in law is an aggressive and demanding woman. If your son were to fall on hard times, don't count on her support. That is just the way things are and that will not be changing. I can't imagine if I put my husband in the middle you know those daughter-in-law and mother-in-law always bitch slap each otherit's not gonna do any good.
