Description
Merrill (sociology, Clark U.) examines the relationship between mothers and daughters-in-law. She addresses issues and myths, based on interviews with 53 daughters-in-law and a subset of their mothers-in-law, dividing the relationship among six categories, from very close to estranged. She considers representations in popular culture, and how they are used to create the identities of daughters-in-law; factors that determine the quality of relationships, including race, class, religion, and education; the development of the relationship and the creation of the daughter-in-law role; and the mother-in-law's perspective and how the nature of the mother/son relationship changes after marriage. Sources of difficulty are also discussed, as well as what it means to be an "in-law" in American society. She also considers the influence of relationships with others in the family.
