Son-in-Law vs. Mother-in-Law

August 31, 2006

When the relationship with your extended family breaks down, what can you do to re-build broken family bonds, and how do you move on from the past? Meet one family who isn't on speaking terms and wonders if they can ever trust each other again.

 

 

Caring Mother or Manipulator?

Michael and Anneka believe Anneka's mother, Marcia, hates her son-in-law so much, she wants him out of the picture. Marcia says her son-in-law is brainwashing her daughter and won't let her see her granddaughter.

 

How did these relationships get so far off in the ditch?

 


 

Moving Forward

Anneka suffered through some difficult times with her mother while she was growing up. After one particular incident, Anneka felt betrayed by her mom. Could this be causing the problems they now face?

 

Can this family be stopped from unraveling completely?
