Mother in Laws

When you said "I do," you probably didn't realize the exact number of the people you were committing to that day.  There are the brothers-in-law, the sisters-in-law, the cousins, etc. But no one is more present (and sometimes more powerful) in your marriage than your MOTHER-IN-LAW!  And your poor father-in-law?  That guy hardly gets any attention! 

We'll talk about ways to live with (and have a good relationship with!)  the bossy mother-in-law, the pushy mother-in-law, the "my son is always right" mother-in-law, and all the mothers-in-law in between!

About Stacey DuFord and Lynn Montemayor :

Stacey_DuFord_395803024.jpgStacey DuFord is an author and media personality. She has dispensed her opinions and insights on morning radio in Metro Detroit for two decades and as an advice columnist on a nationwide website for teen girls. She has nearly raised two children into adulthood and has been married (to the same man) for over 25 years. She loves a good Girls Night and prefers Sauvignon Blanc over Chardonnay.

Lynn_Montemayor_874768324.jpgLynn Montemayor is a media marketing tour de force, but her real skill is her ability to make you laugh, at her and yourself, before you even realize it. She utilizes this skill as the creative force behind FortySixFive, and to get her teenage daughter out of bed (she also has a son in college but he's on his own). She has been married for over 20 years (to the same man. But not the same man that Stacey is married to).
