Do mother and the wife of a person always compete with each other for him? The term 'compete' here refers to being dominating and influencing other. Is it a common household psychlogical condition in which 2 females are trying to win over the male?

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Psychology.SE. Whilst it is not always the case (I could mention at least one good mother-in-law and daughter-in-law relationship off the top of my head), it is said to be quite common for mother-in-laws not to get on with their daughter-in-laws. What academic literature have you read on the subject online or in books? Is there anything you don't quite understand or can't quite follow? Adding these details (if there are any) will help to formulate a more helpful answer. $\endgroup$ – Chris Rogers Aug 11 at 10:55
