LifeCycle Events: Marriage and Sexuality: The Mother-in-law / Daughter-in-law Relationship:
What do the Jewish sources tell us about the mother-in-law/daughter-in-law relationship?
The Book of Ruth tells about a daughter-in-law who refused
to leave her mother-in-law after her husband died, and who was
rewarded by finding a new husband and becoming the great-grandmother
of King David. Unfortunately, there is often tension between in-laws, leading to animosity, rivalry, or lack of impartiality; see Mishnah Yevamos 15:4.
