Limerence Causing Conflict in Relationship Between Mother-in-Law and Daughter-in-Law: A Study on Unhappiness in Family Relations and Broken Family
This paper examines the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law relationship and its causes and consequence for future of family. For this study, twenty five each, mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law were interviewed and interacted to know the status of the above relationship. From this study, it revealed that their relationship was suffering from various causes. Among these, limerence ( an emotional state of being love) was the prime. The son(her husband) was the limerent object to whom her mother(-in-law) was attached from his birth and she did not like to shift it to her wife(daughter-in-law). This was the main reason of their conflict which was creating psychological and social problems in their family life. This same gender discrimination was the burden of peaceful living. In this global era, it would be overcome through adjustment and sharing of their place of limerence.
