Fighting with your mother-in-law is an evolutionary trait, studies show

TWIN with the mother-in-law is an evolutionary trait, researchers say.

Both men and women have been found to be much more likely to row with their spouse’s mother, like feuding Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda in the 2005 rom-com Monster-in-Law, than their own.

It is believed that the in-laws subconsciously side with their child.

Comedian Les Dawson may not have been surprised by the news, who once said: “I can always tell when the mother-in-law comes, the mice throw themselves on the traps.”

Fathers, on the other hand, are more likely to argue with their own daughters, likely because they don’t approve of a boyfriend or husband.

US psychologist Jessica Ayers said: “We want good relationships with in-laws, but they don’t have the same building blocks as biological relationships.

“Because our in-laws are related to our significant other, this can unknowingly lead them to side with our spouse.”
