family conflict

Why is there a tendency for daughter-in-laws to have bumpy relationships with mother-in-laws? It's understandable that conflict can arise when two different ideologies collide. Ideologies about child-rearing, domestic chores, finances, "wifely" duties, working outside the home, personal appearance, "husband care" and so on.
Since leaving estate affairs out of order is the most frequently cited spark igniting family conflict over a will's validity, it is of paramount importance for practitioners to advise clients to consider a family conference in order to facilitate proper communication between beneficiaries.
