Commandments for Being the Perfect Mother-in-Law
By: Mary Fran Bontempo

I’m determined to do my best to become the perfect mother-in-law, but I know it won’t be easy because, well, I’m me. Check out my rules for my new role in this piece I wrote for Women’s Voices Magazine. (And yes, that is a picture of a shrew. Discuss.) Enjoy!
