But there, everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

As the previous post just proved, "... the roles of stepmother and mother-in-law are undoubtedly the most reviled and stereotyped of kinship relations."
(http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles/view/20120506/life-features/A-second-mum-.418820) Why have mothers-in-law and step-mothers gotten such a bad rap? The Times article briefly reviews a book on the subject and traces its history to classical times.
