'I am attracted to my mother-in-law'
Dear Diana, I'm 45 while my wife is 30. My mother-in-law, who is 52, lives with us. One day my wife and kid had gone to bed.
My mother-in-law and I were watching TV. We were sitting on the same sofa. One thing led to another and before we knew, we embraced. To be honest, I don’t regret what happened. In fact it was fun. The next morning my mother-in-law did not utter a word. She’s behaving as if nothing ever happened. Now I want her in bed.
Do you want your child’s grandmother to double up as a stepmom as well? Surely your mother-in-law has more brains and has kept shut after that night. Things may have happened in the heat of the moment, but the faster you banish such thoughts, the better it will be for you. Your fantasy will ruin three lives — yours, your wife’s as well as your mother-in-law’s. Instead stick to playing your role of a son-in-law. Think of how your wife will react if she finds out. You will strain the mother-daughter relation as well.
Diana will solve it!
