People either love or hate their mothers-in-law. Mother-in-law jokes are a mainstay in comedy, and as the Independent reports, these women have also been “the subject of more serious vilification.” The mother-in-law stereotype goes as far back ancient times, when Roman satirist Juvenal memorably wrote: “Give up all hope of peace as long as your mother-in-law is still alive.”
Juvenal’s words are harsh, but like I said, people tend to either love or hate their mothers-in-law. But if I had to guess, I’d say the following people probably share a pretty good relationship with theirs. From hilarious lines to mindless blunders and inappropriate laughs, these 30 mothers-in-law definitely succeed in making their families lives a bit more interesting!
