My mother-in-law is the most patient person I know. Notify me via e-mail if anyone answers my comment. After all, if you found this article, I am betting you are dating or already married to a wonderful Chinese man. Your Chinese mother-in-law will always be willing to lend a hand for cooking, cleaning, and watching children. She was able to raise a family of seven out in rural China, in a two bedroom home, with no running water or modern amenities! Gave me some insight, not only into your Chinese family, but also into who you are. She has caused me so much pain it is unbearable.
