    I suppose one might view the article as a sign of transparency, however, the reality is that few authors openly make unkind comments about their spouse's mother in a published article. I will not continue this as an argument, but in my view, it would have been better had you left the comment about your mother in law out of the piece. I am of the old school and feel that respect for one's elders in familial settings is a way to keep the cohesive nature of the relationship from becoming more strained. All men,whether or not they are honest, do love their mothers for the most part, and even when there are temperamental fractures and disagreements. The worst thing is when the wife attacks a man's mother even verbally, because in doing so, she is hurting the feelings of her husband. It puts the husband in the difficult situation of being between two warring women in his life, both of whom he probably loves very much.

    I'll be the first to admit that I'm far from perfect, John. And while I would never spread lies or disclose personal information about someone in a published article, my style of writing is one that doesn't hold any punches. I take pride in my transparency and--over years of blogging--I've found that my readers can relate with and appreciate my honesty. I'm sorry it rubs you the wrong way!

    Interesting article, BUT the writer needs to show more class and avoid saying unkind things about her mother in law in a published article.. Nobody is perfect, including the writer.
