小编摘要:莫林·麦基是一位美国母亲,她看着女儿嫁作了人妇,欣喜于女儿的幸福。但有些话是她憋在心里,不好意思对女婿当面说出的。

The dreaded mother-in-law! Your relationship with her can certainly place stress on your marriage. No matter how hard you try to please her, there will surely be some things she doesn’t like but never mentions—or so you hope.

 

岳母与女婿

 


1.Thank you.


I’ve never seen my son happier than he is now, married and with children.


2.You don't have to call me Mom.


But it would be nice if you did.


3.I'm so grateful that my daughter has another person to look after her.


I am finally off the hook.


4.I really want to make you happy.


If you hate that green sweater I bought you, please, please tell me.


5.Thank you for making my child so happy.


If I haven’t told you that very much, it’s because I’m afraid you’ll think I’m sucking up.


6.I desperately want to ask you:


When are you going to have children?


7.I’ve never formed a warm bond with you.


But when I see how happy my son is, I feel enormous affection for you.


8.I so wish I could talk to you about it.


Sometimes I watch you making choices that I so fear will lead you to difficulty. But I bite my tongue.


9.I'm aware that my time on this earth is growing shorter.


I want to spend it positively. I don’t want to waste it by fighting.


10.I'd like to share my advice more.


I might not have the best ideas, but I do have decades of experience.


11.Talk to me.


If you think I can’t give good advice because I don’t have the full picture, well… paint it for me.


12.We're from different generations.


And we’ll probably always see things differently.


13.I really want to give my grandkids a gift now and then.


But you forbid me to do it. That’s painful.


14.I want us to be closer.


The last time I was at your house, you hardly even spoke to me. I can’t understand why.


15.What I want most can't be wrapped in a box or bought online.


16.I thought you'd be thrilled to have me as your mother-in-law.


I thought that you’d think, Wow, I’m so lucky! It kills me that you don’t.


17.I always send gifts for your birthday and all the holidays.


It bugs me that you never thank me personally.


18.Some mothers-in-law will say anything.


I try not to. It’s not wanted, appreciated, or believed.


19.I've actually led a rich, interesting, complicated life.


I wish you’d see me that way. I feel a little resentful that suddenly my whole life is seen through the prism of “the mother-in-law.”


20.When I call you on the phone at 8 in the morning on a Saturday...


I hope you’re not secretly saying, “Damn. Why is she calling here so early?”


21.Sometimes I weep.


I’ll think, How could my child who I loved so much marry someone I don’t understand at all?


22.I want you to need me.


I want to feel valued, respected, and loved.


23.I don't always agree with your decisions.


But I know you have to live your own life.


24.I would visit my grandchildren more if I felt closer to you.


25.You're bright, thoughtful, and loving.


I’m lucky we have each other.

 


我从没看到女儿这么开心过,谢谢你。如果我没有对你说过谢谢,那是我放不下面子。


你可以不管我叫“妈妈”。但如果你这么叫了,我会很高兴。


女儿多了一个照顾她的人,我很感激。


我非常急迫地想知道,你们什么时候要孩子?


哪怕咱们关系处得不太好,看到女儿这么幸福,我内心仍然很欣慰。


我意识到自己活在地球上的时间越来越少了。我想活得积极一点,不要和你父母有任何不快。


虽然我的主意不一定最好,但我毕竟经过了几十年的磨练,所以请分享我的经验。


我时不时地想给孩子买礼物。但你总说我溺爱孩子,这让我很难过。


上次去你们家,你不怎么和我说话,我很困惑。


我想要的东西不能裹在盒子里,也不能从网上购得——我最想要的是关爱。


咱们关系好不好,和我去你们家看孩子的次数成正比。


我渴望被需要的感觉。我需要价值感。


当我周六早上8点给你们打电话,我希望你把电话递给我女儿的同时,不要嘴里嘟囔:“烦人!这么早打电话干吗!”
