I am a master's student at Illinois State University. Currently, I am studying the mother-in-law/daughter-in-law dynamic. I am using this website to solicit participation for my studies as well as give updates to those who have participated. I typically do survey work,either through mail or on-line. So if you are a mother-in-law, or know a mother-in-law and are interetsed in participating in one of my studies, contact me! The research field needs your help!
