A Poll explaining why Gay Marriage is a good idea

In line with my position on Gay Marriage where anyone silly enough to want a mother-in-law is welcome to have one there is a poll in the UK suggesting precisely that the misery needs to be spread to the gay community in all fairness.

The stereotype suggests it’s husbands who simply cannot bear their mothers-in-law.

But British wives feel exactly the same, according to the latest research.

One in four despised their mother-in-law and believed she was “controlling, interfering and bitchy”, according to an online poll.

Women polled accused their mothers-in-law of routinely “knowing best” when it came to parenting, judging their parenting skills and undermining them in front of their partner and children.

Almost a third said they were made to feel they were not good enough for their partner.

Many had moved house to escape the mother-in-law’s clutches and for some the stress was so extreme it had led to marital breakdown.

The findings come from a poll of some 2000 mothers by UK website Netmums.com.

I can’t understand the fascination for gay marriage when you look at the facts.

  • 1 in 4 despise their mother-in-law
  • One third made to feel inadequate by their mother-in-law
  • Almost a quarter (24 per cent) described their relationship with their mother-in-law as bad or terrible.
  • 16 per cent believed their mother-in-law was bitchy
  • 22 per cent thought her rude
  • 25 per cent controlling
  • 35 per cent judgmental
  • 32 per cent interfering
  • 24 per cent found her worse than moving
  • 21 per cent worse than potty training
  • 14 per cent worse than morning sickness
  • 13 per cent worse than breastfeeding.
  • One in ten moved house to be further away from their mother-in-law
  • 5 per cent cited her as the chief reason for their marriage breaking down.
As I have said before, if gays want marriage then let them. They are welcome to the mother-in-law and the statistics.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.
