Crush on his Mother-in-Law
Q: Is it safe to confess to my mother-in-law that I have had a huge crush on her for the last 10 years?? --Mike, 37
Dr. Susan: Sure, go ahead and confess your passion for your mother-in-law. That is, if she's dead, your wife is dead, or you're confessing to a priest (or to me). Otherwise, keep it to yourself unless you want to upset a lot of people. I suppose if you're divorced, you can risk it, but it probably won't make anyone happier, including you. Now, go home and be nice to your wife, or, if you two aren't together anymore, go find someone appropriate to fall for.
