Comments:   My sis in law stays with us since day 1 of our marriage and she behaves as if she is the princess of the house and I am a maid..my mil says she is the daughter of the house and I am just an out sider so expect no help from her for anything. I am a working woman and have my baby on the way now. She watches me suffering and working all alone in my house n managing office. But offers no help or sympathy to my tough life and moreover complaints to my mil that my hubby is more sympathetic on me than her. Me in laws expect us to do everything for her get her married in grand style with our money but straight forward they say not to expect anything from her. Is this justified in anyway
