You speak the truth. In my situation, my wife did not receive parenting from both parents due to the early divorce. My mother-in law learned the hard way with her poor decisions. It’s funny because many times I consider speaking with her mother about issues because I know she’ll agree with me because she already learned that lesson. On the other hand it’s her daughter and I refrain because I worry she’ll just act like a typical irrational woman. Maybe one day I’ll pull this trigger.

I would start early if you are going for the long-haul.

Whenever you have the MIL away from the wife is best. MIL needs someone to reinforce ideas like a sounding board before confidence sets in. Otherwise she might forget the lessons and change her opinion.

Ohhh good advice but I’ve been married for 17 years now already. It really has progressed in the last 5 years as she reached forty and all the shitty progressive crap she consumes. I try to break down the walls but the conditioning is too strong. We have been drifting for a while now. Sad
