          Advice For In-Laws At Odds


          October 18, 2017

          Greg says he’s caught in the middle of his ex-wife, Amanda, and his mom, Kathy. He claims Amanda is “incredibly jealous” of his mother and that his mom “can’t stand” Amanda because of her “loud and vulgar” behavior.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is your family a stressed mess?

          Greg and Amanda were married for 15 years before divorcing two years ago. The exes are considering getting re-married but claim the issues with Kathy are impeding their reunion. Watch more of their story here.

          After listening to all sides, Dr. Phil offers the family advice.

          “I don’t think anybody here is to blame for this situation being off track,” he tells them. Referring to Kathy he says, “I think she is misguided and does not respect boundaries.”

          To Kathy he says, “I don’t think that your son has hooked up here with some wild-eyed bipolar out-of-control witch. I think she has good intent. I just think she has allowed herself to vent a bit often and loudly, and I think that doesn’t make her a bad person. It just means that she’s making some bad choices.”

          Turning to Greg, Dr. Phil continues. “There’s no divided loyalty here. You love your mother 100% your entire life. You should today, you should tomorrow and you should for the rest of your life,” he says. “There’s no choice to be made here. You love your mother 100% and you can love your wife 100%. It’s a different account.”
