Tammy says she feels that her mother-in-law, Joyce, butts into her marriage and that her husband, Troy, always takes his mother’s side instead of sticking up for her.

“Why do I have to choose? Can't I just love my wife and love my parents? I have never had this issue my entire life, except when I met her and I married her," says Troy, claiming that Tammy “always has to feel like she comes first.”
