Hey Anonymous.. I completely understand what Ur saying and I must say that u have big help from ur mil Ur lucky n blessed. But it's v sad to see her mindset not changing with time. This is something God has created and we need to value and respect ourselves first .. I wouldn't say ignore it but try and don't let her know about ur dates how would one know if ur going thru ur periods it's a v personal thing. Ignore certain times and be stern and make urself clear.
