2 questions:

1) To what extent does a woman have to obey her mother-in-law (not considering respect, we already know we are supposed to respect, we are talking about Obligation)?
-for example, if the mother-in-law wants her daughter-in-law to wear a specific outfit and the daughter-in-law refuses, does the mother-in-law have the right to say, you must obey --- and if not, how should the daughter-in-law respond?

2) Is a son obligated to divorce his wife if his mother orders him to (not because the wife is not a good muslim but because the mother is not pleased with her, although the husband is pleased with his wife)?
