Very true in most cases. At home in the States or other Western countries we are raised to be independent and for the most part we live that way. Here, they are raised to be and are forever interdependent for life. It's all in what you are use to from childhood and here it is the "norm". For you sanity, and for your marriage, it is most wise to put as much distance between you and your wife's family as possible.
Even the Filipina wives seem to see the benefit of the separation after several years--Mine did..
