The major issues of working women come from the different demands, which family and profession make on them. The vagueness and insecurity of the roles in the dual-earner families, along with the complication of modern life and overstated pressure on individuality make it conflicting for both husband and wife to adjust to their marital and family responsibilities. In such case if a parents-in-law and other relations living in the joint or extended family do not have much kindness with the working wife's new role and their demands and expectations then the condition become worst. Thus, performing the two different roles is not an easy task for female. It needs not only ability but also bodily and mental acceptance of an adjustment which comes through this combination of roles. So here the researcher want to study the support system from the side of other family members specially in-laws towards working wife. For working mother the condition become really difficult and if she has younger children at home. The surprising result is that majority working women gets due cooperation from their in-laws specially in taking care of kids. It is because now the society has accepted the fact of equalisation of both genders. They allow women too not only for higher education but also for paid employment. Ultimately it supports the economy of family and nation too. Even in-laws understand the struggle of working women's life and so they perform the role of proper support system.
