We need to begin with clear expectations and communication.
It s been said that when you say I do to your spouse at the altar, you re also making a commitment to your spouse s family. But that may be more than you bargained for.
As Les and Leslie Parrott convey in their articles Help! I Can t Shake the In-Laws, My In-Laws Hate Me, and I Dread the Holidays from MARRIAGE PARTNERSHIP magazine, managing relations with your in-laws can require a combination of firmness, love, and tact. What does it take to leave the parental authority you ve been under and build a new life together? How do you protect your privacy from well-meaning, but intrusive, parents? What does a healthy relationship with in-laws look like? This study explores these questions in greater detail.
