In a marriage, couples have 2 different philosophies about their relationships with in-laws:
- When you get married to yours truly, you are also married to his parents; therefore it’s important to love and care for them as if they are your own parents. It is also important that you get along with them.
- When you get married to yours truly, his parents are a part of his life; but, they shouldn’t affect your relationship whether they like you or not. Having a loving and caring relationship is good but not important as long as you’re with yours truly.
In more than a handful of instances, wives who are not in peaceful terms with their in-laws place husbands in an awkward position by having them choose: Your Parents or Me?
Dear Yours Truly Readers,
Chad and I decided to visit his parents for a long weekend. It’s been a while since I saw them. If you remember, we celebrated the Holidays with our respective families – we haven’t done this since we got engaged 8 years ago.
The visit was worthwhile. It gave me some alone time with my in-laws while Chad went for a massage, swam or worked out. Each time I got the chance to have quality conversations with them; it made me realize even more how lucky I am to be married to Chad. He has great set of parents who are affectionate and nurturing.
My father in law is one of the wittiest, ingenious and keen individuals I’ve ever met. He is a hard working father who was an exceptional provider for his family. Chad respects his knowledge in any types of industries or trades. He enjoys talking to him about our business, Yours Truly Wedding Albums. They can talk for hours – Melvin listens and contributes his opinions when asked.
