Overbearing In-Laws

So, got any good “in-law” stories? If you’re married, chances are you do!

Marriage is a difficult transition for everyone, especially parents. That’s why almost all couples have at least some problems getting along with their in-laws.

One friend remembers his wife’s mother taking him aside during their wedding rehearsal and trying to talk him out of the marriage. She assured him that no one would be upset if he just called the whole thing off. He went through with the wedding, and now his mother-in-law accepts him pretty well, but things have never been terribly rosy between them.

Adjusting to a new member in the family is tough for even the best of parents. It’s hard to imagine anyone good enough for your son or daughter. That’s why we all need to give them a little slack. The best way to deal with an overbearing in-law is to accept them and move forward. A lot of patience won’t hurt either.
