How to nurture your relationship with your in-laws

Are you all set to take the pheres? Some tips to happy relationships with in-laws.

Go in with a clear mind

Well, the first amendment to make in this mindset is to begin believing that your in-laws are your parents. We know it could be a bit difficult but is no way impossible. Once you open your mind up on this line, none of your mom in law’s suggestions would appear like a mock. No more long faces if she chides you for doing something the wrong way too! New relationships need time to be strongly sealed. Therefore, dive into these with the mindset that you will need some time for the bond to develop. Instead of having a critical approach towards your in-laws, take it as a test to prove your prowess at relationships.

It’s easy – you only need to try

Forget all the typical tales you have heard from friends and family about in-laws. Go into your new home with an open and positive mind. This will smoothen any creases that could form. After all, you have opposing opinions and conflicts even with your parents and partner, don’t you?

One huge mistake newlywed brides make is to sideline their spouse from his family. Remember, his parents have too big a role in his life. You are important but so are they. Never turn into the typical possessive wife. This could create a large gap between your new family and yourself.

Treat her like your own mother

Treat your in-laws with respect and never commit the mistake of treating them differently from your own parents. Try and go for dinner outside with them. Plan trips with them and find common grounds over which all of you could bond.

Your in-laws do have expectations from you so does the society. No matter where you stay, you will be expected to attend family gatherings and visit neighbours as an introduction formality take these joyfully in your stead. Never go about these grumpily. So what if you cannot stand that distant aunt? You are cultured enough to maintain a courteous stance for a while surely.

The choice is yours.

Brides can either turn into beautiful daughters at their hubby’s home or into Bride-zilla. Keep calm and master the art of nurturing these new relationships in life. It is easier than you thought. Only thing that you need is some patience and oodles of optimism.
