How to Deal With Annoying In-Laws

January 26, 2011  |  

You can choose your husband, but unfortunately you can’t choose your in-laws. In-laws are the baggage each partner brings into the relationship.  The baggage could be good, or it could be bad. Just the same, there are some people who are lucky enough to have in-laws that welcome them into the family with open arms. Then there are others whose in-laws are everything but welcoming.

So unfortunately, if your loving and supportive husband just so happens to have a family that’s comparable to the in-laws from hell, you still have to at least attempt a positive relationship with them, for the sake of keeping the peace within your marriage. You don’t have to be best friends with his sister, take marital advice from his mother, or even call his father ‘dad,’ but you should at least make the relationship as cordial as possible.

So how do you deal with these nuisances known as in-laws?
