Top ways to have good realtionship with in-laws

Developing a good relationship with your in-laws is critical to the overall harmony in your relationship, since your in-laws will most likely be an ongoing part of your life. Unfortunately, many individuals find themselves dodging emotional landmines when it comes to issues involving their in-laws, even when they’ve brought their best self forward.

These are the best ways to have a healthy relationship with your in-laws.

No favoritism

In most marriages, one sets of in-laws gets more time and attention than the other. There are a lot of factors that contribute to this, but you need to do everything in your power to give equal time and attention to both sets of relatives. Favoritism usually leads to resentment while consistency leads to trust.

Keep connected

When your in-laws call, make a point to answer the phone and have a conversation before handing the phone to your spouse. Show them you value them by giving your time and attention. Find simple ways to invest in your own relationships with them.

Make boundaries

A healthy marriage requires that your first and strongest loyalty must always be to your spouse, so don’t allow any other family relationship to come between you. Also, do not allow anyone to talk negatively about your spouse or do anything that undermines the sacredness of your marriage.

Have differences

Your family’s traditions and ways are probably a lot different than your spouses’s family, but both families are equally important, so value those differences. Celebrate the uniqueness of each family and find a way to bring both perspectives into your own family’s traditions.
