“You don’t just marry your spouse, you marry the family.” For many this is a blessing. For others, the in-laws can be a point of contention. There’s an art to creating healthy and loving relationships with your in-laws (or at the very least, tolerable relationships).
Studies have shown that in-law relations are a key determinant of marital happiness, and sometimes a factor in divorces. Mother-in-law jokes aside, It is worthwhile to have a healthy relationship with your in-laws. After all, they are your spouse’s parents and your children’s grandparents; they genuinely love the people you love. And they’re going to be in your life forever. You don’t have to love them, but be kind and loving, and find ways to be at peace. All will be happier for it.
On Monday, November 13 8:45PM Eastern, listen in as Devora Krasnianski of Adai Ad talks with Basya Deitsch, a noted relationship coach about this delicate relationship via a conference call on “The Gentle Art of In Law Relationships.” This call will focus on what the children-in-law might do to foster a relationship with their parent-in-law. Basya will share important mindsets and tips for diffusing situations and building peaceful relationships.
