How to Cope with Pushy In-Laws

by asha@hitched

When you get married, in fact as soon as you get engaged, you will gain a whole new family. Learning to cope with your new in-laws can be challenging if you find them to be overly involved in your life and getting used to how another family interact can take some time. Take a look at some of our top tips on how you to learn to deal with your new found family.

Be Open Minded

It’s easy to say but sometimes a little more difficult to do but keeping an open mind about your new family’s ways will be a big help. Each family is different and you will need to be prepared to compromise a little to help things run more smoothly.

Set Ground Rules

Perhaps your new family have strong views on whether you should work after getting married or when to have children. It’s important that you and your new husband have some boundaries on how involved your new in laws can be in your decision making.

Know When to Give In

You may sometimes have to do some things that you don’t want too or spend a few too many nights having big family dinners but sometimes it’s better to show willing and spend some extra time with your in-laws.

Know When to Stand Your Ground

This is just as important as sometimes giving in – if there are some things that you feel you really can’t compromise on that are really important to you then know when you should stand your ground.

Spend Time Together

As with all relationships, it takes time to get to know each other and even if you don’t initially hit it off, you may find after spending some time together you become firm friends and close family!
