Advice for future Daughter-in-laws

Filed under: family — admin @ 12:24 am

This is what I read from a magazine while I was in China. It is a challenge to maintain a normal relationship between mother-in-laws and daughter-in-laws. Hence, it is wise to avoid the following before marriage.

(1) Postpone meeting your in-laws as long as possible.

(2) Don’t get into the habit of buying expensive stuffs for your future in-laws, as this tends to develop an expectation on their part.

(3) Don’t offer to do too much household. Instead of appreciating your hard work at home, they tend to take it for granted, as if this is what you SHOULD do.

(4) Don’t talk about your family to your in-law family. You never know how your in-laws interpret the stories in your family.

(5) Don’t stay too long in your in-laws house, as if you were eager to sell yourself cheaply. Keep your distance.

(6) Don’t stay overnight in in-laws’ house.

(7) Spend as much time as possible with your family, as this is where you belong and where people truly love you.

(8) Say NO and show your displeasure when needed. When you perceive a hint of disrespect from your in-laws, don’t just eat dirt and say nothing. Your silence might be understood as being weak and easy to bully around. By polite and modest, but not humble to the point of losing your personal integrity.

(9) Never spend too much money on your in-laws family, even when there is a need.
