Even if you don’t always agree with their ways, try your best not to put up an attitude that will cause her to dislike you.
Mothers-in-law can cause divorce. Most of them find it difficult to let go of their sons, as they meddle in their lives at any point in time.
Married women feel their thoughts and ideas don’t matter in the relationship because of their mothers-in-law’s constant involvement in their family issues.
However, if you follow these surest ways, you can have a wonderful relationship with your mother-in-law while the marriage progresses peacefully.
1. DON’T TRY TO TAKE HER SON AWAY FROM HER
Make sure that he still makes time in his schedule for his mum. He now has two women in his life and needs to strike the balance between you both, so ensure that you don’t control all his free time.
2. DON’T RESENT THE TIME HE SPENDS WITH HER
If he needs his weekly visit to see his mum, do not oppose it, just go with the flow. He doesn’t moan about the cost of your phone bill to yours so it works both ways.
3. BE NICE TO HER FAMILY
Even if you don’t always agree with their ways, try as much as possible to be nice and accommodating to their family, for that goes a long way to make them feel at peace with you.
4. ALWAYS LISTEN TO HER
She has known his son longer than you have hence if she has some insights on how to deal with her son in times of stress, you will need to listen to her.
She was with him during his most difficult teenage years, she is very wise about his behavior both good and bad.
5. SPEND TIME WITH HER
You need to try as much as possible to see her on your own, you should not only see her when she comes around. Make time and go see her.
Go grab a drink with her, which gives you a chance to bond and do things which will help you tap into her knowledge as an experienced mother.
6. ALWAYS BE YOURSELF
Don’t hide your true self. She will know if you are hiding aspects of your personality, her son fell in love with them so you need to go all out for her to know who you truly are. It is best to always be transparent and sincere.
It is said that behind every successful man is a woman, hence if you want to be that woman you need to bond very well with your mother in law to be able to achieve that.
