It is an inevitable mountain that those of us who choose to marry must surmount if we want to keep our union with our chosen mate and whether we admit to it or not, our in-laws DO have an effect on our relationships in a much more powerful manner than we would like to think.
But it must be said that one doesn’t have to even BE married to feel the overwhelming joys or the painful sting of being within the close proximity of the family of your mate, so whether your union is “legal” or not, the positioning and the issues that come from your mates family remains the same regardless.
To have great in-laws is such a wonderful plus to a relationship that is already something that could be considered heaven on earth. Great in-laws under-gird and support a marriage/relationship as it goes through its growing pains and will be there to encourage the couple in times of need as every relationship will have its challenges.
To have wonderful in-laws gives one the same feeling as when you go to the store and unexpectedly catch a “buy one get two free” sale, not only do you get a wonderful mate but you get an entire family to spend time with, but you get a unique perspective on how your mate was raised and what makes them that lovable person that you just can’t get enough of. All in all, with great in laws it’s a win-win situation.
Now let’s take a look at what it is like to have those drama laden entities in your midst…….
To have some terrible in-laws is such a stressful liability to a ones relationship that might even be struggling with issues that have nothing to do with those persistent spiritual vampires who do nothing except await the opportunity to barge on in on your personal space with the sole mission to keep drama up and eventually erode whatever sense of togetherness that you may be trying to preserve.
These low lives called in-laws gives one the same feeling as when you enter a dank dirty public restroom and discover an unflushed toilet filled with some inconsiderate strangers excrement, not only are they unwanted in your private space but they fumigate the immediate atmosphere with an unbearable stench that can only be tolerated for a few moments before turning ones stomach. All in all, with in-laws that possess such a low pedigree in your life it’s a lose-lose situation!
Which experiences if at all have you gone through with in-laws?
Have you walked into the crossfire of a dysfunctional family shootout that has been going on for long years before you came onto the scene?
Or have you found a family who have embraced and accepted you with open arms and have forged a loving bond that will surely last on longer even if your union with their kin evaporated?
There are so many variables when it comes to family life alone and there are even MORE sometimes confusing issues that can come at you so swiftly when it comes to the joining of two families through the institution of marriage as well as a committed relationship between two people.
Tonight we deal with every possibility boldly and without restraint. We want to hear your experiences good and bad.
