It’s our parents obligation to understand and love us unconditionally. Our in-laws won’t follow the same rule because they are not our real parents. I think it would be best if we don’t expect what people can’t deliver. So when I married Rhonnel, I didn’t expect much from my in-laws that made it easier for me to like and love them.
We lived with my in-laws for six months. Our relationship ran smoothly though there were times that my mother in-law didn’t agree on some of our decisions. Well, I didn’t expect her to but instead of debating with her, I listen and learned to see the situation from her points of view. Good thing is I am very flexible and always open to other’s opinions. I am respecting them the way I am respecting my parents and I gained their respect in no time.
There are many people who don’t get along very well with their in-laws and I am thankful that I am not one of them.When I met my in-laws thirteen years ago, I knew right there and then that they are good people and I was never wrong. They are the same good people I know and I want to thank them for treating and loving me as their own daughter.
