When "I Do" equals more than you two, what are you supposed to do?
When you love someone, it's easy to see yourself spending the rest of your life with that person. But what about that person's parents? What if your in-laws just aren't your type? And what if you aren't theirs? The in-law dilemma is real.
Whether your in-law relationship is cold or crowded, Dave and Ashley Willis want you to know there is hope. In Married into the Family, these authors share that with a little bit of understanding and a whole lot of patience, you can:
- Communicate and be heard
- Problem-solve on the go
- Find peace in the dysfunction
- Protect the unity of your marriage
You can grow in love, even for the in-laws you didn't (exactly) choose.
