marriage comes many responsibilities…..some responsibilities
you might not like very much but believe me life without it
will be totally lonely and boring because your husband can
not be around you all the time and you definitely can do with
some company and help. Yes, I am taking about your in-laws.
Don't look at your in-laws as pain in the neck. Learn to appreciate
their presence in your life and consider yourself lucky to
have them around. Take time out if you are a workingwoman
to know more about your in-laws, as they are an inseparable
part of your life. This time go on a vacation with your in-laws.
Sounds creepy but believe me you will like it.
1) Take the opportunity
to know them better
Take the chance during this vacation to get to know them and
to find out as much you can about their likes and dislikes.
Make it into a challenge to guess their eating habits, their
favourite colours etc., This way you will be more closer to
them and you might even start to like them more.
2) Play games together
to build rapport
It may not be easy to do so, especially if you are vacationing
with your mother-in-law or father-in-law or other elderly
parents. However, if they are simple card games which they
can play it can be entertaining and fun for the whole family.
Be careful not to turn it into too much of a "I-must-win"
situation. Take it as a game and lose once in a while if you
must to get into their good books.
3) Remember not
to neglect your spouse
Don't forget that you are still on vacation with
your spouse even though your entire family is vacationing.
Try to make time for him by taking him on slow walks after
dinner (just the two of you, of course). Or wake up extra
early in the morning before everyone else does and take him
out for a walk or a swim at the hotel's swimming pool. Do
remember to make love to him, physically and emotionally.
Take candlelight dinner in the hotel room if possible. It's
not easy to go on a holiday with an entire family, especially
if the family happens to be your in-laws. However, once you
are used to it, it will become easily another fun filled vacation.
