From in-law to in-love

I know. We’ve heard all kinds of horror stories about in-laws. Some are funny. Most are downright evil and blood-curdling. It’s almost an accepted fact that in-laws can make or break your marriage. I wonder how many marriages have been sacrificed on the altar of misplaced loyalties? 

Well, I have four married children. That’s four different versions of in-laws. I’ve made my mistakes. I’ve also made my own good moves (thank God!). But how I wish I prepared myself better for being a mom-in-law (MIL). It would’ve saved me from a lot of aggravation! 

With my very limited experience about in-laws, and based on the observations of friends whose judgment I trust, here are some suggestions on how to make your whole In-Law Experience a pleasant, and even a deeply meaningful one! 

1. Don’t meddle. At. All. Bite your tongue. Keep you opinions to yourself. Mind your own life, your own business, your own marriage. 

2. If your son/daughter asks for your advice or opinion, be careful not to dictate, not to take sides. Be objective. Stick to the issues. If you cannot be objective, refer your son/daughter to a godly Christian counselor. 

3. Make no demands on your in-laws. No demands about spending Sundays or Christmas or New Year’s Eve with you. No demands about making your birthday a Holy Day of Obligation. If they want to do these things without any pressure or emotional blackmail from you, then congratulations! You are definitely loved. 

4. Stop asking your married children or your married siblings to do errands for you. Remember: their first responsibility now is to their own spouse and children. You are not part of that nucleus anymore. So fend for yourself. 

4. Do not criticize or badmouth your son/daughter-in-law, or your siblings-in-law — especially not to their spouses. If you do that, you’re destroying their marriage. One day, God will discipline/punish you for that. Focus on improving your own life, your own marriage instead. 

5. When you have to call out an in-law’s bad behavior, do it in private, and if it’s clear that harm/damage is being repeatedly done. Do this in the context of counseling or positive intervention. If you don’t know to do positive intervention, get help from competent Christian counselors. 

6. Do not cover up the harmful behavior or wrong choices of your own children to save face or protect your reputation. Do not blame your son/daughter-in-law to protect your own child or sibling. The truth will eventually come out, and it’s going to be more embarassing when people find out what you were hiding! 

Plus — what’s more important anyway? Saving face or saving your son/daughter’s marriage? Saving your brother/sister’s marriage? 

7. Do not do anything that will create or add to the problems in a marriage. If you know that your child’s marriage or your sibling’s marriage is already in trouble — for goodness’ sake, do not add to their problems by adding fuel to the fire! Stop whining about your in-law’s defects or offenses against you. Instead, keep quiet and let it slide. 

What’s more important is to save the marriage — not getting even, or exacting revenge on your in-law for a wrong he/she did to you. Be selfless, not selfish, especially when a marriage is at stake. 

8. Never, never raise your voice  at your in-law. Never, never bang the phone on them. Never, never curse them or say bad words to them just because they are now part of your family. It’s wrong, totally unkind, and uncouth to shout at people. Period. 

9. Show appreciation and respect to your in-laws, consistently, even if you do not like them. Do it for God. He expects us to love even our enemies. Do it for your own son/daughter, for your own sibling — even if they are being mistreated by their spouses. 

God will take full charge of changing them, of teaching them, of disciplining them. Remember — God knows and sees everything. One day, He will reward and discipline, according to what is deserved. 

10. Respect the decisions of the married couple. If you see clear danger in the horizon — which they don’t seem to see — respectfully tell them about the perils you see. But  make it clear to them that the final decision is theirs. theirs. That you will pray for them to make the best decision for their family. 

11. Do not be a know-it-all. People who grew up in different families have different ways of doing things. You might think you’re superior, but maybe in some things, you’re not. So stop giving unsolicited advice — which is actually veiled criticism. 

12. Do not compete with your in-laws. Don’t buy your children’s and grandchildren’s love. You don’t have to serve Lechon just because your in-law does. You don’t have to buy more toys for your grandkids so they’ll love you more than their other set of grandparents. You don’t have to buy a new car or go on a vacation to a more exotic, more expensive place, just because. 

Life is a competition — only for those who are horribly insecure. Life is a celebration — only for those who are secure, and truly happy with themselves and those around them! 

Yes, we are all imperfect. But we can be imperfectly happy, imperfectly supportive, and imperfectly loving towards each other! 

Our imperfection didn’t stop God from loving us. Neither should we let it stop us from loving our imperfect selves — and our imperfect in-laws. 

Next week, let’s talk about the positive things we should do for our in-laws to establish a loving, nurturing relationship with them.
