Relationships with In-Laws

They are great while you are dating.  You love them while you are engaged.  They turn into monsters after you get married.  The Interrupted Expectation of your In-Laws -  Mother, Father, Brother, Sister, Nieces and Nephews - in-law.

Okay, not every one's situation is this way (PTL) but so many of the girls that I talk to feel this way.  They dread holidays and family visits.  It becomes a fight every November to figure out how to work out the different family schedules. 

Whether you have a good or bad situation.  Whether you are the out-law or the in-law, the situation can always improve.
