When you get married, you not only get married to your partner but also to your partner’s family. Suddenly you realize that everything in your life gets double – happiness, love, siblings, friends, and parents!
How do I make my mother-in-law to treat me as her daughter is a million dollar question. The relationship between a mother in law and a daughter in law is the most important relationship in a family. When they get along well with each other, they can raise a perfect family together and when they do not the family breaks.
When you are living with your parents, you don’t have to impress your mother or actually take efforts to get along with her. The bond is natural since it is right from when you were in her womb.
When it comes to your mother in law, let’s be honest, you really have to work on getting to know her and bond with her for the first few months or maybe years!
Exactly like how you dated her son to get to know him and bond with him. Make sense right?
So here you go… some tried and tested tricks to make your mother in law fall in love with you and treat you as her daughter:
Go on dates
Aren’t dates the best way to get to know each other more?
Have you thought about the fact that even your mother in law might love to do some girly stuff like you?
Yes…go for shopping together or plan for salon dates where you can indulge in the world of beauty together.
You can also try to catch up on some cup coffees and go for movies…just you and her.
You see this will help you to create a bond with her just like how you created with her son!
All mother in laws loves to cook for her family. She knows everything about the taste buds of each member and this might help you to know about the same as well.
Have you heard the saying that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach?
BINGO! Learn from her about your husband’s favorite dishes and this will be an opportunity to not only bond with your MIL but also an opportunity to make your man happy!
A well-read mind is a healthy mind. You can exchange good books with each other and broaden your horizon. This will help you both to understand each other’s perspective on life.
What can be a better idea than this to let the other person know about your hobbies and things that you are interested in?
If not reading, you guys can always take up a common hobby! If you are a health conscious person, you can always encourage your MIL to join you in your workout sessions.
A fit family is always a healthy family.
Show love and care towards her husband and her son of course
Nothing makes a mother happier than to know that there’s somebody other than her who loves her family as much as she does!
So girl, go for it…make sure your presence enlightens their world.
Plan for a good family time
It can also be a family picnic where you can bond over doing some cool activities together. Once in a while you also plan for a family dinner! Food is the best thing to bond over.
