    My inlaws were completely against me before marriage and even after marriage. They do not like the fact that I earn as much as their son and they cannot suppress me. How can I respect such people?

    Article is very nice....But sometimes you can not just change the mindset of the another person who is 50/60 years old...We should learn to maintain the distance gracefully

    I don't agree completely, as in-laws were every time thinking something bad should happen to my parents & brothers. they never change, they just want son & their daughter to b around them & nothingelse.

    Nice Article.. Thanks for posting it. Esp. I liked the Strategies for a Positive Mindset. This will surely help to develop/maintain in-law relationship

    Can not completely agree with that. after my marriage my hubby and in-laws were praying death of my parents and brother so that they can get ownership in my father's property its never possible for me to accept them as my own parents.
