Thoughts, ideas, ponderings and experiences of mothers and daughters by marriage
Are you just starting this journey, this relationship or are you miles down the road of being an “in-law” (Or “outlaw” as my father-in-law has called me!)? Interviews, conversations, stories and the like will frame our exploration of this very special and important relationship. At all times and in all ways we’ll approach and treat this topic with great respect for all parties and with consideration for each person’s perspective and experience. After all, we are family. And if there’s one thing that should characterize family, it’s love. And we know that this is what love looks like —
Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; 5 love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; 6 love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth. 7 Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail.
How does this look when acted out, spoken and lived out in the MIL – DIL relationship? And when it isn’t?
