Marry a guy = marry his family!?

Now, I've probably never payed close enough attention during the 11 years I've been with my husband, but now that the most "busy" years of studying and setteling down is mostly over, I find myself strangely drawn to observing the relationships I am a part of by marriage. Sometimes I like what I see, sometimes I don't - and then I confront head-on to correct a bad situation/relationship. I've found that directness and nipping problems in the bud aint always a good thing! Does anyone else want to share stories/problems and funstuff about the inlaws?

When you marry a man aka guy you do become part of his family and vice versa yet it says the two shall become one. That they shall depart from the family and cleave unto one another. Meaning you have his family and he yours. Yet tis your family that should be uppermost important. Thus if those family members on either side interfere you both should let them know as nice as possible to back out and stay put. For it shows respect and love. Hope this helps as it was meant too. Hugs
