You can have a GREAT marriage, even if your in-laws aren’t so great!
When a man marries, he is supposed to transfer his loyalty from his parents to his wife. His behavior plays a key role in how well you get along with his parents. As a wife who has personally experienced the despair that comes from having an unsupportive partner, Jenna D. Barry suggests specific things to say and do to gain your husband’s loyalty. A Wife’s Guide to In-laws has over 40 cartoons, 2 chapters written just for your husband, and 20+ worksheets to help you reach loving compromises about common problem issues. If you need hope and encouragement, this book is for you!
Thank you so much for organizing these usable, down-to-earth ideas on how to deal with difficult situations. I have found myself referring back to this book for a few years now. Doesn't get old. Great for both the old and young, who need ways to manage difficult relationehips.
After reading the book I thought Jenna Barry may have secretly been in my home for the last 28 years. She was so right on. She described my Not So Great White Shark In-laws: type 2 to the T. While I won’t need this book to deal with my in-laws. I will be a better mother-in-law for my daughter-in-laws. I will request that my sons read the chapters for husbands so they will be the best husbands they can for their wives. I knew I was going to do thing differently with my kids ( like NOT chewing on their wives) and after reading the book I have the tools to be the best mother-in-law to the wonderful young ladies God has blessed me with.
"Best Book for both Wife and Husband!" This book is great! It showed me that I could change things about myself that could drasticly change the problems even if no one else did anything at all. Plus my husband was willing to read it and found it funny and insightful. It's one of the only times he ever admitted his mother might have boundary issues!
"Everything I had hoped for and more!" I was amazed at how Jenna was able to take complicated ideas and break them down into simple concepts (often with fun cartoons) that were easy to grasp, especially in the chapters written for husbands. I really identified with the scenarios she described, and I felt very empowered throughout the book. “A Wife’s Guide to In-laws” prepared me to handle just about every situation involving in-laws. I loved the husband/wife worksheets at the end of the book. This is an EXCELLENT book. Great advice. My marriage will never be the same!
