When two people have chosen to make a commitment to building a future together, they generally get married and begin raising a family. They do well when they are alone together, but there are many occasions when they are expected to spend time with their own families. For the person who is attending an event at the home of their spouse, it can be a difficult social gathering if they do not get along well with the family. Marriage and the in-laws do not always mix, but it can change over time if all parties practice patience.
There are many opportunities for getting along with the loved ones of a spouse, but there are just as many times when misunderstandings can derail any chance for everyone to find a way to get along. It can be a difficult road for the person who feels caught between their spouse and their family.
