DEAR CHRISTINE: 10 commandments for daughters-in-law


Share post:

Dear Christine,
I recently came across an interesting article which I would love to share with readers. It’s called the “Ten Commandments for a Daughter-In-Law”.
In so many cases, mothers-in-law find themselves in constant disagreements with their daughters-in-law and vice versa. Maybe these ten commandments will stop the tension in-laws sometimes face.
If you are a daughter-in-law, take note of the following:
1. Thou shalt love, honour and respect your mother-in-law and father-in-law.
2. Thou shalt allow them complete independence.
3. Thou shalt speak only kindly and loyally about them.
4. Thou shalt not find fault.
5. Thou shalt not visit them too frequently, and never enter their home without knocking.
6. Thou shalt say “thank you” when they do something nice for you or your children.
7. Thou shalt not give them advice unless requested.
8. Thou shalt not deny them access to their grandchildren as a bargaining chip to get what you want.
9. Thou shalt respect their taste in home decorating, though it differs from your own.
10. Thou shalt petition the Heavenly Father, in whose love they abide, for their happiness.
Daughters-in-law should remember that they are providing their children with a blueprint for how they themselves should be treated one day.
– A Mother-in-Law
Dear Mother-in-Law,
I laughed a little when I read this, but I also agree with these commandments. Perhaps somewhere out there, other readers would also want to share their ten rules for mothers-in-law as well. If so, feel free to send them in.
