Dear future in-laws, I can’t wait to be a part of your family. I already consider you like my parents and would never differentiate between my maternal home and yours. However, there are a few things I would want you to know about me, which will help us all settle in together and adapt well. Here goes...

1. Kyunki saas bhi kabhi bahu thi

Mother-in-law, you have been through this phase too, haven’t you? A little bit of trust, patience and help is all I need from you to help me adjust in my new home.

2. I am not perfect

Everything is new for me - new home, new rules, new people. I am new to being a wife and daughter-in-law, and I will make mistakes. But one always learns from their mistakes, right? That’s how it will be for me too - have faith.

3. There will be differences

I have fights with my mom and dad, and probably we will have our set of arguments too. However, that does not mean I am being disrespectful or rude. Fights happen in every household, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love each other, right?

4. I like to work

I love my job and I enjoy going to work every day. It is unfair to expect me to leave my job as soon as I get married. I will work and manage to do my bit for the house and family as well, just like my husband will. Just give me a chance.

5. Your son will always be your son

I am not here to take your son away from you; that is not my agenda. He is your son and my husband, and they are two very different roles, so let’s not complicate relationships. I would never come in between you and your son.

6. This is my home now

I will put in all my efforts to settle down in the new home. This is my home now, and I am always there for every single person at home.

7. I would never differentiate

Please do not think that I would differentiate between my maternal home and my new home. I will never differentiate between my parents and you. For me, we all are one big happy family!

8. Please be there for me

There will be times when things will not go my way and I will need you both to support and guide me, just like all parents do for a child. Please be there to comfort me when I’ve had a bad day or a rough experience.

9. I’ll need my space sometimes

Like any other person, I will, at times, want some space too. In those moments, please let me be and I’ll be fine soon.

10. Let’s remove the term “in-laws” from the relationship

You are my father and mother. This marriage has blessed me with two sets of parents and I could not be happier about that. I love you all equally! Similarly, please remove the term “in-laws” from our relationship and make me your daughter.
