You’re the newest member of the fam, while he is (probably!) the youngest and you two get along famously with each other. After all, the camaraderie you share with your brother-in-law is pretty unique. Here are 10 more reasons why having a devar is the best thing ever!
And eventually, you start feeling protective of him and begin caring about him just the way you did for your own bhai.
You can just slump down on the couch next to him and watch whatever is playing on the TV and have fun at it. He’s easy to hang around with! #NoDrama
You may have to treat him later to his fav food, but you know he’d always help you out.
Your siblings and your devar seem like relatives-turned-friends who always look forward to meeting each other. It’s so amazing to watch them get along with each other.
While your husband may leave your side at times to meet relatives and friends, your devar will often stick around to make introductions and then quietly fill you in on the quirks of each one. Without him by your side, you might just have died of boredom at never-ending family functions.
He almost takes it upon himself to narrate every small and big event that makes up for the family history of your in-laws. He keeps trying to make you a part of little family traditions and never lets you feel like an outsider to the party.
You are a little formal and reserved with your in-laws, but you can be yourself with him and it’s such a relief to have someone like that around at home, all the time.
He knows you’ll understand and cover up for him at home, if need be. His confidence in you makes you feel even more responsible for him.
You know you’ll always find company in him for food, even if he’s full.
But, you know that he’ll ardently support you, in every possible way and fight for you, if ever the need arises.
