When your son brings his future wife home, it’s hard to accept that he has a new woman for life. His mother may feel she is replaced and try to prove that she’s still an important person, but it can cause arguing and hurt feelings. We should avoid those things and make the future daughter-in-law feel at home. She will be a member in your family and should be treated like that.

Instructions

1.    Invite her for a visit. Be sure to keep it only immediate family whether it’s dinner or just tea party. Family meeting is a high-pressure situation and can bring opposite results. Avoid formal behavior and keep the mood light. Suggest that she view the family’s album or video. This helps she feels like a member in your family and connecting to everyone.

2.    Introduce her by her name and then her status. Don’t introduce her such as “my son’s fiancée” or “my son’s girlfriend”. This makes her feel not important. She, of course, has a name, so use it to introduce her to other people. Says “This is Heather, Bobby’s fiancée”. While this may seem trivial, your future daughter-in-law will feel more welcomed.

3.    Invite her for a family meeting or family event by yourself instead of inviting via your son. This is a sign of respect and consideration. Avoid talking to her since it can cause uncomfortable for both of you.

4.    Offer to meet your son's in-laws before the wedding. Try to form a relationship with your daughter-in-law’s family such as parents and siblings, if any. If everyone knows each other, holidays can be easier and the wedding will be a joyful memory rather than a meet and greet. If there are any conflicts between the two families, meet each other as soon as possible. This helps the conflict or problem to be solved before wedding.

5.    Stay back. One thing the daughter-in-law wants to do is taking care of your son. It can make any mother in the world get sad, but it’s good. She shares the love to your son and can’t replace you. She will feel uncomfortable if the mother-in-law invades the couple’s space. This not only makes your daughter-in-law unfamiliar but also affects your son’s feeling. After all, your son loves this girl and he surely hopes you will, too.

·         Compliments are useful.

·         Don’t say any about your son’s worries over his future wife.

·         Don’t exclude her or cause embarrassing situations.
