Marriage is an altogether new phase of life. Where is includes happiness and excitement, on the other hand it involves dealing with new relations as well. All new relations require nourishment but your relation with your sister-in-law requires some extra effort if she is a crazy one. She maintains a very close relation with your wife and even you are required to have that same relation with her.
Learn some ways to deal and build relation with your sister-in-law from the below mentioned points.
Gain the trustLetting your sister go with someone else is not an easy task for a sister. Sisters share a very special bond and unconditional love with each other. As they get older, their bond gets stronger. So, your sister-in-law is sharing the most special person of her life. It’s your responsibility now to gain her trust and make her believe you that you will take care of her sister and will not let her feel her place.
Share feelingsYour sister-in-law must be feeling an emptiness in her life after her sister has got married. Take out some alone time to share her feelings. Be a good listener and let her speak out her heart to you. She will feel light and will also help build your relation.
Be kindTry to say nice things even if you do not want to. Thing from the perspective of your sister-in-law before reacting on anything. Be generous and kind.
Treat as a friendYour sister-in-law can be the most loving person to you among your in-laws. Treat her as your friend. Share things with her so that she can feel comfortable and open.
Offer giftsOffer her some gifts without any special occasion. Let her know that she owns a place in your life. Offering a gift will show your care and love affection towards her. If she starts feeling that she own a place in your life, trust, life will become easier.
Give her priorityTaking her about for a dinner or an ice cream treat will not harm you in anyway. Instead it will make your sister-in-law feel even she is a priority in your life. Meeting and hanging out together builds a strong relation.
Lower your expectationsYou could have expected a fun loving and a dear friend in the form of sister-in-law. But things might not turn out to be the same. Accept the reality and try to adjust with her behaviour. Take a step further to share your feelings and happiness with her to make her feel comfortable and be friendly with you.
Never take the bond between sisters for granted. She is probably the closest person in your wife’s life. If you have managed to gain her trust and be friendly, you have surely eased off your life. But while doing all these, do not forget to draw a line between your relation. After all she is your wife’s sister.
