Create boundaries with your parents and in-laws


  1. Establish expectations with your parents.
    Decide what topics you'd like to keep between yourselves, when you'd like to share certain information with others, and how you will talk about your marriage to other people.
  2. Be independent.
    Don't let your parents control you; instead, learn to become your own guide.
  3. Set limits with in-laws.
    To set boundaries effectively in your relationship, it's important to discuss issues with your partner and mutually agree on a course of action. Allow your partner to execute the boundaries, and always be kind and gentle when setting them. If you need to speak to your in-laws about boundaries, give your partner a chance to speak on their behalf first. Lastly, be cautious about accepting gifts if there are expectations attached to them.
