It is only in the first few years that you need to make small compromises to make sure that your married life is comfortable. You must understand that your mother-in-law is also trying to get used to your regular way of life. Obviously, she has set the rules of the house, and everyone has been practising it for years. In case there is something that is bothering you, do not question it straight away.

In fact, the best approach would be to ignore it for a few days. And, instead of picking up fights, appreciate the good things in the household. This way, whenever you would make a suggestion for a change, she will be able to take it positively rather than considering it as an insult of her way of life.

Just the way you have disagreements with your mom at home, you will have differences with your mom-in-law as well. This is absolutely natural since you both are a part of one family now. But, the issues get worse when you involve your husband. He is obviously not going to be able to take sides in such a situation, as he would definitely hurt one of you in the process.

The most convenient solution is that you and your mom-in-law resolve issues by talking things out. This way, you will also understand why the problem arose in the first place, and be able to avoid it in future. More than anything else, your mother-in-law will love you for keeping things between yourselves.

This is a mistake that many daughters-in-law make. You are, by default, a priority in your husband's life. So, there is no point in comparing the things he does for you and his mother. Just like your parents are indispensable to you, his parents are indispensable to him.

If your husband shares some special things with his mom, let him do so. There is absolutely no wrong intention in that. If you try to resist those special moments he shares with his family, you will only end up looking like the bad one in the whole equation.

There are simple things you can do to make your mom-in-law feel welcomed in your life. For instance, if your husband brings home two sarees, let your mom-in-law make the first choice. When you go out together and your mom-in-law is accompanying you, make sure she sits in the front seat.

These things may seem childish, but they will definitely have a long-lasting positive effect on your married life. After a while, your mother-in-law will begin to reciprocate. Do not be surprised if she insists that you have the first choice of the sarees or sit in the front seat with her son!
