5 Ways to Build a Great Relationship with Your mother in Law

Reorganizing a family after marriage can be challenging. You have more parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents, and then you have to get to know them and build relationships with them. 

 But one of the most challenging relationships is the relationship between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law. There is no guarantee that everyone will like and get along. Your mother-in-law’s jokes aside, getting along with your spouse’s family is a great blessing in the long run. Even if you go the wrong way at first, there is always something you can do to improve your relationship with her. 

Below are 5 fool-proof tips to help you get on your mother in law’s good side regardless of whether or not you naturally get along with her.

1. Always remain polite

Under no circumstances should you ever be rude or act in a snide way regardless how you are feeling that day. Nothing turns off a mother in law more than someone who is only polite at certain times and unpleasant at others.

2. Don’t forget your manners

Show her that you know your please and thank you. The more you say these two things the better.

3. Speak nicely about her son

Never ever talk badly about her son in any way no matter how comfortable you may be feeling about sharing things with her. She is his mother after all and all you will get is her protective mother instincts (or claws) if you ever talk badly about your partner.

4. Get to know her

As much as she will want to know what you are about, it is good if you show the same interest in her. Don’t just be answering her question, show her that you actually want to get to know her more and be closer in any way that you can.

5. Compliment her

Mother in laws love a good compliment and they will never tire of it! So, when she cooks or organizes something be sure to let her know great she is. Say these things with a warm smile to show that you are actually genuine about it.


Just as you should communicate your feelings to your mother-in-law, she should also be able to do the same with you. Take a moment to hear how she feels and what she needs from you as a daughter-in-law. Ask questions, such as “What can I do to improve our relationship?” Everyone has their own needs, so take some time to make sure these needs are met. A great relationship is two ways. 

 Sometimes it is difficult for mothers to let go of their children and watch them marry and have another woman in their lives. This is everyone’s setting. Try to understand and put yourself in their shoes. Think about how certain situations make you feel, and how you would feel if you were in their place. 

 No matter what your relationship is with your mother-in-law, you must know that you have one very important thing in common: you all love your service staff and are proud of your service staff.
