The In-laws Dun Dun DUN!

Listen to The In-Laws HERE

Before we start check out our new venture into writing. We have 2 articles out so far. The first is one about inviting pollinators into your garden. Check that out HERE. And the second is about budget friendly date ideas. That is available HERE. If you have any other ideas you’d like to hear us discuss, shoot us a message on one of our social media accounts. We love to hear from our listeners!

Today, we talked about something everyone has if they’re married. In-laws!! While we have been pretty fortunate in our relationships, it is still a relationship that takes intentionality in order to nurture and develop. And unlike your spouse, you don’t get to choose them. They’re part of the package when you get married. We reflected on the beginning of your relationship with each of our husband’s families. And on some of the horror stories from our friends. Again, we are extremely fortunate.

You’ll want to check out the end of the episode where we talked about the fantasy land we live in where we are going to be the perfect in-laws when our kids all get married. Make sure and listen to that and hold us to it in years to come. Haha!

Have you heard our episode about the effect of both order on your family. Check that out HERE. It was a fun episode.

Lastly, we have a favor to ask of our listeners. Would you consider sharing us with your friends? If you enjoy our witty banter, maybe your friend will also. We love to bring the fun to you but we also have a goal to grow.
