Gaining a son-in-law can be one of the best parts about watching your child fall in love and commit spending their lives with another human being. You might be eager to have a strong relationship with their partner, including them in family vacations and traditions, and finding common hobbies that the two of you can bond over.
However, some parents might feel a little wary about getting close to your new son-in-law, whether that’s because of things that have happened in the past or because you don't really like who they are.
Either way, your son-in-law has things they’d like you to know, but are probably a bit scared to say to you. Read on to find out the 30 things that your son-in-law wants to tell you.
He Will Listen to Your Child’s Needs
A big characteristic of a successful marriage is one where both partners listen to each other. Your son-in-law wants you to know he’s all ears and will listen when your child brings something to the table, even if it's something that’s hard to talk about.
He Wants You to Reach Out More
Communication can be a funny thing, because often times both people just wish the other person would pick up the phone and say hello. If you haven’t chatted with your son-in-law in a while, give them a ring and say hello.
He Wishes You’d Help with the Wedding
He wishes you’d be around more for the wedding plans, whether financially or just to support the couple during what can be a bit of a stressful time.
He is Trying to Figure You Out
Relationships can be tricky, and a lot of times when your son-in-law is in the room with you, silent, he’s working hard to figure you out and trying to understand how you really feel about him.
