Overview

You may be quick to blame your in-laws for your marriage problems, but in reality the biggest part of the problem isn't really your in-laws, it's your husband's loyalty to them. When a man marries, he is supposed to transfer his loyalty from his parents to his wife. His behavior plays a key role in how well you get along with his parents. The goal of this book is to help you gain your husband's loyalty.

Jenna Barry offers helpful, heartfelt advice about how to have a terrific marriage in spite of difficult in-laws. As a wife who has personally experienced the despair that comes from having an unsupportive partner, she suggests specific things to say and do to gain your husband's loyalty. This book won't teach you how to become best friends with your in-laws, but it will teach you how to think and behave in a new way so they no longer have any power over you. "A Wife's Guide to In-laws" has over 40 cartoons, two fun chapters written just for your hubby, and worksheets to help the two of you reach loving compromises about common problem issues.

    I highly recommend this book!

    I feel like this book was written specifically for me, and I bet if you read it you'll feel the same way. It's nice to know I'm not alone in my in-law problems, and that there is help available. The author has experienced many of the same feelings and situations that I have, and she offers very applicable advice. Now I have renewed hope for my marriage!

    I loved it!

    I had fun reading this helpful book. I struggle with a controlling mother-in-law who manipulates her son with guilt whenever he doesn't revolve his life around her. Now that I've read this book, I know how to encourage my husband to have the courage to stand up to his mom. I'm excited to apply what I've learned in order to have a stronger marriage!

    Life-changing book!

    If you and your husband argue about difficult in-laws, then you need this book! I've read several books about in-laws, but this is the only one that has a couple of chapters written just for husbands. In those chapters Jenna uses sports analogies and even cartoons about monkeys to explain how to be a loyal husband.
