In our culture, where the usual tendency of family and friends is to get into the Nitty Gritty of personal life, the baseline is how much you let others cross the boundaries. The first and the foremost important skill that you can apply is to use the body language in the form of facial expressions and gestures while discouraging other party not to interfere in your personal matters. Most of the wife’s fall prey to this trap while discussing their personal life starting from their mother, sister and further leading to friends. Wife usually adopts the stance of a victim role so to attract the husband’s sympathy while the same stance is adopted by mother. Unfortunately such paradigms don’t work out and the husbands prefers to choose the place where there is peace. Also husbands should not take the responsibility of getting things settled between the mother and the wife rather husband should advice wife to settle things herself between the two. Interestingly husband’s are a very good observer and they actually know where the problem lies but wife’s should always keep the baseline of their communication on being respectful. Reply with patience while bringing forward your true emotions rather than defending them. In a nutshell follow the protocols of maintaining relationships after marriage and always get a preview of what marriage would look like before you tie the knots.
