What Do You Want From Me?
Learning to Get Along With In-lawsBook - 2009
When we marry, we believe the bond is between only two individuals. Few of us realize the power that inlaws will exert over our lives. But the in-laws we acquire when we marry affect our quality of life--our marriage, family, personal comfort, and long-term well-being--for better or worse. What Do You Want From Me? takes a fresh look at the age-old problem of managing conflict with in-laws, offering practical help for dealing with problems that are both immediate ("How do I deal with my in-laws now?") and strategic ("How can I change the nature of my in-laws' demands?"). Terri Apter, a psychologist whose books on family dynamics have received international acclaim, draws on nearly two decades of psychological research to pinpoint the sources of tension between in-laws and explore the ways in which we can build healthy relationships with the in-laws in our lives.
