I would never have guessed... but...women often tell me that one of the frequent triggers... that causes the explosion... of the toxic resentments that destroys the in-law relationship... IS THE HOLIDAYS.
More specifically, HOLIDAY TRADITIONS. Now it isn't holiday traditions that are the problem.. it's the UNDERLYING year-long misunderstandings and resentments tha are the problem. The day in and day out lack of love and respect that SURFACES during the holidays.
I will do things backwards. Before we discuss the HOLIDAY TRADITION problem...I'll give you the only answer. When it comes to In-Laws..or any issue.. the six word Scripture below is YOUR answer and mine. Ask yourself if you've done it. If you haven't.. you still have time to do it before the holiday season arrives:
"Find out what pleases the Lord" - Ephesians 5:10
