Are In-laws Really That Important?

If you are dating a guy/girl and his/her parents are against the relationship, what would you do?

If caught in this predicament, I  tell the parents to go to hell and then informed them that they have already lived their lives and now it's my time. Matter of fact, I do not believe in having relationships with in-laws. Not that I am implying disrespect, I am simply advocating to keep them out of your relationships. When you do, the union tend to last.

Anxiously awaiting responses.

neelsel you see me i no go school,

I have said it many times.

But you that went to school you use big,big words to try and impress.

But your English dose not flow.

Read the whole forum up and down , noone uses the big big words you use.

Every one here uses simple words.

But you you nawa.

Your words are big but nothing flows.

And then the Nigerian English inbetween.

I can clearly see you have a comprehension problem. Please for the sake of not starting another useless argument go back and reread my posts.

NO, I did not in anyway implied that I used your home movies to judge your culture with regards to in-laws relationships. I simply stated that I noticed that it is a rather prevalent practice in the movies and was just wondering if it extends in real life.

Why is it that everything is blown out of proportion on this website.

No I am not Nigerian and again I say without fear or favour, I would limit my in-laws(if i decide on having) out of my relationship. And I am dead serious.

Ignorance is a curse.

Osegewa and Naija4life thanks for making sense. I once did a case study at my University to find out why many students who are otherwise deemed academically inclined performed so poorly on exams, and it was discovered that comprehension played a major role.

Having said all that, I propose that those who misconceptualized what I asked should therefore, revisit the question, and as we say in the islands "come again"

To add my two-bits. I believe it's a cultural thing. I have been a frequent viewer of Nigerian home movies and have been appalled at the magnitude of authority given to "in-laws" especially the mothers. I found it strange because in my part of the world, in-laws have to assume their place and would be reprimanded if they attempt to exceed their limits.

For the person who made the comments about me being disrespectful to my in-laws, FYI I do not have in-laws, and if I ever decide on having, I would personally advised them on their limitations. Afterall OUR BIBLE clearly stated "a man should leave his mother and father and cleave to his wife" Thank you for your time,

Well, i guess they are. Just to complete the quota

of a family contributing their own fair share of joy

and sorrow, peace and war.

Remember you are a woman. if you pray for the early demise of

In-laws then you will never leave to be an In-law because your words

are very potent so when your children male or female are ready to get

married wop and you are gone. All you need to do is go down on your kneels

and pray for good In-laws and believe me God will hear your prayer

and grant you your heart desire.

Still me

Of course they are important. the mom is prolly the one u want to get close to, because she can break/make the relationship. if she likes you, then unles u screw it up for yourself, u pretty much have a very good chance at a peaceful relationship which can lead to marriage, but if the opposite is the case, omo forget o, u ain't goin nowhere. to answer ur question, i guess it's up to the guy in question n prolly how bad it gets; there's a limit to how much ''hateration'' i can take.

with that kind of talk am sure you have problems with in laws because that is very disrespectful talk,

I would never allow my Daughter to go out with someone that talks like that.

And believe me Non of them would.

Problem solved,

if you really think like that you need to look for an orphan
