My dearest future mother-in-law, In a few days, I’ll walk down the aisle and will become the wife to your amazing son, and daughter in law to you. I don’t need to tell you how special he is, because you already know, more than anyone else.
While everyone has been telling me as to how my life will change after marriage, how I need to take care of your son and the whole family, and how I will be considered as mature right after I get married. During the initial phase, and always after that, I only want you to be standing by my side and overlooking the silliest mistakes I may make.
Here are 8 honest things I want to tell you with all my heart before getting married.
1. I am not coming to take away your son
He will be my husband, but he will always be your beloved son, and no one, trust me no one can ever take that place. Not even me.
You will forever be his first love, a precious bond that I always aim to protect
2. I will try and feed him with the same love, care and desi ghee
I might not make the gobi paranthas as yummy as you do, but I will try and feed him with the same love & care.
3. Try and accept me as your daughter and not your daughter in law
After we tie the knot, it is not just him and me who are bound by holy matrimony, but also you and me, forever. Thus, I want you to love and trust me as your own kids.
4. Thank you for raising an incredible man that he is
He knows how to love, respect and be kind to everyone around him. He knows how a woman holds an equal right in this beautiful union of hearts known as marriage, and it’s all because of you.
5. You and I are both equally important to him
He might get a little busier, or not call/see you often because of his new life after marriage, but this doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you anymore. You will always have a special place in his heart, a place that I can never replace.
6. I am not here to compete with you
Or create any situation where he has to choose one between you and me. Everybody has its own place in each other’s lives, and no one can replace that.
7. I want your home to be my home too
Adjusting in a new family isn’t always the easiest thing to do, and nobody understands this more than you do as once upon a time, you were a newly wedded daughter-in-law too.
I just want you to accept me wholly in your heart and home, both.
8. And finally, thank for giving away the son that you cherish the most!
I know how hard it is to share your most prized possession with anyone, but trust me I will always try to love and care for him as much as you do.
