    Get to know their habits and get them to know yours too! Have common understandings and frequent conversations to understand what are each others likes and dislikes.

    very common for couples nowadays. to reduce the tension sometimes i stay at my htb's place and he stays at my place on weekends.

    if you're staying with your partner's family, you should really learn to socialize or mingle with them.. and more often than not, it should be a give-and-take relationship

    we stayed with the in-laws for about 3 months while waiting for our house to be ready. everything went well because before we married, i have already a close relationship with his family.

    no way for me man. luckily my partner feels the same way.
    actually i wld be ok with it but my partner's family smokes and i really hate smoke in the house. not mention how dirty the bathroom floor will be (his house's bathroom is really really grimy) so nope

    for my mother-in-law, i tried looking for common interests in both of us and then we bonded over that.

    kinda getting worried and anxious about staying together after marriage. our flat would be coming in another 1 year plus. so definitely be staying together with in-laws.

    let's hope that it would be a good experience for everyone to get used to each other.
