In the premiere episode of Our Perfect Wedding Season 4, we saw how pressure from one’s family can affect your relationship. Melusi’s very traditional family put pressure on Puseletso, who holds strong religious views, to bare children before getting married.

The couple was able to compromise and reach an agreement that made all parties happy.

Dealing with the in-laws isn’t always easy, so here are a few tips to help you out:
• Good fences make good neighbours. It is good to set up boundaries to ensure that they do not interfere too much.
• Always be open about what bothers you. Communication is key for all relationships in one’s life.
• If your spouse if having issues with the in-laws, step in and mediate as soon as possible.
• Do not run to your parents to solve your marital issues. This will only alienate your partner and cause more rifts between them and your family.
• Make time for your relationship away from your families. Your primary concern after marriage is building your new family, take time to nurture it.
