Sure. It was helpful to think about these various issues and concerns of marriage. Especially good for someone who has not yet been married, or is not very familiar with marriages and the issues faced.
It is all memorable.
He brings to life the meaning and emphasis of his own work. Well done.
You should sit down with your spouse prior to marriage and figure out what roles your in-laws should play in your lives, what each of you might be expecting and wanting to accept, what you in-laws might be thinking, and then also how much involvement you want to accept from your various in-laws, and what kind of boundaries will you both agree to set and to enforce within your marriage towards in-laws.
Helpful. Well done.
