We’ve heard all the scary stories about in-laws. Not everyone gets lucky and many end up with in-laws that they just don’t get along with. And then comes all the crying and drama and all the theatrics. We’ve heard it from our friends and family and relative and all the tv serials that not all in-laws are nice and it is no fun being around our in-laws or living in a joint family where you are forced into gender roles. But that’s not always true. Sometimes your in-laws may be way better than you could’ve ever imagined. A majority of us have lived in nuclear families in metro cities and we want the same when we get married because we want our freedom but there are other things that we don’t know. A joint family can provide many other joys of living with a family. So, if you’re thinking against living with your in-laws, think again unless of course, they despise you. Here are some things you need to know about the benefits of living with your in-laws if you have an amazing set of in-laws.

1. Your in-laws can help imbibe some traditions and values in your child’s life. Today, most of us are not very savvy with our rich culture and traditions and values but the older generation knows it all and they can be the ones telling your kid the story of Mahabharata and Radha Krishna.

2. When you have those tiring days at work you won’t come home to an empty house. You’ll come home to a house where someone will make you a cup of tea and just feed you till all the stress goes away.

3. You won’t need a babysitter on most days because your in-laws will be more than happy to spend some time with their grandchild or grandchildren.

4. You won’t have to juggle with the household chores or handling your maid. You won’t even have to leave the house keys to your maid because your in-laws will have it handled.

5. Festivals are going to much more fun and interesting. Your family celebration will be nice and big and traditional.

6. When you have a fight with your partner, your in-laws will be there to guide you and work through your issues with each other.

7. We can’t deny the thrill of doing it while your in-laws are in the other room or those stolen kisses here and there.

8. In case of an emergency, you won’t have run around and struggle and juggle because your in-laws will always have your back. They may not be your parents but they are family and your parents' in-law. They may not be loving and warm but they will always have your back.
