How many of you are sister in laws?
How many of you happen to be a sister in law to your husband's one sibling?
What's it supposed to be like?
Do you think it's more difficult to be a good sister in law, if you didn't have a sister growing up?
I have this warped sense of how things "should be," in Pleasantville.
Maybe I'm the one going about it the wrong way. I don't know.
What I do know is that I don't expect anyone to be like me, but I do expect to be respected and included.
Only because the same goes for the other side. Heaven forbid if you don't contact them on their birthday, send them what they want for their showers, remember to check in with them when they've been under the weather.
What's funny is, the same isn't expected to give back. Whereas I don't believe you give to get back, I do believe it's nice to see the other side trying, to the best of their capabilities.
Is it okay to not include the sister in law in things? Even though you know that if you ever attempted to exclude your sister in law's husband, there would be drama.
