When you first get married, it’s a time full of excitement and hope for the new life you are going to share with your partner. However, that excitement can quickly fade once you start spending more time with your in-laws. Some in-laws are great, making it easy to get along with them and spend time together.

Encompass Connection Center helps couples learn how to resolve conflict, including conflict with in-laws, and create fulfilling, productive relationships. We offer a free relationship assessment to determine your relationship’s strengths and potential threats, some of which might stem from your relationships with your in-laws. For more help, look into our RINGS Experience, which includes marriage strengthening exercises and a coaching model to help build real intimacy and growth skills.
