HOW DO I HANDLE MY BOSSY FATHER-IN-LAW?

DEAR DALI MAMA:

My wife’s father is very bossy and orders me around in my own house when he comes to visit. How do I handle this?

–Fed up Husband (United States)

DEAR FED UP:

You might want to start by telling him you want to have a talk with him and going off, just the two of you, and having a friendly chat.

Of course, this doesn’t guarantee that your father-in-law will come around, and even if he does, it’s likely to be a process, but it’s worth a try.

You mention that he’s very bossy so it sounds like you’re not the only one he orders around. If nothing else, unless his behavior starts becoming abusive, keep thanking him as spirit for creating and giving life to the woman you love.
