Husbands play such an important role in a woman’s life, so wouldn’t it be great if they could bond with our family the same way they bond with theirs. It brings out a sense of satisfaction when you see your husband hit it off with your parents. You feel like freezing the moment when your husband bonds with your younger siblings over dating issues. Well, here are a few ways that assure you of the joy of having your husband bond with your family.
1. Find common ground
You will be surprise to see how similar your father and husband are. This is precisely when the saying “daughters marry their fathers” hits you. Find a common liking such as a football/cricket match with drinks to allow the two most important men in your life bond with each other without getting an inkling of your set up.
2. Younger siblings
If your husband has younger siblings, he is likely to bond with yours in the same way. If there are suggestions you know your husband will be able to address better, divert your siblings to him. They will automatically bond like siblings.
3. Family vacations
In the same way that you go for vacations with your husband’s family, drag him along with you while you take go on a trip with your side of the family. It would be even better if you go to a place that will interest him or a place that he knows inside out. It will boost his enthusiasm knowing that he can impress you with his services of being a personal tour guide.
4. Brother and brother-in-law
Try and get your husband and brother to go out for a drink. They might bond over drunk conversations better than sober ones. Although, it might be hard to make sure they remember it the next morning.
5. Show your love towards his parents
If you go out of your way to show your love for his parents and bond with them, your husband will automatically feel obliged to do the same with your parents. All you need to do is set the stage and bring him along with you when you go out for family dinners or coffee.
6. Bond over good food
If your husband is coming along with you to your parents house, try and get your mother to cook something your husband relishes. It will make him feel a sense of belonging in your family. If your husband is a good cook, try and get him to bond with your mother in the kitchen over good food recipes.
