Linda Goes East just published a guest post from me, and it’s titled “How I Built a Good Relationship with My Chinese Mother-in-Law“. Here’s an excerpt from the post:
If you’ve read my blog over the years, you know I love to gush about my mother-in-law here in China. I’ve written about everything from how she made a ring for me, simply because I complimented hers, to learning her special recipe for tangyuan. It’s easy to think we were always this close.
But you’d be wrong.
See, it wasn’t always a given that my mother-in-law and I would have a good relationship. In fact, from the beginning I wasn’t even sure the family would even accept me.
Months before I first visited John’s family home, he did the “big reveal” to his parents – that he was dating a foreigner!That led to an infamous quote from John’s father – that while it was OK for John to be friends with a foreign girl, he should not date foreign girls.
