Update for Readers

Hi SAIL readers,

I wanted to let you know that I will be going on vacation for a couple of weeks. During that time I won’t be posting updates on FB, Twitter (@desiinlaws), or on this site. Please feel free to email me at and I will respond soon after returning and/or keep posting on this site. I hope all of you continue your efforts toward improving in-law relationships. Take Care and remember you’re stronger than you think!

Welcome to South Asian In-Laws (AKA Desi In-Laws)

In-Law relationships can be challenging.
As a Licensed Therapist (LCSW) and a daughter-in-law, I want to provide a forum where we can share our experiences. My wish is that we try to give our challenges a positive spin.
I encourage you to visit the Forum to post about your experiences (anonymously, if you’d like), read about others, and respond with support, advice, prayers, and hope. Frequently I will respond with my take on posts, articles on in-law relationships, and my own personal experiences.
