Hi all, I placed one thread in IndusLadies about pregnancy. And I got many suggestions from the friends of IL. It was very helpful. And now want Solution in this matter. I don't know it is big matter or not. But I feel I should share this so that I can get some helpful tips on this. Its about to end 2nd year of our marriage. I am happy wid my DH but some small issues(seems big to me) that are worrying me. Do you gals also think that after marriage our parents should also get same respect as we do to our in-laws. My mom n dad are alone after marriage of 3 sis (us). And we 3 of us are so concerned about mom n dad. Now at this age somebody should be there wid them but, we ladies after marriage has boundation on that. But atleast our(DH family) family should always be attached wid them so they don't feel like alone. My mom n dad always visit to in-laws if they are there at home town. But I think they should also visit to my parents. If there is any function they should invite my parents also. My parents do all formalities if they visit for a week, instead of having lots of work to finish up the pending things. But not same from other side. Why it is like that, I am very upset wid this. MIL says, if u want respect u also have to give respect. But doesn't follows these. My parents call n wish everybody on their bdays(in age of 60's) but these people doesn't wish my family members on any occasion. Relationship is built on these small things only. But why our DH doesn't understand that. My parents gave us a cash to buy things for your own after marriage. Becoz moving from hometown to metro wid those things was difficult. I also did not said anything bcoz till then it was not neccessary, but bcoz now i m pregnant and it's already 2 yrs i think i should have everything wht i needed and my kid will require. But now how to say to my DH, that the money given by my parents was to get comfortable in new house. But i don't know what happened about that money. nobody tells me and I also don't ask becoz of hesitation. How to ask for this to my DH. I did'nt get anything on occaasions like(bday, diwali, teeja, anniversary). Till some time i can understand if some financial problem is there. But how long, don't u think they should give these by themselves bcoz i m newly married. It's ok if my DH didnt have that much package but he is US and getting gud package and my BIL is also getting gud package. My FIL is getting pension. We are 5 members in family, instead of that we don't have those necessary things. Why?????? Adjusting and compromising is ok till some pt. ,but how long.
