Re: In-laws are out of town for 5 days,I & DH will be alone pls suggest ideas to e To make him open up to you, talk about the good things you find in your MIL. Ask him how she managed the household during his younger days and some unforgettable things/moments during that time. Being a mom's boy, he would love to hear good things about his mom, particularly from you, and that will pave way for him opening his mouth, at least to talk about his mother. Then you can gradually divert the topic and get into things you want to talk about. This may be a bit boring for you, but believe me, that will certainly bring him closer to you than before. Since you have five days, start every day with something good about your MIL and then gradually make the things drift your way. That will make keep him happy and in good mood to do whatever you like or wish. As others have mentioned, try to make the most at home, minimizing outings. Try out all those naughty things on bed and in other places, but before that ensure that he really likes them and enjoys it like that. Otherwise, your plans may be derailed. Try to find out what common interests you both have and start working with that. You an introduce surprise elements in that, so that he too enjoys it. Do post your experiences, so that it can serve as a guide to other girls in your league. Good luck!
