Hi. I want to start by explaining that this is not my first or school language so i can´t express myself as i wanted to. I was raised in a european country in a european family (mixed mariage) and so i'm not always sure of indian rules. I would like to know the basic rules of visiting an indian family (for dinner ex). 1 Question i have when visiting a friend of mine who lives with inlaws is "who do i consider the housewife; if i want to give a present to my friend to say thanks for all the work and attention of inviting my family. She has all the work and she was so kind in inviting my big family and i want to give a present but i also have to give to inlaws? Sometimes i want to give a very nice present to that friend and her babygirl because she is so nice to me but i give a less expensive one because i see that she feels that she needs to give me and my kids also very expensive presents. I don't like this because then we are so worried abaut the presents that we don't invite eachother.
