I married your son, not your house chore

It is a myth that when a son gets married and a new daughter-in-law arrives in the family, everything changes. Some daughters-in-law are well trained and well mannered. They don’t come to change the family routine. Read the following:

The new wife (progressive Indian woman of today) was being welcomed at the husband’s home in a traditional manner.As expected she gave a speech:

” My dear family, I thank you for welcoming me in my new home and family”, she said.”Firstly, my being here does not mean that I would want to change your way of life, your routine.”

“No, I will never do that, never in a million years”.

“What do you mean my child?” Asked the father-in-law.”What I mean, dad, is (looking at her father in law):

Those who used to wash dishes must carry on washing them.

Those who used to do the laundry must carry on doing it.

Those who cooked shouldn’t stop at my account, and those who used to clean should continue cleaning”.”Then what are you here for?” asked the mother in law.

“As for me, I’m here just to entertain your son!”

I’m so lucky as I don’t stay with my in-laws but if I do, I would expect what is the outcome. There is nothing more comfortable like your own home. I mean MY home. If I feel like it, I clean. If I don’t, I’ll leave it.

    most modern women these days play different roles at home. Some even provide to the family entirely while the husband do all the housework and taking care of the kids.
