Recent research from the University of Michigan has shown how important it is to maintain good relationship with in-laws on the part of husbands, as it can hold the key to a long and happy marriage.

In the case of husbands, who have a positive relationship with their in-laws, the risk of divorce is 20% less. But, this may not work for women, as wives who get along well with in-laws are at a 20% risk of divorce. This may happen because wives may get too involved with their husband's family to the extent where they begin to interfere.

When men get along well with their in-laws, it increases the bonding between the husband and the wife. But in the case of women it could be different, as women do not perceive relationships with their in-laws in the same way.

"Because relationships are so important to women, their identity as a wife and mother is central to their being. They interpret what their in-laws say and do as interference into their identity as a spouse and parent," researchers said.
