by Susan Forward




Overview -

From Susan Forward, Ph.D., the New York Times bestselling author of Toxic Parents and Men Who Hate Women and the Women Who Love Them, comes a practical and powerful book that will help couples cope with terrible and toxic in-laws.

Toxic in-laws are in-laws who create genuine chaos through various assaults--aggressive or subtle--on you and your marriage. Toxic in-laws come in a wide variety of guises: "The Critics," who tell you what you're doing wrong; "The Controllers," who try to run you and your partner's life; "The Engulfers," who make incessant demands on your time; "The Masters of Chaos," who drain you and your partner with their problems; and "The Rejecters," who let you know they don't want you as part of their family.

Susan Forward draws on real-life voices and stories of both women and men struggling to free themselves from the frustrating, hurtful, and infuriating relationships with their toxic in-laws. Dr. Forward offers highly effective communication and behavioral techniques for getting through to partners who won't or can't stand up to their parents. Next, she lays out accessible and practical ways to reclaim your marriage from your in-laws. She shows you what to say, what to do, and what limits to set. If you follow these strategies, you may not turn toxic in-laws into the in-laws of your dreams, but you will find some peace in your relationship with them.
