   In-laws: It’s All Relative describes many of the common situations that might arise as new couples begin their lives together, and aids them in avoiding potential pitfalls. The book is a valuable resource for both teacher and student in bride (kallah) and groom (chattan) classesbefore marriage and would make an appropriate shower gift to start the young couple – and their in-laws – on the right path.

 

   Commonsense advice and humane values in this book combine to ease the transition from individuals to members of a new loving family.
