We had a big debate at the editorial office. This kind of debate which ends up creating a tear within the team and which leads to the reselling of the common house that we had in Brittany. Should we be familiar with our in-laws or not? A highly societal subject that took hours to rip through to try to come up with a clear answer. For the good of all the couples on this planet and for the mental health of the encrusted spouses, I will explain to you why it is essential, what am I saying necessary, what am I saying imperative, of use familiarity with his in-laws.
1. You will really have the impression of being part of the family
Overall, when you use the "you", it is either that you are addressing someone with an authority superior to yours (like your boss or that nice policeman who comes to tell you thatgoing to have a fine of 68 € for night noise) or that you speak to a stranger. So using "you" when you've been around your boyfriend / girl's family for 10 years, got married, and even bought a chinchilla together, it kinda sucks. With the "you", you'll finally feel like you know your in-laws and care about them. It's two minutes to be the seventh wheel of the carriage.
2. It avoids you to spend years getting out of "So, how are we?
No more sleepless nights before the Sunday meal to prepare your lines without the words "you" or "You", like every week since you have known your partner. "Do one of you still want some ham rind, Michel maybe?
3. This will reduce the level of discomfort in awkward situations
On not going to lie, the level of embarrassment is not the same if you say "Michel, could you take a look at the waters, I think I have slightly obstructed them" that if you say "Michel, you will never guess ! I still clogged the toilets, ptdr, there is really time to change them eh! ”.depends, of course, on how long you've known them. But in situation 1, you'll want to hide in a cooler, while in situation 2, you'll have a good laugh and deal with your shit (literally and figuratively).
4. It's not like you never copulate
No need to use the "you" out of respect anymore when you know you've seen their son / daughter completely naked and 'he or she likes things that are not very catholic. Which still gives you a certain bond of intimacy by proxy. You also have files that can haunt them for generations, so you can lower the level of politeness a bit in exchange.
5. You will no longer have to make believe that you have just come from England
Similar to the technique of only making sentences without “You” and You ”, speaking English amounts to using“ You ”and therefore to getting out of this big trap unscathed. "is politeness. On the other hand, you will be annoyed when you want to participate in the debate on the use of Muslim first names as a middle name. All the more reason to use only the" You ".
6. You will no longer have the impression of being someone temporary
We said it above but the use of "You" clearly suggests that we is aimed at foreigners. Which means that your in-laws take you for someone they don't know much about and who will quickly get out of their life. A little hurtful when you know you've made a blood pact to live in undying love with your or your +1. So don't make the wrong choice, go for the “You” from the first moment.
7. C 'is faster to say "You don't have the impression of having burnt your leg there, Michel?
A lot of life is at stake during the family meal, so if you can save a few precious seconds to prevent something going wrong on the barbec ', do it. This way you will avoid setting the whole neighborhood on fire and never having to choose between " you and you ”.
8.s the only thing when you find out that your brother-in-law / your sister-in-law can befriend your in-laws
A sign that clearly shows that you are not the most loved (e ) from the barracks. You might as well immediately reduce the possibilities of being injured by imposing the “You” in a clear, precise and motivated way.
9. Your in-laws will no longer feel like they are 300 years old
They are already sick of being taken for dinosaurs when they fall asleep in front of them Drucker on Sunday after the meal, so please them and use the "You" to let them live in the illusion of their youth.
