If you are visiting your in-laws for the first time, you must learn a few tips on how to behave. Your in-law may watch your every move, and first impressions last forever. Here are mistakes you shouldn’t make when visiting your in-laws for the first time.

1. Starting what you cannot finish

You may try to help with the dishes after eating at your in-laws’. But if you must help, be sure that you are up to the task. Don’t start doing the dishes if you wouldn’t be able to finish it. Also, make sure you dish only the plate of food that you can finish so that you don’t end up wasting it.

2. Wearing too much makeup

Keep your makeup simple. Don’t wear too much makeup to avoid looking like a masquerade. Don't forget that some mothers-in-law don't like makeup. So, it is best to ask your man what his mother likes.

3. Being someone other than yourself

The last thing you should do when you are at your in-laws’ is to lie about who you are. If you are asked a question you are not comfortable answering, simply ignore it or tell them you don't want to talk about it rather than telling a lie.

4. Dressing inappropriately

Your assessment starts right from the entrance. So, dressing inappropriately can pass a bad message to your in-laws. You should keep your dressing simple and classy.
