A practical, laugh-out-loud guide to adopting your man's family -- from your first date to your firstborn

Girlfriends, fiancés, and wives, rejoice! Here, at last, is THE guidebook for practical advice about in-laws. A road map. A beacon of hope and light when, for the fiftieth time, you've told your in-laws what you do at your high-tech company and that your name is Christy, not Crispy.

Mirroring the natural progression of a relationship and incorporating interviews from women just like you, this hilarious, savvy guide will help you survive holidays, weddings, new babies, and the day your in-laws retire to the house next door because "it's a great real estate investment."

Discover a wide array of sanity-retention techniques and tips on scoring major points with each and every in-law. Learn how to sweet-talk his sister, mollify his mother, and defuse potentially explosive situations -- like when your pumpkin pie gives Nana a bad case of hives.

Offering handy translation charts with curse words in Irish and compliments in Portuguese, a list of gifts and how to interpret their hidden meanings, tips for reclaiming the holidays one Labor Day at a time, and your very own In-Law Vacation Playbook, I Heart My In-Laws embodies the old saying, "It's funny because it's true."
