Not everybody in the world gets along with their in-laws. This is the basis of one of the oldest bits of humor in the world; but it can be a lot less funny if their behavior stops being simply annoying and starts getting toxic. In case you can't quite figure out if your in-laws fall in that category, there are nine different kinds of toxic in-law behavior that might indicate where they stand. If you're truly unlucky, they might fall into several of them. Isn't love grand?


One of the best books ever written on this topic is Toxic In-Laws: Loving Strategies For Protecting Your Marriage by the psychologist Susan Forward, who's also done some valuable work on the experience of surviving toxic parents. If your in-laws strike you as potentially toxic, it's a wise investment to get hold of her book, as it's chock-full of strategies to deal with them and determine precisely what kind you have on your hands. Toxic in-laws, rather like rare birds, come in a variety of colors and species, and identifying the precise kind you're dealing with can be difficult (indeed, they might fit into several categories at once).


Now, from bestselling author Susan Forward, comes a remarkable self-help guide that is both practical and powerful. She draws on real-life voices and stories of women and men struggling to free themselves from the frustrating, hurtful, and infuriating relationships with their toxic in-laws. What makes in-law problems uniquely difficult is that they are part of a triangle -- you, your in-laws, and the person you married. One dynamic of these destructive relationships is that you often feel as if you are in the middle of a powerful tug-of-war for your partner's loyalty. And the hurt from your partner's lack of support is often more painful that anything your in-laws do. Forward shows you clearly how your in-laws manipulate your partner. This new clarity will help you feel less bitterness and far more empathy toward him or her so that you can begin the vital process of protecting your marriage.


First, Forward offers you highly effective communication and behavioral techniques for getting through to partners who won't or can't stand up to their parents. Her unique methods allow you to defuse the anger and feelings of betrayal that flare up when a partner won't defend you. 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. Most important, you will reclaim your dignity and self-respect, and reconnect more strongly than ever with the one you love.


Finally, a myopic solution addresses part of the identified problem while impeding its overall resolution. Partial solutions are not inherently problematic.[161] They can offer some benefit and may serve as the initial step in a series of constructive actions or part of a broader set of solutions. However, when partial solutions become an obstacle to further action or an excuse for not acting, they become myopic solutions. For example, fish consumption advisories were framed initially as a partial and temporary response to toxic contamination.[162] Over time, however, they have become a permanent feature of environmental risk management, potentially undermining strategies to address the contamination directly.[163] Even pollution control strategies, though effective and appropriate in many instances, may constitute a myopic solution if they hinder the development of more effective pollution prevention approaches.[164]


Consumption advisories provide one illustration of the potential inadequacies of risk avoidance as a strategy to address toxic risk. Risk-avoidance strategies also include use-restricted cleanups, air pollution alerts, pesticide contact warnings, beach advisories and closures, and boil-water notices.[310] Difficulties may arise in implementing such strategies, as poor risk communication, contradictory information, mistrust, or language barriers keep information from reaching target audiences effectively.[311] More importantly, risk-avoidance strategies face inherent limitations. Risk avoidance shifts the burden of responding to risk to those who would be exposed and requires them to forego important activities or resources.[312] Recipients of fish consumption advisories may have to give up a vital protein source or important traditional cultural practices; persons subject to air pollution alerts may have to avoid outdoor activities.[313] Furthermore, some harms cannot be avoided, and risk-avoidance strategies do nothing to address harm to wildlife and the environment.[314] 041b061a72
