‘The ‘rules’ were unnecessary and stupid’: In-laws decided women couldn’t use new pool
Florida has a mixed reputation, but there’s no denying it’s abundance of sunshine, beaches, swimming, and general outdoor relaxation. The idea of women swimming is not controversial anywhere, especially in Florida.
So one internet user shared her Story Where the exact opposite happened. She and her husband were going to his party for the football draft at his parents’ new home in Florida. Among other features, there was a pool, and she naturally decided to go for a swim while the sports fans did their thing inside. A problem arose when I told her about the strange rules in their house.
In the 21st century, people would expect their families to be comfortable at home.

Intimidating stepparents are even at risk for mental health
Although not as important as relationships with one’s own parents or spouse, in-laws can have a significant impact on a person’s mental health. na tendency For women, negative relationships with mother-in-law are associated with more psychological distress. The concept works both ways, as women who are on good terms with their mother-in-law show lower levels of psychological stress.
Any good relationship is a two-way street. There must be mutual respect and affection between the two. Even if the relationship looks good on the outside, there is always the chance that one person will always keep their mouth shut and be afraid to meet the other in secret. After all, the mother-in-law in this story doesn’t seem to think she and her husband are doing anything wrong. They may think that her relationship with her daughter-in-law is perfectly normal.
OP was right to put some distance between himself and his in-laws
Number one resolution Spousal support in such situations. The OP indicated that her husband thought the rule was ridiculous and rather sexist. Hmm. Hence her decision to ask internet users for their thoughts. Naturally, I agreed with her that her in-laws rule was at least irrelevant, as Florida is not a place where people in bathing suits can be overlooked. Despite paying for the pool, it doesn’t look like my in-laws will reconsider anytime soon.
Not visiting them is the ultimate, best option. Even if they change their mind about the rules of the pool, which woman would you think would be comfortable swimming knowing they’re judging you internally? They only work if they are maintained.circumstantial evidence show Literal physical distance between a couple and their in-laws actually increases the chances of a marriage lasting longer.
