'My in-laws don't like my fancy lingerie'

Feb 27, 2013, 00:39 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I'm 28 and I recently married the guy I was going out with for five years. I live with my in-laws.

But they don’t like anything about me including my lingerie! My mom-in-law apparently complained to my husband that she has a problem with the kind of innerwear I buy for myself. My hubby couldn’t say anything as he was too embarrassed but he too knows that they are essential to keeping things spicy in bed. What do I do?

Dear Prachi,
I assume that your ma-in-law saw your inner wear fluttering in the wind on the clothesline. Your hubby may have been thoroughly embarrassed when asked about it. They have not asked you or told you anything so there is no need for you to react. They can tell their son anything. As long as they are not chiding you, why are you getting irritated? Your hubby has not told you anything, so there is no need to worry. May be your in-laws are too conservative and traditional and have been taken aback by your skimpy wear. After a while they will not react. So there is no need to get into a verbal tussle with them. Live and let live.
