One thing you may not think about when you first start dating someone is that if you decide to pursue a future with them, you won’t be just marrying them; you’ll be marrying their family as well and may well find relationships with some notably sisters-in-law difficult.

Consider their parents, their siblings, their closest family members, and friends as part of your new extended family. Here are five ways to get along with a difficult sister-in-law.

Find something you have in common

It can feel exhausting trying to make conversation with a person you don’t like very much, especially if that person is the sister of your partner.  The more things you have  in common you can figure out with your sister-in-law, the more you’ll be able to get through your time together without having to navigate awkward silence and difficult positions.

Ask her a lot of questions

A simple trick to help you not only find a way to better understand your sister-in-law but to also strike up a conversation with her is to ask her questions. Find questions you can ask that help you uncover who she is.

Find a person in between

Find someone to be your buffer, whether it’s a good friend, another family member, or even your partner so that there’s always someone in between you making conversation and not letting the awkwardness sink in.

Choose your battles

If you’re battling the urge to always engage in conflicts, arguments, or frequent disagreements with your sister-in-law, adopt the mindset that from now on, you will choose your battles with her very carefully.

Give a responsibility to handle

You may need to  give her an important role in the wedding process. When you’re dealing with your sister-in-law during the wedding planning process and notice that she’s causing you headaches, give her one specific wedding task to handle to remove a difficult nag.
