Q: What are the duties of in laws towards their son in law? Are they obliged by Islam to call and visit their son in law more often and if he is living abroad and comes after 7 months should that son in law be invited to any party etc? If a son in law takes this as an issue that why didn’t they invite me home etc. what should a wife do in this case?
A: With marriage, he becomes part of the family, and maintaining a healthy family relationship is an important duty in Islam.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
