Holiday Etiquette for the Newlyweds

Your first Eid together as a married couple is a big deal. Now that Eid is around the corner, you must be thinking about all the family obligations you both have and how you’re going to split your time between both your families, while still having some quality time for the two of you.

Here are 3 tips to help you out:

  • Split the day: If one of your families has a certain tradition on the first day of Eid such as lunch, dinner or an afternoon gathering, make sure you give it your priority. Don't attempt to break family traditions. You can spend time with your second family the other half of the day.
  • Join forces: Start a new tradition yourselves! Gather both families and enjoy a new tradition. Either host both parents for breakfast, or an afternoon coffee. Don't pick a day you know one of your families usually hosts an event on. 
  • You can’t please everyone: Always remember that! Both parents will (and should) understand that you are now an entity on your own, and that your time is split between both parents and your in-laws. Do make time for both families, and make sure you keep the balance right.
