time. Be thank­ful all your par­ents get on; in-law an­tag­o­nism is such a common prob­lem. Could you ar­range the next visit for when the in-laws are away? If so, be sure to tell his folks how sorry yours were to miss them. Could your par­ents visit for longer so you’ll have them to your­self be­fore shar­ing their company? And why don’t you and your hus­band visit them? With no tears or anger, ask your hus­band how he’d han­dle the sit­u­a­tion. But un­til you’ve set a new pat­tern, keep your kid gloves on!

Q: I’ve been in a re­la­tion­ship for seven months. My best friends think he takes me for granted. I want to be with him but with­out the has­sle from ev­ery­one else. He can be dif­fi­cult but not as much as they make out. Should I lis­ten to them? Or stay with what I re­ally want? A:

It’s not un­usual for a woman to find that her friends crit­i­cise her new part­ner, es­pe­cially if they worry he’s tak­ing you away. That’s not to say they might not have a point. Does he re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate you? Should you take their opin­ions on board? Think about them. You can ditch them if they’re non­sense, or work to­wards solv­ing any valid is­sues they raise. The re­la­tion­ship is yours, not theirs, so con­cen­trate on mak­ing it work. And if it doesn’t? Brace your­self for the ‘We told you so’s’, then you can get on with bet­ter things.

Q: I’ve been look­ing at run­way re­ports and metallics ap­pear to be a big trend. Any styling tips? A:

Wear­ing glim­mer, for day or night, comes with one de­fault rule—bal­ance the glitz! Take things down a notch by pair­ing a metal­lic jacket with a plain T-shirt, or a candy foil dress with muted heels. Plan­ning head-to-toe shine? Keep your ac­ces­sories and make-up min­i­mal!
