In-Laws Relationship Scale

The In-law Relationship Scale(IRS) is a diagnostic and prognostic instrument that may be administered to individuals, within the Filipino setting, who wish to assess their relationships with their in-laws and future in-laws as well. The scale aims to identify and measure the critical areas present in the relationship as well as to provide an evaluation of the personality type of the particular in-law being appraised.

It is designed to help married couples address the real issues affecting their in-law relationship; as well as to provide individuals who are still in the planning stages of their marriage with an assessment tool that will help them evaluate the personality type of their prospective in-laws and eventually use these information to develop a better in-law coping technique.
