Daughter-in-law relationships tend to fall into two categories. One is the tense kind that makes for good jokes and gossip. The other is the blissful sort where the daughter-in-law practically becomes a daughter in fact.
Whatever type of relationship you have with your daughter-in-law, it’s important to wish her a Happy Birthday when the big day comes around. Here’s a collection of birthday wishes for a daughter-in-law in a variety of styles, so you can pick the one that works for you. These birthday messages are ideal for writing in a card, sharing on Facebook, or just sending out in a text message.
