Part of the fun with any relationship is that it never is only the one you met. That is if it is a serious relationship. My wife and I married later in life by most standards, however in today's standards it was probably closer to the average now.
My wife had a senior mother, much like my own, however her mother has not taken good care of herself. While my mom will walk every day from home to church, her mom will walk as little as possible. This makes for a very long visit when she comes over because I spend a lot of time rehabilitating her.
We both spend time walking with her to rebuild her strength, and will try to work with her on strength exercises, but the whole time it's always depending upon her will. Often she will complain of the soreness in her legs, or some other excuse, but we work through it. As long as we have her here. In the future that will hopefully be up to 6 months at a time, maybe longer.
In the end it is all about taking care of family. I am lucky enough to have married into a family where every one gets along, but I know there are those who didn't. One of the comments my dad made was that eventually all you have is family, and that is why I am glad that we have a good family bond.
